Manchester City in contrast have a near full-strength squad to choose from with the exception of Carlos Tevez.
Micah Richards returns following a calf strain, while Aleksandar Kolarov is back after six games out.New Year's Day at the Stadium of Light serves up the perfect fixture for many to remember 'Auld Lang Syne'.
Why? Well, if you'll allow me to wallow in nostalgia a little, it's because the Stadium's first game of the new year is a repeat of its first ever league game in August 1997 - and, particularly if you're a Manchester City fan, it's remarkable to think about what's changed in 14-and-a-bit-years.
The City team that lost 3-1 in that evening was: Margetson, I Brightwell, Wiekens, Symons, Kernaghan, Vaughan, Brannan, Horlock, Kinkladze, Bradbury, Rosler.
Some good names and decent footballers in there, but hardly the stellar names of the club's present day squad, AND it was a team that ended that season with relegation to the third tier of English football. Unimaginable in these heady days of Roberto Mancini and Sheik Mansour.

Sunderland have put their fans through the wringer more than a little in the intervening years as well, with three ups and two downs since they moved from Roker Park. They've had eight managers too, with the most welcome appointment being the one made less than a month ago.

Since taking charge, Martin O'Neill has managed two wins from four games, and sends his Sunderland team out for this one bidding to go three games unbeaten for the first time in over a year. By the players' own admissions, nothing much has changed - the difference for now has been just that extra lift in spirit that a new manager brings and the best managers maintain over time.

A first home defeat for O'Neill won't burst his bubble yet. A win would send it soaring higher still, and generate a few headlines about City's title challenge going 'pop'. How they start 2012 could be a pointer to whether or not the year will be momentous for the blue side of Manchester. With at least seven games to play before they're out of January, it's sure to be a busy one.
