Sunderland have no fresh injuries following their weekend defeat at West Ham United.
Jeremain Lens and Duncan Watmore remain sidelined by respective hernia and ankle ligament injuries.
Fit-again Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie is likely to make his first start since December after impressing as a substitute against West Brom.
Jason Puncheon and James McArthur remain out but Bakary Sako may return from a hamstring problem.
MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES
John Murray: “Sam Allardyce’s immediate assessment after Sunderland’s narrow defeat at West Ham on Saturday was to declare that his team need to take a minimum of four points from the two matches they play this week.
“The bottom seven clubs weren’t able to muster a single win between them over the weekend. That includes Crystal Palace, whose bleak recent run has now become one point from a possible 24.
“Their manager Alan Pardew lost his last four matches against Sunderland while in charge at Newcastle but exorcised that with a handsome 4-1 victory in his first visit with Palace last season.
