Steven Fletcher and Jordi Gomez come in for the Black Cats in place of Adam Johnson and Jack Rodwell, with exciting youngster Connor Wickham continuing upfront at the Stadium of Light.
For visitors Stoke, Peter Crouch contines upfront as he seeks to maintain his fine recent form, while loan signing Victor Moses is also involved again as he spends the season with Mark Hughes’ side on a temporary deal from Chelsea.
However, another summer signing Bojan Krkic is on the bench after a slow start since joining the club from Barcelona.
