The Black Cats of Sunderland hope to rebound from an Opening Day thumping at the hands of Leicester City when they host Norwich City at the Stadium of Light on Saturday (Watch live at 10 a.m. ET online via Live Extra).
Yann M’Vila will make his Sunderland bow, and that’ll bring plenty of excitement to the park. He’ll become the 1000th player in Black Cats history to make an appearance.
Cameron Jerome is up top for the Canaries, and he’ll certainly be hoping to score a goal that counts this week after his audacious overhead goal was whistled back for being a high kick in last week’s loss to Crystal Palace.
Sunderland: Pantilimon, Jones, Kaboul, Coates, van Aanholt, Cattermole (c) Larsson, M’Vila, Defoe, Lens, Fletcher. Subs: Mannone, Bridcutt, Rodwell, Watmore, Matthews, O’Shea, Graham.
Norwich City: Ruddy; Whittaker, Martin (c), Bassong, Brady; Redmond, Tettey, Dorrans, Howson; Hoolahan; Jerome. Subs: Rudd (GK), Wisdom, Johnson, Grabban, Hooper, R Bennett, O’Neil.
