Middlesbrough vs Sunderland live stream: Watch Premier League online,Teams news, match action and analysis from the Riverside,Date: Wednesday, April 26,Start time: 2:45 p.m. ET, Location: Middlesbrough, England,Stadium: Riverside Stadium.
Middlesbrough are looking for their first victory of the 2017 calendar year. The club have been just as terrible or worse since they sacked Aitor Karanka midway through March. At one point, they had a top five defensive record in the Premier League, but could not even sniff a sight at goal.
After assistant manager Steve Agnew took over, they’ve scored four goals in six games, but have conceded 13 after only allowing 30 in the 27 matches prior. The main, and sometimes only, threat at scoring is through loanee Alvaro Negredo, who has eight goals on the season. The other players on the club combined have 14.
Sunderland are faring no better this season. They currently sit three points adrift of 19th-place Middlesbrough with a game in hand, and desperately need three points if they are to even think about staying up. Jermain Defoe has knocked in 14 goals so far, but, like Middlesbrough, Sunderland have nearly no other threat going forward.
