Steve Bruce is without no fewer than nine players for the welcome of Norwich, including full-backs Jetro Willems, Javier Manquillo, Paul Dummett and Emil Kraft, which could see Matt Ritchie start at left-back and Valentino Lazaro make his debut at right-back.
Andy Carroll is a doubt and will be assessed for the home side.
Nabil Bentaleb may continue in midfield alongside Sean Longstaff, but Bruce has plenty of options in the middle of the park.

Should the former duo fail to prove their fitness, Lukas Rupp and Onel Hernandez may feature on the wings.
