Phil Parkinson has named his starting eleven for today’s friendly at the Stadium of Light v Carlisle - with the team appearing to line up in a 4-4-2 formation.

Tom Flanagan claims the number three shirt in place of Denver Hume at left back, whilst Kosovan trialist Arby Xhemajli isn’t in the team when may expected him to start - so what does that mean for his Sunderland future?

CARLISLE: Farman, Riley, Hunt, Hayden, Anderton, Devine, Mellish, Alessandra, Guy, Reilly, Dickenson. Subs - Robinson, Tanner, Birch, Armstrong, Kayode, Toure

On the bench is new signing Remi Matthews, whilst Brandon Taylor also makes the team after missing Saturday’s outing at Gateshead.
