Martin O'Neill to assess Sunderland side ahead of Everton match


Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill will assess knocks to a couple of players before deciding on his starting line-up at Everton.

O'Neill said a couple of his players were doubts but would not reveal who they were.

If all are fit, one change may be Danny Rose returning at left-back, but otherwise the starting XI is likely to be much the same as the team that started against Aston Villa.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Westwood, Bardsley, O'Shea, Kilgallon, Cuellar, Rose, Egan, Cattermole, Gardner, Colback, McClean, Larsson, Sessegnon, Meyler, Saha, Fletcher, Campbell, Wickham, Ji.
