Watch Live: Sunderland vs Swansea City (Lineups and Discuss)


Gus Poyet gets to put a stamp on this amazing comeback with Sunderland, and will look to give their home fans a big sendoff against Swansea City.

The Swans made six changes as they take on the Black Cats at 10am ET live on Esquire or live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.

Garry Monk brings in Gerhard Tremmel for Michel Vorm in goal with the game meanningless to the visitors, as Jonathan de Guzman, Leon Britton, Ashley Williams, and Pablo Hernandez all come out, with the latter not even in the squad.

Needing bodies to replace those sitting, Monk has instated 18-year-old Adam Kingwande for the first time since signing from Hearts in January, he is on the bench.


Sunderland also makes a few changes knowing they are safe, with Lee Cattermole out of the squad after turning an ankle last week, and Phil Bardsley also rested.

American striker Jozy Altidore is on the bench, as is Emmanuel Giaccherini in attack reinforcements for Poyet. The Black Cats will hope to give their home fans a show and not show any hangover from the completion of their amazing comeback.


Swansea City - Tremmel, Tiendalli, Amat, Bartley, Taylor, Fulton, Shelvey, Dyer, Emnes, Routledge, Bony.
Bench - Cornell, Williams, Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Kingwande, Vazquez.

Sunderland - Mannone, Vergini, Bardsley, Brown, O’Shea, Bridcutt, Larsson, Colback, Johnson, Borini, Wickham.
