Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio won't consider Ji Dong-won for their clash with Arsenal.

The Daily Star says Di Canio questioned the striker's heart when he pulled out of a near-post header in a 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace before the international break.

That loss left Sunderland with just a point from three games.
