Martin O'Neill has made a promising start to life in the Sunderland dugout

Sunderland have a chance to avenge the defeat that led to Steve Bruce's sacking at the DW Stadium on Tuesday. Here's Opta's verdict on the encounter...

Sunderland have only won two of their 11 Premier League games against Wigan, with the Latics winning six.

The team to score first in each of the last four meetings between Sunderland and Wigan has failed to go on and win the match.

Wigan have won three and drawn two of their five Premier League home games against Sunderland.

Wigan have won none of their last seven Premier League games at the DW Stadium (D3 L4).

The Black Cats have lost five of their last seven Premier League games on the road, but won the other two.

Six of Wigan's nine Premier League goals at home this season have come from outside the box.

Wigan have won the most penalties in the Premier League this season (6).

Roberto Martinez's side have also conceded the joint-most penalties (6) along with West Brom.
