John O'Shea returns to the Sunderland XI in the only change from the 0-0 draw with Burnley in the FA Cup.

Billy Jones is on the bench but is not fit enough to start. Donald Love is set to return to right-back with Jason Denayer moving into midfield with Jack Rodwell.

Mark Hughes has recalled Glenn Whelan to his side, with Joe Allen playing off Peter Crouch.
