Sunderland are looking to bounce back from an opening day horror show at Leicester but will have to do so without winger Adam Johnson, who will be out for the next two months with a shoulder injury.

Wes Brown is hoping to be back for their first home game of the season after a knee injury, but Jordi Gomez is unlikely to feature.

Norwich head north looking for their first win at the Stadium of Light since 1997 and, like their hosts, are hoping for a positive reaction to an opening day defeat.

Martin Olsson is pushing for a return but is more likely to start his season next weekend, and Youssouf Mulumbu’s debut is delayed further with the former West Brom midfielder struggling with a fractured foot.
