Sunderland injury blow: Key player could miss season opener vs Man City

The former Bayern Munich was absent from the Black Cats squad which flew out to Austria ahead of tonight’s friendly against Borussia Dortmund.



Kirchhoff is receiving treatment on a hamstring injury he picked up last week and is rated 50-50 for David Moyes’ first Premier League game in charge.

Last season’s top scorer Jermain Defoe also stayed behind but is on course to play at the Etihad Stadium a week tomorrow.
