Video: Sunderland’s Premier League fixtures for the 2015-16 campaign

Dick Advocaat’s Sunderland side face a trip to Leicester City on the opening day of the 2015-16 Premier League campaign.

Sunderland end the opening month with an away trip to Aston Villa and Advocaat will be keen to take maxiumum advantage of what appears to be a reasonably kind start to the new Premier League season.

Key fixtures to watch out for include the first Derby Day against Newcastle United, at home, on Saturday, October 24, before the reverse fixture at Newcastle on Saturday, March 19.

Sunderland face a busy Christmas with a Boxing Day trip to Manchester City before hosting Liverpool two days later.
