Wahbi Khazri made his first Sunderland start in today's clash against Liverpool.

January signing Khazri came into the side at the expense of the injured Jeremain Lens, in one of two changes from Tuesday's defeat to Manchester City.

The other saw Duncan Watmore included instead of Fabio Borini, who was a late withdrawal through illness.
