Sunderland Vs Norwich City: Confirmed Lineups

The teams are in for today's crunch clash with Norwich City at the Stadium of Light. If you want to see who's in and who's out, look no further...

Sunderland' manager Martin O'Neill certainly has rung the changes for this one, making three changes to the team which got beat off Queens Park Rangers last time out.

Out go Titus Bramble, Jack Colback and surprisingly Alfred N'Diaye, with Carlos Cuellar, Danny Rose and David Vaughan coming back into the team in a 4-4-2 formation. Danny Graham somehow still starts in attack alongside Steven Fletcher.

Connor Wickham has returned from loan at Sheffield Wednesday and makes the bench, as does James McClean who has recovered from a recent illness.

In what's an excellent use of the club's resources, Kader Mangane doesn't even make the bench.

Sunderland (4-4-2): Simon Mignolet; Craig Gardner, John O'Shea, Carlos Cuellar, Danny Rose; Stephane Sessegnon, David Vaughan, Seb Larsson, Adam Johnson; Danny Graham, Steven Fletcher

Substitutes: Keiren Westwood, Connor Wickham, Alfred N'Diaye, Phil Bardsley, Jack Colback, Titus Bramble, James McClean.

Meanwhile Chris Hughton has also gone with a 4-4-2 or maybe 4-4-1-1 formation with Wes Hoolahan playing off Kei Kamara in attack. Grant Holt and Luciano Becchio are forced to make do with a place on the bench.

Former Sunderland plodder Michael Turner will start in the middle of defence alongside former Mag, Sebastian Bassong.

Norwich City (4-4-2): Mark Bunn; Russell Martin, Sebastian Bassong, Michael Turner, Javier Garrido; Bradley Johnson, Jonny Howson, Elliott Bennett, Robert Snodgrass; Wes Hoolahan, Kei Kamara.
