This is what Sunderland fans are saying about Tony Mowbray's starting XI to face Middlesbrough

Tony Mowbray has named his Sunderland starting XI to face Middlesbrough tonight in the Championship – and fans have been quick to react on social media:

The fixture kicks off at 8pm on Teesside with Mowbray returning to the club he once played for and managed as Sunderland’s new head coach.

Mowbray won his first game as Black Cats boss after a 3-0 victory at the Stadium of Light against Rotherham United last week.
