Mark Bunn will play in goal again after John Ruddy confirmed via his Twitter account that he will be out for around three months. The thigh injury he suffered against Everton requires surgery and the loss is a big blow for the Canaries.
Turner and Kane remain Norwich's only other absentees due to injury.
Ryan Bennett should continue at centre-back in Turner's absence though Leon Barnett is another option.
After making the starting XI in midweek despite a knock, Lee Cattermole took a blow to his other knee and was forced off after only 6 minutes. He is extremely unlikely to play given that he is now nursing two injuries.
Matthew Kilgallon will deputise at the back if John O'Shea's calf injury continues to keep him sidelined.
James McClean has only made the bench in recent weeks, so Craig Gardner could play centrally again, with either Larsson or Sessegnon wide right. MON will also consider recalling Meyler to the midfield.
Norwich's recent upturn in fortunes has seen them build up a 7 game unbeaten streak, pushing them up the table into the higher reaches of the table. However, they are going to need to continue this run as they arestill within touching distance of the relegation places.
Sunderland have been extremely average this season, and last week's goalless draw with QPR will have disappointed many who will have expected them to win. Steven Fletcher has only scored one goal in his last 10 games for club and country and needs to start finding the net again if Sunderland are to find their way up the rankings.
Sunderland have won only 2 of their last 21 Premier League matches, and against an in-form Norwich side they will struggle to stop the rot. The Canaries will need Bunn to do a job in goal in Ruddy's absence, and as long as he does so the home side should edge it.
