03 October 2009 05:34
STEVE Bruce has named an attacking starting line-up as Sunderland visit Manchester United for this evening's Premier League game. The Black Cats boss has opted to go with two strikers up front, with Kenwyne Jones partnering Darren Bent for the second game running. Bruce has also kept faith in his two naturally-attacking wide men, Andy Reid and Steed Malbranque. There are two changes in the back four from last weekend's 5-2 win over Wolves though. Phil Bardsley returns at right-back after recovering from a virus, while Anton Ferdinand replaces calf injury victim John Mensah in central defence. MAN UTD (4-4-2): Foster; O'Shea, Evans, Vidic, Evra; Welbeck, Fletcher, Scholes, Nani; Berbatov, Rooney. Subs: Kuszczak, Ferdinand, Brown, Anderson, Carrick, Fabio, Valencia. SUNDERLAND (4-4-2): Gordon; Bardsley, Turner, Ferdinand, Richardson; Malbranque, Cana, Cattermole, Reid; Bent, Jones. Subs: Fulop, McCartney, Nosworthy, Campbell, Henderson, Da Silva, Healy.
