Stu Forster

Kevin Ball has named an unchanged first eleven from the team that beat Peterborough 2-0 in mid-week, meaning a first league start of the season for Lee Cattermole. Ondrej Celustka only makes the bench, with Craig Gardner retaining his spot at right back.

Sunderland (4-5-1): Keiren Westwood; Craig Gardner, John O'Shea, Carlos Cuellar, Jack Colback; Adam Johnson, Lee Cattermole, Ki Sung-Yueng, Emanuele Giaccherini, Seb Larsson; Jozy Altidore

Meanwhile Brendan Rodgers has also named a unchanged line-up from the side that lost 1-0 at Old Trafford in mid-week in the League Cup, sticking with three at the back. This means a return to the Stadium of Light for both Simon Mignolet and Jordan Henderson.

Liverpool (3-5-2): Simon Mignolet; Kolo Toure, Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho; Jordan Henderson, Steven Gerrard, Lucas, Victor Moses, Jose Enrique; Suarez, Sturridge
