Sunderland team news
Gus Poyet has hinted that he may make a few changes to give those carrying knocks a break and reward the players who have played supporting roles in the great escape. The likes of Emanuele Giaccherini, Liam Bridcutt, Oscar Ustari and Ignacio Scocco are likely to come into contention for starts.

No idea. Don't really care at this stage. Sorry.
Predicted Sunderland line-up
Key Match-up: Wes Brown vrs. Wilfried Bony
Bony has been a genuinely superb signing for the Swans and looks capable of scoring every time he plays. Restricting him is likely to be the key to Sunderland gaining an opportunity to win this one.

Yeah, fair to say it wasn't a classic. So much so that I almost certainly covered it, had to look it up, and still can't remember a single thing about it.
Referee: Chris Foy
The 51-year-old has taken charge of Sunderland three times this season but is yet to officiate a Black Cats win. The game finished in a 2-2 draw on two occasions (Cardiff away and home to Southampton).
What the managers said
Over the last few months, we have had points totals we were aiming for; points we thought we might need.
And we kept changing those targets with almost every game to the point where we thought: ‘you know what. let's just try and win every one of our last few games'.
The aim was to win our every one of our last three homes, which seemed like a real challenge a few weeks ago, but is now definitely on.
We really want to finish off with a positive result for our fans.
We were disappointed to concede late on against Southampton, in a game where we deserved at least a point.
To come away from the game with nothing was hard to take, so we need a reaction. That's what we've been working on all this week.
We want to finish as high in the league as possible. We are in for a very tough match, but one that we are very much looking forward to.
Roker Report predicts
Can Sunderland really make it five Premier League wins on the bounce? I think history demands we win this one. Ending up in 12th position is just about the only thing crazy enough to end this weird season on. Let's say 3-1.
