Sunderland Vs Southampton: Confirmed Line Ups

Richard Sellers

Both sides have rung in the changes and rested a number of key players for the FA Cup 5th Round tie. Find out the team below...

Gus Poyet has, as he has hinted all week, made wholesale changes to the Sunderland team that lost at Hull. Only skipper John O'Shea and Fabio Borini retain their places in the squad, with Oscar Ustari coming in in goal, Santiago Vergini replacing the suspended Wes Brown and Liam Bridcutt rested for Lee Cattermole. Andreas Dossena, Emanuele Giaccherini, Seb Larsson and Craig Gardner also come in.

Most interestingly, there's a debut for Argentinian striker Ignacio Scocco, who plays through the middle in place of Jozy Altidore.

Sunderland (4-1-4-1): Oscar Ustari; Ondrej Ceulstka, Santiago Vergini, John O'Shea, Andrea Dossena; Lee Cattermole; Emanuele Giaccherini, Seb Larsson, Craig Gardner, Fabio Borini; Ignacio Scocco
