Fabio Borini and Jordi Gomez both start for Sunderland in the lunchtime kick-off against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Italian striker is one of two changes, with Jordi Gomez also returning to the squad after returning from a broken knee cap.

Steven Fletcher, injured, and Lynden Gooch miss out against Spurs at the Stadium of Light (KO 1.30pm).

Borini rejoined the club in the summer in a big money move from Liverpool.
