5. Jermaine Defoe
Sunderland have been excellent under Sam Allardyce and this weekend they prepare themselves for the derby against Newcastle. The team that wins it could well end up being safe come the end of the season and the stakes would be running high in this clash.
Defoe has been the go to guy for Sunderland for a while now and he could well do the damage for Sunderland as they look to get another win in this battle on Sunday.
