Have your say

YOU could see a resurgent Sunderland take on Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea by scoring in our latest football tickets competition.

We’ve got 20 pairs of adult and child passes to see the Black Cats face the Blues at the Stadium of Light next month, on Wednesday, December 4.

The Premier League encounter comes just a fortnight before the sides play each other in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.

Sunderland still lie in the relegation places in the top division, with just seven points from 11 games, but recent home wins over Newcastle United and Manchester City have put them within touch of those above.

The Wearsiders will need to keep up their good form, however, if they are to get out of the drop zone, with crucial games away to Stoke City and Aston Villa taking place over the next two weeks.

Chelsea have stuttered recently, although they are still expected to challenge for the league title this season and are currently fourth in the table.

For your chance to win a pair of tickets in the Family Zone area of the ground for the Chelsea game, just answer the following question:

Which Sunderland manager used to play for Chelsea earlier in his career?

a) Steve Bruce

b) Gus Poyet

c) Paolo Di Canio
