Sunderland Vs Southampton: Confirmed Lineups

Stu Forster

The teams are in for today's crunch clash with Southampton. Sunderland are having to make more changes on account of Craig Gardner's idiocy, so here's how we and the visitors lineup...

Sunderland's Head Coach, Paolo Di Canio has made just one change from the side that drew 1-1 with Stoke, with suspended Craig Gardner being replaced by Phil Bardsley. Danny Rose starts what may well be his last game in a Sunderland shirt.

There's also a place of the bench for Connor Wickham, who has missed the last few games through injury.

Sunderland (4-4-2): Simon Mignolet; Phil Bardsley, John O'Shea (C), Carlos Cuellar, Danny Rose; Seb Larsson, Alfred N'Diaye, Jack Colback, James McClean; Adam Johnson, Danny Graham

Substitutes: Keiren Westwood, Matt Kilgallon, Kader Mangane, David Vaughan, Liam Marrs, Mikael Mandron, Connor Wickham

In a similar fashion, Mauricio Pochettino has only made one change to the side that lost 1-0 at Tottenham last weekend, with Morgan Schneiderlin returning to the side to replace Guly De Prado.

Southampton (4-2-3-1): Artur Boruc; Nathaniel Clyne, Jos Hooiveld, Jose Fonte, Luke Shaw; Morgan Schneiderlin, Jack Cork; Steven Davies, Adam Lallana (C), Jay Rodriguez; Rickie Lambert;

Substitutes: Kelvin Davis, Maya Yoshida, Vegard Forren, James Ward-Prowse, Steve De Ridder, Jason Puncheon, Emmanuel Mayuka
