No new injury concerns for Sunderland

Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill has no fresh major injury concerns ahead of Sunday’s final Barclays Premier League game of the season against Manchester United.

Indeed, even former defender Wes Brown has returned to training following a lengthy lay-off with a knee problem dating back to the end of January, although the game is likely to come too soon for him.

Centre-half Titus Bramble (Achilles) is likely to be included in the squad once again after making the bench at Fulham last week, but full-back Kieran Richardson and midfielder Sebastian Larsson (both hernia surgery) will miss out.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Gordon, Bardsley, Bridge, Turner, O’Shea, Kilgallon, Bramble, Kyrgiakos, Lynch, McClean, Vaughan, Cattermole, Gardner, Meyler, Colback, Sessegnon, Bendtner, Ji, Campbell.
