Sunderland the latest gossip

Come on Sunderland


C Palace v Sunderland preview

Team news ahead of Monday Night Football's Premier League clash between Crystal Palace and Sunderland at Selhurst Park (kick-off: 8pm).

Scott Dann will be given the weekend to prove his fitness for the clash with Sunderland.

The centre-back is yet to return to full training after knee trouble, but Eagles boss Neil Warnock is ready to give him every chance of facing the Black Cats.

James McArthur could also return after a hip complaint, while Damien Delaney is available after serving a one-match ban.

Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher will be fit for the trip to Palace.

The Scotland international limped off shortly after half-time in last Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by Arsenal with a foot problem, but has recovered and is expected to resume at Selhurst Park, while there could be a debut for full-back Anthony Reveillere.

However, there is no other good news for head coach Gus Poyet with defenders Sebastian Coates (thigh) and Billy Jones (hamstring) and midfielders Ricky Alvarez (knee) and Emanuele Giaccherini (ankle) still on the sidelines.
