Crystal Palace have been dealt a blow with news that James McArthur is set to miss the rest of the season.

The all-action midfielder, 28, sustained ankle ligament damage during the midweek Barclays Premier League defeat to Bournemouth.

McArthur tweeted: "Looks like season over for me with ankle ligaments tore (sic). Just another challenge in my career to make sure I work hard and come back stronger."

Fellow midfielder Jason Puncheon suffered a hamstring injury in the same game and joins him on a lengthy list of Eagles on the sidelines.

Manager Alan Pardew said: "I have some disappointing news, McArthur is out for a long period we think and Puncheon is going to miss a long period as well so that is just more injuries on the list.

"There is some better news on the offensive players (Dwight) Gayle has trained so he is back and available.

"Sullay Kaikai has trained and he is available - a young player I would probably have used in this period without (Yannick) Bolasie but unfortunately he was injured."
