Man City pack their bags to visit Sunderland at Stadium Of Light on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Sky Blues will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The previous match played between the two at Stadium Of Light was within the last three years, in December 2002, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 3 winners in a Premiership match.
