NUFC: Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie remain sidelined, while Andy Carroll is also unavailable. News of DeAndre Yedlin’s fitness is awaited. 

SUFC: Chris Wilder’s side were held 1-1 at Wolves on Sunday, a third consecutive draw extending their unbeaten league run to seven matches.

Their home form has been mixed so far; winning three times (Palace 1-0, Arsenal 1-0, Burnley 3-0), drawing once (3-3 Manchester United) and losing three times (1-2 Leicester, 0-1 Southampton and 0-1 Liverpool).

Referee: Stuart Atwell (Warwickshire) A third game of the season so far in charge of us and they’ve all been away from home.  Beginning with the 1-3 loss at Norwich City, Atwell then returned for our 3-2 success at West Ham. Andre Marriner mans the VAR controls.
