It’s been an incredible start to Michael Carrick’s first permanent managerial job, with the former Manchester United coach and player overseeing a revolution along the River Tees. Middlesbrough were inconsistent and flaky under predecessor Chris Wilder, but Carrick has them firing on all cylinders and climbing up the table.

As things currently stand, Boro are fifth and have won eight games in 11 under Carrick. Prior to his autumnal appointment the club hadn’t managed back-to-back wins this term; they’ve managed a three-game winning run since he pitched up and are now on a four-game winning streak heading into Sunday’s showdown.

Sunderland have been a bit stop-start under former Boro boss Tony Mowbray. The Black Cats have won back-to-back games on just two occasions this term and currently sit 10th in the table. The standings are a little deceptive, though, with just three points separating them from sixth. It’s still all to play for in the push for promotion.

Sunderland vs Middlesbrough match stats

Carrick’s tenure has worked wonders to unlock Chuba Akpom, who has bagged nine of his 13 goals under the former England international. A four-time Premier League appearance-maker under Arsenal, it feels that now, at 27, the Canning Town-born marksman is really starting to find his rhythm. Such has been his potency up top that his 1.43 shots on target per 90 is the second-most in the Championship of any player with at least 20 appearances. He is also the division’s top scorer.
