West Bromwich Albion vs. Sunderland
This weekend marks the start of the 2014/2015 Barclays Premier League season, with West Brom playing host to Sunderland in each team's opening match.
West Brom finished last season uncomfortably close to relegation. The team only accrued 36 points last year, three points and one spot away from dreaded 18th place. For much of last season, it appeared Sunderland would be one of three teams relegated, but an impressive late-season turnaround saw the club finish 14th.
