Lee Cattermole will miss Sunderland's clash at Arsenal today after suffering a repeat of his back problem.

Cattermole was sidelined for Sunderland's defeat to Southampton last month after being forced off in the previous encounter at Everton due to a long-standing back injury.

The Teessider went to see a specialist about the problem and was given a course of treatment.

However, Cattermole suffered a repeat of the injury in training yesterday and will miss the encounter at the Emirates.
