Aitor Karanka's men have lost just once in their last 10 outings to climb to third place in the table, just two points behind leaders Watford.
The young striker, who is on loan from Chelsea, is likely to continue up front alongside Kike for this match, with the duo having created a string of chances for Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Norwich will be hoping to build on their 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers, which ended a run of five matches without a win for the Canaries.
Despite their recent struggles, Neil Adams's side are still in the playoff places, sitting sixth after their win this weekend, just three points off the top of the table.
Last season, the two sides played to a draw at the Riverside, while Norwich won the reverse fixture.
Possible starting lineups
Middlesbrough: Konstantopoulos, Lopez, Ayala, Gibson, Friend, Reach, Leadbutter, Clayton, Wildschut, Kike, Bamford
Norwich: Ruddy, Whittaker, Martin, Turner, Olsson, O'Neil, Tettey, Redmond, Howson, Lafferty, Jerome
