With srun --test-only SLURM will return expected start date AND expected nodes.

However, if the job is submitted, I cannot get the information about the nodes. Is there any way to find out, what nodes a job is expected to run on when the job is already submitted?

squeue --start only gives the expected start date but not the expected nodes.

I'm using SLURM 2.5.7.

That is corrected in version 14.11. From the NEWS file:

* Changes in Slurm 14.11.0pre1
-- Modify squeue --start option to print the nodes expected to be used for
    pending job (in addition to expected start time, etc.).
