Sunderland could be without defender John O'Shea for Wednesday's match against Liverpool after the center-back picked up a calf injury on Boxing Day against Manchester City.
Manager Sam Allardyce was not optimistic over the captain's chances to face Liverpool, but said the injury isn't too much to worry about: "It’s not too serious, but maybe serious enough for the exclusion from the squad for the Liverpool game. Risking him at less than 100% would be foolish because he could tear that muscle even more and be out for a longer time, like Younes Kaboul." Already without Kaboul, Allardyce said he will turn to either veteran defender Wes Brom or U21 stopper Tom Beadling alongside Sebastian Coates after resorting back to a four-man back-line.
