Sunderland vs. West Bromwich Albion: Lineups

West Bromwich Albion are without Youssuf Mulumbu in the center of midfield for their trip to the Stadium of Light, and he's a potentially massive loss. His replacement, Chris Brunt, is certainly competent, but simply doesn't possess the same level of athleticism as the man he's replacing. Sunderland have opted to leave James McClean on the bench for yet another match, with Stephane Sessegnon, Adam Johnson and Sebastian Larsson preferred.

West Bromwich Albion starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Boaz Myhill; Liam Ridgewell, Jonas Olsson, Gareth McAuley, Billy Jones; Chris Brunt, Claudio Yacob; Zoltan Gera, James Morrison, Peter Odemwingie; Shane Long

Sunderland starting lineup (4-4-1-1): Simon Mignolet; Danny Rose, John O'Shea, Carlos Cuellar, Philip Bardsley; Adam Johnson, Jack Colback, Lee Cattermole, Sebastian Larsson; Stephane Sessegnon; Steven Fletcher

West Brom have been consistent in their march to the top four all season, and will be coming in confident after not only beating, but outplaying Chelsea last week. Sunderland won just their second game of the season last week, away to Fulham. Kickoff is at 12:45 p.m. local time, 7:45 a.m. ET. You can catch the game on FOX Soccer in the U.S., Sky Sports 2 in the U.K. and Sportsnet World in Canada.
