Our left-back, who this week returned to the Training Centre following international duty with England, spent the 2012-13 season on loan at the Stadium of Light.

“It will be a hard game, as they always are up there,” said the 24-year-old. “They have changed a lot of personnel since I was there but I think it will be a different game to the 5-1 victory we had at White Hart Lane last season.
“Our goal as a team, no matter who we play against, is to try and keep a clean sheet and we’ll be looking to try and rectify our result and performance against Liverpool.”
