‘Love that team’ – Many Sunderland fans left buzzing by starting XI v QPR



Sunderland travel to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium to face QPR in the Carabao Cup this evening and the strength of Lee Johnson’s starting XI has impressed many fans of the North East club.

The Black Cats boss will be hoping for a response from his side after they were beaten by Charlton Athletic on the weekend and a place in the quarter-final of the competition should be enough inspiration for his side.

Bailey Wright partners West Ham United loanee Frederik Alves at centre-back, while Denver Humes replaces Dennis Cirkin at left-back.

There’s no room for either Alex Pritchard or Aiden McGeady with Lynden Gooch and Leon Dajaku flanking Ross Stewart up top.
