Andreas Pereira | Granada CF, vs Valencia (H)) – Sunday 11AM

Granada are looking for their first win since March 1st as they fight relegation. Pereira is in the Spanish side’s 19-man squad for the early Sunday morning game in La Liga and is likely to start on the left of midfield.

Adnan Januzaj is unavailable for Sunderland because his loan states he cannot play against Manchester United, though former-Reds Paddy McNair, John O’Shea and Donald Love could be in action.
