And Spurs boss Harry Redknapp continues to be without Ledley King (groin), Younes Kaboul (knee) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle).
Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon has overcome a knee problem and is expected to face Tottenham.
Jordan Henderson is doubtful with groin and hamstring problems, and boss Steve Bruce remains without several players through injury, including Michael Turner (knee), captain Lee Cattermole (back) and Danny Welbeck (hamstring).
