Yannick Bolasie could start his first game since December when Crystal Palace travel to Sunderland.
The winger has made two substitute appearances since recovering from a hip injury which sidelined him for 11 matches.
He starred at the Stadium of Light last season, hitting a quick-fire hat-trick in a comprehensive win for Alan Pardew’s men.
Bakary Sako is close to returning after hamstring trouble, but Jason Puncheon (hamstring) and James McArthur (ankle) are still sidelined and Pape Souare is suspended.
Provisional squad: Hennessey, Speroni, McCarthy, Dann, Delaney, Hangeland, Kelly, Mariappa, Ward, Jedinak, Cabaye, Ledley, Mutch, Bolasie, Lee, Sako, Zaha, Adebayor, Campbell, Chamakh, Gayle, Wickham.
