Black Cats’ depleted for a key group game
Corry Evans, Tom Flanagan, and Carl Winchester are with Northern Ireland, Dennis Cirkin with England U20s, Callum Doyle with England U19, and Niall Huggins with Wales U21. Johnson is reluctant to use any senior players because the Black Cats travel to Gillingham for a League One fixture less than 72 hours later.
Sunderland’s defense of Papa John’s Trophy could get awkward when they face Manchester United U21’s in a pivotal group game at the Stadium of Light. Manager Lee Johnson is set to field a number of youngsters against the Red Devils because he’s without the services of six first-teamers on international duty.
McShane the key to United victory
Neil Wood’s team needs to win to ensure qualification from Northern Group F, having fallen to a 3-2 defeat against Lincoln City in August when playmaker Hannibal Mejbri was sent off. He can return from suspension in a probable 4-2-3-1 formation that will include ex-Sunderland youngster Joe Hugill at its pointy end.
One senior player who will be on show will be Manchester United player-coach Paul McShane, whose leadership and experience helped United’s kids win 3-0 at Bradford City three weeks ago.
United’s win price is simply too big to ignore in the circumstances, particularly as McShane’s presence gives them the senior presence Sunderland will lack.
We fancy United could turn on the style against the depleted hosts and recommend a 3-0 correct score bet that mirrors the Bradford win and the scoreline from their U23’s success over Liverpool this month.
