3 Key Battles For Sunderland vs. Liverpool: Coates To Keep Benteke Quiet?

2. Sebastian Coates vs. Christian Benteke

While one ex-player could score against Liverpool, another might want to keep things tight at the back. Despite Sam Allardyce signing to manage the team, the defence hasn’t been the best for the team and Sebastian Coates would have to be on his guard against his old club.

The Uruguayan defender would have to deal with Christian Benteke, who scored an important goal in their 1-0 win and will start once again after the injury sustained by Divock Origi against Leicester. Benteke will have the bit between his teeth as he takes on the Sunderland defence and he could bully them into making a mistake where he ends up with the ball in the back of the net.
