Two Sunderland players who should be given more chances

Duncan Watmore and DeAndre Yedlin should get more playing time for Sunderland as the season progresses.

Duncan Watmore

Duncan Watmore has been on the books of Sunderland since 2013, but he has not been given a proper run in the first team.

The attacker is only 21 years of age and has a lot of work to do, but new Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce should give him chances as the season progresses to show what he is capable of.

With the Black Cats struggling to create chances and many of the senior attacking players not playing well, throwing in Watmore would not be a bad decision.

DeAndre Yedlin

DeAndre Yedlin joined Sunderland from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, but he struggled to get into the team under Dick Advocaat.

The USA international defender has featured just once in the Premier League for Sunderland, and he certainly deserves more playing time.

The right-back gave a good account of himself against West Ham United at the Stadium of Light before the international break. Yedlin had a pass accuracy of 81%, and won one header and one tackle.
