FC Midtjylland v Sunderland: Confirmed Line-Ups

Robert Cianflone

The team sheets are in for the final game of preseason. Who has nabbed a final chance to impress?

Having mostly used Vito Mannone in Hong Kong, Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio hands Kieren Westwood a chance to stake a claim for the number one jersey.

There are also starts for defensive duo Carlos Cuellar and Valentin Roberge, though where exactly they will play isn't too clear right now.

In a strong hint to the starting line-up for the opening day, however, the front six are unchanged for the third game running, which is highly unusual for this stage of the summer. I think we can take it as red that, barring a new arrival, that will be the midfield and attack we can expect to see against Fulham.

Ji is not involved again, and neither is Wes Brown (panic stations!). Sure to be more news on that later tonight. Mobido Diakite is back in the squad following injury, though, which is nice.

Sunderland (4-2-3-1): Keiren Westwood; Carlos Cuellar, John O'Shea (c), Valentin Roberge, Jack Colback; Cabral, Seb Larsson; Adam Johnson, Stephane Sessegnon, Emanuele Giaccherini; Jozy Altidore.

Subs: Craig Gardner, Connor Wickham, David Vaughan, Mikeal Mandron, David Moberg Karlsson, El-Hadji Ba, Vito Mannone, Mobido Diakite.

FC Midtjylland: A lot of foreign people we haven't heard of and you won't care about.
