Sunderland are the only team in the Premier League that have not gone a goal behind in any of their matches this season.

The Black Cats have won just three corners in their four Premier League games this season.


Defeat against Sunderland would give Wigan their worst ever points tally (four) after six games of a Premier League campaign.

Only QPR (11) and Southampton (15) have conceded more goals than Wigan (10) in the Premier League this season.

The Latics are one point worse off than at the equivalent stage of last season.
