It’s Sunderland tonight in the League Cup and a tie which both managers have said will see them make changes to the line up you would expect for a league game.

Jack Ross, who will bring a team to Burnley for the first time, said: “We go to Burnley on Wednesday and then Peterborough United on Saturday which is a big game and a really tough test.

“It’s likely we will make a lot of changes on Wednesday. We’ve got a good squad here and we’ve got player who are ready to go, and we will utilise that squad properly on Wednesday evening.

“We want to go and win the game, that’s the way we will approach it. Equally though, we have to be mindful of the game we have on Saturday and the amount of travelling we have between these two games as well.”

It’s similar with Sean Dyche and Burnley, it has been the case now for a number of years that we make wholesale changes for League Cup games.

Dyche said yesterday: “I’ve said I think it’s the most balanced and competitive group I’ve had here. It’s not a guarantee. You could argue about other groups because I feel I’ve had some good ones here, but when I look at the rounded side of the squad, and the fact we have minimal injuries as well at the moment, I think they are players that are capable.

“So, I will certainly be changing the side. There’s no reason not to when you think of the quality of players that will come into the side, but there’s no other thought than winning the game, absolutely none.

“We want to win as many games as we can. We know the feeling from last year when it didn’t go our way and that’s not a good feeling that you want.
