Hutton absent for Cats at AnfieLd

28 March 2010 03:31
ALAN HUTTON has had to withdraw from the Sunderland squad for this afternoon's Premier League fixture at Liverpool.[LNB] The Scotland international, on loan from Spurs, is thought to have picked up an injury in training and Phil Bardsley should line up at right-back.[LNB] And with John Mensah missing, Anton Ferdinand has reverted from left-back into the middle and Kieran Richardson should fill the hole in the defence.[LNB] Sunderland manager Steve Bruce has resisted the temptation to throw Kenwyne Jones straight into the starting line-up and the striker is included on the bench. Fraizer Campbell partners Darren Bent in attack.[LNB] Liverpool, meanwhile, are arguably at their strongest, with Alberto Aquilani the unfortunate man to miss out, with Dirk Kuyt expected to partner Fernando Torres in attack.[LNB] LIVERPOOL(4-4-2): Reina; Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Insua; Maxi, Mascherano, Gerrard, Maxi; Torres, Kuyt. Subs: Cavalieri (gk), Aquilani, Benayoun, Kyrgiakos, Lucas, Ngog, El Zhar.[LNB] SUNDERLAND (4-4-2): Gordon; Bardsley, Turner, Ferdinand, Richardson; Henderson, Cattermole, Cana, Malbranque; Campbell, Bent. Subs: Carson (gk), Da Silva, Kilgallon, Benjani, Zenden, Jones, Liddle.[LNB]
