Norwich v Sunderland: Latest team news

Striker Duncan Watmore is back in the Sunderland squad for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League relegation showdown at Norwich.

The 22-year-old has been missing with an ankle ligament injury since the beginning of February, but has returned to training and is an option for manager Sam Allardyce once again.

Allardyce otherwise has no fresh selection problems as he looks to end a six-game wait for a victory and rekindle the relegation-threatened Black Cats’ survival hopes.

Provisional squad: Mannone, Pickford, Van Aanholt, Yedlin, O’Shea, Jones, Kone, Kaboul, Brown, Kirchhoff, Cattermole, M’Vila, Khazri, Borini, Rodwell, Lens, Toivonen, Larsson, Defoe, N’Doye, Watmore.
