Following the impressive 3-0 win at Norwich, Sam Allardyce is expected to name an unchanged starting XI once again.

DeAndre Yedlin is expected to shrug off an ankle problem to take his place alongside Lamine Kone, Younes Kaboul and Patrick van Aanholt s at the back, with Jan Kirchhoff stationed in front of the defence in the 4-1-4-1 formation. Billy Jones seems the likeliest to deputise if Yedlin misses out.

Fabio Borini looks set to start out wide for the Black Cats, although Wahbi Khazri is less certain of his start with Duncan Watmore pressing claims for a return to the XI after his goal and lively display from the bench at Carrow Road.

Lee Cattermole and Yann M’Vila will be expected to form the central midfield partnership, leaving Jermain Defoe as the lone striker.

The likes of Dame N’Doye and Sebastian Larsson may feature off the bench, while John O’Shea provides cover in defence.

Jeremain Lens is a minor doubt due to illness.
