Whilst I'm not too pleased that he's out, it will give us an honest assessment of what life will be like without him. It will force us to play a different way which I don't think is necessarily a bad thing and it will let us see if anyone else is going to step up.

I'd be tempted to fill the middle with energy, Hughes, Doucouré plus ideally a late addition... then play Eze coming in from the left and granted a little more freedom with the others behind him. Olise on the right and Edouard up top.

If we can build on the solid foundations of the last two performances then I think we can get through this season... then onto the summer transfer window where we'll need to find about half a squad LOL!

Wilf being injured has happened before and Edouard did ok out on the left. It’s not a great situation however. Ayew apparently played great on the left wing in the World Cup and there may be some mileage in playing a midfield of Doucoure Hughes Olise (right) Ayew (left) with Edouard up top and Eze given a free role.

Given that his game predictably involves waiting for the ball to come to him, then either running down a dead end or cutting in to have a tame scuffed shot rather than looking up at team mates in better positions I don't think it will be to much of an ask to replace his effectiveness. His poor form this season is evident, and maybe he has been carrying an injury, in which case he should have been rested earlier. Times change, and no individual is bigger than the club.

it will be the type of injury, if it is likely to be a re-occurring type, then it would effect the outcome of any contract.

it's a hamstring injury - he has no history of hamstring issues so it appears very much a one off, so not sure what your point is.

However, as a runner the hamstring, once damaged, cannot be run off etc and immediate rest and ice is required. I was disappointed the Palace medical team allowed him back onto the pitch.
A minor strain can take 3 to 4 weeks, so allowing him back on would only make it worse and lengthen the recovery time.
Palace do own an oxygen chamber which speeds up injury recover times though so hopefully he'll be back mid Feb.
