Victor Anichebe looks set to be on the Sunderland squad for the trip to Stoke City after he returned to training following a groin strain.
He suffered the injury in late September.
The 28-year-old striker has been troubled by injuries over time and has only made an appearance for his latest club Sunderland when he came on as a late substitute in a 3-2 loss at home to Crystal Palace.
Sunderland are bottom of the Premier League with two points from seven matches.
