Missing several key players is hardly ideal for Ross as he prepares his side for arguably their toughest test of the season so far, but Sunderland fans have taken to social media to air their delight at the strength of the squad.

Here's the best of the social media reaction:

"Happy enough with that team, regardless of injuries it’s what I’d have preferred to be honest," added @76skelley
@MVN_98 was happy with the choice of captain, saying; "Max Power as captain already and honestly there can be no complaints about it"
"Arguably stronger starting 11 than Saturday but weaker bench. Cant afford any injuries," posted @gmo1976
@iAmCraigy said: "More confident after seeing that team"

"Given the issues with injuries and suspensions that still looks a solid starting eleven. Bench isn’t the best but we knew that it wasn’t going to be full strength tonight, " tweeted @_dgallagher99.
@BelligerentbiL added: "What position will Sinclair be? Slightly confused what formation we’re going to play. Still like the look of the side."
"Reeks of goals that!" said @GarryThompson9
