Swansea City looks to avoid a third-straight loss when they visit the Stadium of Light to face a Sunderland squad that has only lost once in five matches, but has yet to win a fixture (Watch live online at 10am ET via NBC Sports Live Extra).
The Black Cats have four draws this season under Gus Poyet, who will keep Jozy Altidore on the bench after his midweek goal against Stoke City in the League Cup.
Swansea has flipped strikers, with Bafetimbi Gomis getting the start for Wilfried Bony. The Ivorian took a red card last week and see the Frenchman take his spot.
