Squad sheets: Sunderland v Everton
5 years ago

Darren Bent's return to the squad is a welcome boost for the Sunderland manager, Steve Bruce, though the striker is not an automatic selection for the hosts following the recent goalscoring exploits of Asamoah Gyan and the form of Danny Welbeck. Considering Sunderland's last game ended in a 3-0 win at Chelsea, Bruce is unlikely to make many unnecessary changes. How Everton's manager, David Moyes, would relish such a conundrum ? his strikers have scored two league goals between them this season John Stanton
