Team news

Having earned plenty of plaudits for the way they had started the season under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham were brought back down to earth with something of a bump in their last Premier League outing.

A four-goal thrashing of Queens Park Rangers followed by a convincing win over AEL Limassol led to suggestions they were a team very much on the up, but Liverpool moved to extinguish this early optimism.

Liverpool were convincing 3-0 winners at White Hart Lane and Pochettino will be desperate to see his side display some signs of recovery on their trip to the Stadium of Light, where a win would be a rather good result.

Sunderland remain in search of their maiden league win of this season but will be a force to be reckoned with at home, and all eyes will be on the performance of Ricky Alvarez, who joined from Inter on deadline day.

There is, however, no place for Sebastian Coates - himself an arrival on the final day of the transfer window.
