Sunderland vs. West Brom (0)
We start with the ultimate snoozer, as 14th visits 15th in a game that means little in the grand scheme of things. Both sides will feel a lot more confident about their chances of avoiding a relegation fight with a win, but that could make this one a boring defensive battle. There are five better options on at the same time, so there’s no reason to watch even a minute of this one.
Aston Villa vs. Stoke City (1)
The fact that this is Tim Sherwood’s first game as Villa boss keeps it from being quite as uninteresting as the previous one. Still, these are two defensive-minded teams who aren’t great at scoring goals, so steer clear.
