Player to Watch – Jack Clarke

Jack Clarke has been an important source of goals for Sunderland this season and the exciting winger has hit the net ten times in the Championship already, making him the Black Cats’ leading scorer in the division by a distance. The 23-year-old should offer plenty of threat again on Saturday.
