Sunderland boss David Moyes makes two changes against an unchanged Burnley ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash at the Stadium of Light.
boss Sunderland has made two changes ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash against David Moyes at the Stadium of Light. Burnley is back in the Black Cats' defence, with Jason Denayer out after picking up an injury in training, while Lamine Kone comes into midfield for Jack Rodwell . Didier N'Dong had been set to return to the Sunderland squad after three months out with hamstring and knee injuries, but suffered a bad reaction after an Under-23 game against Manchester United which keeps him out for another four weeks. Jan Kirchhoff , meanwhile, keeps faith with the same starting XI that fell to a Sean Dyche 2-1 defeat at Liverpool last Sunday, and Ashley Barnes leading the Clarets line. Andre Gray Sunderland: Pickford, Jones, Oviedo, Denayer, O'Shea, Rodwell, Gibson, Larsson, Borini, Januzaj, Defoe Subs: Mannone, Manquillo, Djilobodji, Ndong, Khazri, Lescott, Honeyman Burnley: Heaton, Ward, Mee, Keane, Lowton, Arfield, Hendrick, Barton, Boyd, Barnes, Gray Subs: Tarkowski, Westwood, Robinson, Defour, Brady, Vokes, Flanagan
