DeAndre DeBrief: Boxing Day, 1500 GMT, Etihad Stadium

DeAndre Yedlin saw himself dropped from the eighteen for Sunderland A.F.C.'s trip to the Etihad.

Billy Jones started at RB ahead of Yedlin again. Wes Brown took Yedlin's place on the bench though Brown may have been preferred because of versatility across the back line given Sunderland had only one defender on the bench. Only time will tell if Yedlin has truly been moved to third on the RB depth chart.
