Kirchhoff is questionable for Sunderland's Premier League opener on 13 Aug. against Manchester City after suffering a hamstring injury during a preseason friendly against Montpellier on Saturday, the Chronicle reports.

Kirchhoff was a solid piece in the defensive midfield for the Black Cats last season, and he was fully expected to resume that role this year under David Moyes. First team coach Robbie Stockdale said Kirchhoff will undergo a scan to determine the severity of the injury, which should assist in determining a return date.

Kirchhoff was substituted in the 64th minute of Tuesday's match against Crystal Palace because of fatigue, according to Chris Young of the Sunderland Echo.

Kirchhoff was replaced by Lee Cattermole, who then suffered a concussion, which could force Kirchhoff to play extended minutes Saturday against Southampton.

Kirchhoff struggled with a cramp toward the end of Saturday's match against West Ham, but he is expected to play Tuesday against Crystal Palace, the Sunderland Echo reports.

Kirchhoff has thrived in a holding midfield role after predominantly playing as a centerback while with Bayern Munich, and while his play has been vital for Sunderland, it's a position that doesn't lend itself to lots of fantasy points in most formats.

Kirchhoff could return from his hamstring injury to face West Ham on Feb. 27, the Sunderland Echo reports.

Kirchhoff left Saturday's match against Manchester United in the 14th minute due to the ailment, but with the Hammers getting two weeks off in between Premier League matches, it may be enough time for Kirchhoff to recover. Despite mostly playing as a centerback with Bayern Munich, Kirchhoff has been used as a defensive midfielder in his limited time with the Black Cats, a position manager Sam Allardyce said he'll continue to have Kirchhoff play.

Kirchhoff left Saturday's match against Manchester United in the 14th minute after suffering an apparent hamstring injury.
