Liverpool Vs Sunderland: Confirmed Lineups

Clive Brunskill

The teamsheets are in from tonight's clash between Liverpool and Sunderland at Anfield. See what changes both sides have made right here.

Martin O'Neill brought back Danny Rose after he was ineligible to face his parent team last time out. This also ends the horrendous Matt Kilgallon at left-back experiment, which should never have been implemented in the first place really.

With regards to the rest of the team though it's very much a case of as you were. Carlos Cuellar captains the side in the absence of both John O'Shea and Lee Cattermole, while Phil Bardsley has to be content with a place on the bench.

Kigallon - who we spoke about earlier - is shifted to a more comforting central defensive role ahead of Titus Bramble.

Sunderland (4-4-1-1): Simon Mignolet; Craig Gardner, Matt Kilgallon, Carlos Cuellar, Danny Rose; Adam Johnson, James McClean, Seb Larsson, Jack Colback; Stephane Sessegnon; Steven Fletcher.

Substitutes: Keiren Westwood, Phil Bardsley, Fraizer Campbell, Connor Wickham, James McFadden, David Vaughan, Titus Bramble

Liverpool also make a few changes from their win over Queens Park Rangers just before the New Year for tonight's game.

Andre Wisdom comes in from the start, as does Lucas Leiva. Local lad's and former Sunderland players Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing also start for the Reds, captained by Steven Gerrard as per usual, with bucktoothed assassin Luis Suarez taking the solitary strikers role.

Jose Enrique missed out with an injury.

Liverpool (4-2-3-1): Pepe Reina; Glen Johnson, Andre Wisdom, Martin Skrtel, Daniel Agger; Lucas Leiva, Jordan Henderson; Raheem Sterling, Stewart Downing, Steven Gerrard; Luis Suarez

Substitutes: Brad Jones, Nuri Sahin, Jamie Carragher, Joe Allen, Suso, Jonjo Shelvey, Jack Robinson
