Nicklas Bendtner: Substituted with facial injuries in the win over Swansea
Sunderland have confirmed that Nicklas Bendtner will require further treatment after suffering facial injuries in the 2-0 victory over Swansea.
The striker, on loan at the Stadium of Light from Arsenal, had to be substituted inside the opening 15 minutes of Saturday's game.
He was accidentally caught in the face by the boot of Swansea defender Angel Rangel and was replaced by Connor Wickham.
The Black Cats have now issued an update on Bendtner following a weekend scan, revealing that he has sustained a fractured nose and will continue to be monitored.
The head of Sunderland's medical department, Dr Glen Rae, told the club's official website: "The results of the scans have been received and Nicklas will now undergo further treatment.
"Sunderland Royal Hospital provided a first-class response and I would like to thank them for their assistance."
