Injury blow: Lynden Gooch

The USA midfielder was stretchered off last night after injuring his ankle when falling awkwardly in the 2-2 Premier League 2 draw with Tottenham.

Gooch has been a regular in the Premier League and EFL Cup squad all season and boss David Moyes brought him on at Anfield on Saturday when Sunderland were chasing an equaliser against Liverpool.

Moyes has also hailed the play and spirit of Billy Jones.
