Sunderland Vs Everton: Confirmed Lineups

The teams are in for Paolo Di Canio's first game in charge at the Stadium Of Light as Sunderland prepare to take on 'bogey' team Everton. See who's in and who's out right here...

Matthew Lewis

Sunderland Head Coach Paolo Di Canio has made just one enforced change from the side that demolished Newcastle last week. The injured Phil Bardsley is replaced by Jack Colback, with the ginger maestro likely filling in at right-back, the position where he finished the game last week. This means there's no place in the starting XI for last weeks goalscorer David Vaughan, or Kader Mangane.

Elsewhere there's a first subsitute appearance for youngster Liam Marrs, who joins Mandron and Laidler on an inexperienced subs bench.

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

Substitutes: Keiren Westwood, Matt Kilgallon, Kader Mangane, David Vaughan, Liam Marrs, Mikael Mandron, Jordan Laidler

Meanwhile Everton boss David Moyes has made two changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Arsenal in mid-week. Phil Jagielka has picked up an injury, so 2010 World Cup final ankle-kicker Johnny Heitinga replaces him, while Leon Osman is back from an injury that ruled him out in mid-week, replacing youngster Ross Barkley.

Everton (4-4-1-1): Tim Howard; Seamus Coleman, Johnny Heitinga, Sylvain Distin, Leighton Baines; Kevin Mirallas, Darren Gibson, Leon Osman (C), Steven Pienaar; Marouane Fellaini; Victor Anichebe

Substitutes: Jan Mucha, Bryan Oviedo, Phil Neville, Ross Barkley, Shane Duffy, Nikica Jelavic, Steven Naismith
