The Black Cats welcome Stoke to the Stadium of Light on Saturday (Watch live, 10 a.m. ET and online via Live Extra) with Gus Poyet’s side in search of their first win of the season.

Sunderland have drawn five of their opening six games, but that elusive first victory has so far eluded them.

Stoke beat Newcastle 1-0 on Monday, as the Potters have conceded just five goals this term and have made a steady start under Mark Hughes. However, Stoke have only won seven times in 66 trips to Sunderland in the league but did win in a League Cup third round match in September.


In teams news Sunderland bring in Steven Fletcher and Jordi Gomez to the line up, while Stoke start with Marko Arnautovic who replaces the injured Mame Biram Diouf.

Sunderland: Mannone, Jones, van Aanholt, Vergini, O’Shea, Cattermole, Larsson, Gomez, Buckley, Wickham, Fletcher.

Stoke City: Begovic, Bardsley, Shawcross, Wilson, Muniesa; Nzonzi, Whelan; Arnautovic, Adam, Moses; Crouch
