Sunderland boss Gus Poyet made one enforced change from the side that recorded their first win of the season last time out against Stoke, Wes Brown replacing the injured Billy Jones in a Black Cats’ defensive line that will try to prevent player of the month Graziano Pelle adding to his five goals for the hosts.

Southampton made two changes for the Barclays Premier League visit of Sunderland as they looked to get back to winning ways following defeat at Tottenham.

Sadio Mane dropped to the bench having played for Senegal in midweek as Shane Long was recalled by manager of the month Ronald Koeman, who also welcomed back Jack Cork in place of Victor Wanyama.
