The teams are in for the Black Cats trip to Turf Moor.

Gus Poyet has made one change from the side that drew 2-2 with Spurs, with Emanuele Giaccherini earning a first start of the season in place of Ricky Alvarez, who doesn't make it to the bench. Another player out of the matchday squad entirely is Steven Fletcher, with Danny Graham judged a better option. Ouch.

Sunderland (4-3-3): Mannone; Vergini, O'Shea, Brown, Van Aanholt; Cattermole, Rodwell, Larsson; Johnson, Giaccherini, Wickham

Subs: Pantilimon, Jones, Bridcutt, Gomez, Buckley, Altidore, Graham

Meanwhile, the Kettering Hesinberg Sean Dyche has also made one enforced change to the Burnley team that drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace. The injured Danny Ings is replaced by Marvin Sordell.

Burnley (4-4-2): Heaton; Trippier, Shackell, Duff, Mee; Arfield, Jones, Marney, Boyd; Sordell, Jutkiewicz

Subs: Gilks, Wallace, Kightley, Keane, Barnes, Reid, Ward
