Giaccherini picked up a knock to his ankle during Sunderland's scoreless draw with Burnley on Saturday, though manager Gus Poyet relayed that it may not be serious. "I think it is less than what we thought, it looked bad because he cleared the ball and had a tackle on his ankle, but he was telling me in the dressing room that he doesn't think it is bad," Poyet said.

Will Buckley came on for Giaccherini in the 73rd minute after he suffered the injury. Even if the injury is not serious, Giaccherini will not likely play in Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Stoke City, but may be available next Saturday against Swansea if his ankle responds to treatment.

Giaccherini had a goal and an assist in Sunderland's surprising 4-0 win over Cardiff City on Sunday.

Sunderland have scored eight goals in their last three games, and Giaccherini has one goal and three assists in that span, all while playing fewer than 30 minutes in each match. He's been a great spark off the bench and will be needed in next weekend's tie with Manchester Untied at Old Trafford.

Giaccherini was the one bright spot for Sunderland on Saturday, scoring the only goal as a sub in a 4-1 loss at Arsenal.

Giaccherini was brought on at half for Jozy Altidore who has really struggled for the Black Cats. It is very possible Giaccherini will find himself in the starting XI next weekend against West Brom as Sunderland desperately seek for a reliable striker.
