The return of Carl Jenkinson today will be huge boost to our chances of ending what is becoming a pretty ridiculous run of poor form.

But that still doesn’t hide the fact that we’ve still got an injury crisis on our hands. James Tomkins, Winston Reid and Enner Valencia are all sidelined, though that doesn’t mean we’re weakened to much by their absence.

The starting XI against Arsenal was arguably our strongest available to us at the time, so with a couple of changes this evening to compliment to return of couple of players and we should be too strong for a Sunderland side in turmoil.

So is this how we’ll be lining up against the Black Cats this evening?
