US forward plays first match since injury in 0-0 draw with Liverpool

Sunderland and Liverpool were frustrated in their efforts to climb the Premier League 2 Division 1 table by a goalless draw at Eppleton Colliery Welfare Ground.

The home team, who had Lynden Gooch back from injury in the attack, started brightly but it was Liverpool who ended the match the stronger.

While Gooch’s 60-minute performance was welcome, as well as a full 90 minutes from Sheyi Ojo, for Liverpool, more concerning was the departure of Joel Asoro, Sunderland's main threat, on a stretcher because of injury.
