Sunderland manager David Moyes has admitted that he is concerned about the number of players complaining of injury in his squad, claiming that he may "have to take the kids" to face Arsenal.
With other unnamed players also at risk of missing out, Moyes admits that he may have to turn to his Under-23s squad for the penultimate game of a bleak season.
"I'm more concerned that I have now got a couple others who are saying they have got injuries as well," he told reporters. "So I need to make sure I have got a team to put out. We will definitely have a team to put out and we will go there and be committed but there are one or two we are not sure about.
"I won't say [who] just now but there are a couple of others we are concerned about. It might be that we have to take the kids with us to Arsenal but that is not a problem."
