Triple injury boost for Sunderland ahead of West Ham clash

Sunderland take on the Hammers this weekend and can call on three of their previously injured players.

Sunderland have given an injury update on their official website ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against West Ham United.

The Black Cats are currently 19th in the table with 12 matches remaining, but their recent upturn in form means they are only one point away from safety and they will be quietly confident of building on their 2-1 victory against Manchester United last time out.

The report has announced that Seb Larsson, Younes Kaboul and January signing Jan Kirchhoff have all returned to training this week as they bid to keep their fight against relegation on track.

Larsson has not featured since November while centre-back Kaboul has been out since December.

However, given how well Sunderland’s January additions have done both players may struggle to walk straight back into manager Sam Allardyce’s starting line-up.

Kirchhoff looked shaky on his debut but has quickly got used to his new surroundings and has shown what a talent he is.

Having been taken off with an injury against United, he now looks set to return as Sunderland look to get one over Slaven Bilic’s impressive West Ham side.
