Neil Warnock's team are without a win in three and go into tonight's game hoping to get back to winning ways over Gus Poyet's lacklustre side.
Last weekend Palace dropped two points at The Hawthorns with Warnock furious at referee Mark Clattenburg after he failed to award his team a firs-half penalty, or penalise Craig Dawson for elbowing Julian Speroni.
Sunderland followed up their 8-0 drubbing by Southampton by giving away two goals against Arsenal last week in a disinterested performance at the Stadium of Light.
Poyet, who has been complaining at the lack of players recruited in the summer, is desperate to pick up what would be just his second Premier League win of the season.
