DON’T miss tonight’s online Football Echo – for Chris Young’s report and verdict on Burnley v Sunderland.

Emanuele Giaccherini was the only change for Sunderland at Turf Moor, with the Italian international replacing Ricky Alvarez, who made his debut in last week’s raw at home to Tottenham and was not included in the matchday 18 today.

As well as the biggest coverage of SAFC, we also have Tony Gillan’s View From The Bridge and Yesterdays, looking back to Sunderland’s Roker Park clash with Manchester City in September 1976.

We also have 13 pages of local football, eight pages of the Junior Football Echo, covering the Russell Foster Youth League, Monday’s race cards and all today’s live action in the Premier League.

The Football Echo goes online on this website from around 6.45pm
