Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew has seen James McArthur (ankle ligaments) and Jason Puncheon (hamstring) this week added to a growing injury list.

Both midfielders got injured during Tuesday's defeat to Bournemouth with McArthur out for the season and Puncheon set to miss several games. Mile Jedinak and Jordon Mutch are likely to step in for the duo.

Connor Wickham sits out the final game of his three-match ban, while Bakary Sako (hamstring), Joe Ledley (thigh) and Yannick Bolasie (hip) also won't feature.

However, Dwight Gayle has recovered from his hamstring injury and Academy winger Sullay Kaikai is also available for selection.

Swansea midfielder Ki Sung-yueng is out with concussion but Italian striker Alberto Paloschi and loan signing Leroy Fer go into the Swans squad.

Swansea (from): Fabianski, Rangel, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor, Britton, Cork, Routledge, Sigurdsson, Ayew, Paloschi, Nordfeldt, Naughton, Amat, Bartley, Fer, Grimes, Montero, Barrow, Gomis, Emnes, Kingsley.

Palace (from): Adebayor, Cabaye, Campbell, Chamakh, Dann, Delaney, Gayle, Hangeland, Hennessey, Kaikai, Jedinak, Kelly, Lee, Mariappa, McCarthy, Mutch, Souare, Speroni, Ward, Zaha.


Roy Hodgson

"I'd have liked a bit more composure against Bournemouth. We showed a bit of edginess in our play. We need to get that out of our system. We've had two good cup wins, but the league win has evaded us. Even a draw would be a good result at the moment.

"We need to get off the points total we're stuck on, that will help mentally. We're going to keep pushing. Swansea have picked up a little bit of form, they're a harder proposition for us.

"Our recent record is a cause for concern and we need to put it right. [Winning] would bring back a smile to everyone's face. We're all a bit miserable."

Joe Ledley

"Since the gaffer came here we’ve been doing better away from home than at home which is different to normal teams, but it’s going to be a battle against Swansea. They’re a good passing team, like to get the ball down, and they’re going to want to get the three points and catch us up so we’re going to need to be on our toes.

"We know we need to get three points as soon as possible because teams around us are picking up results and we don’t want to lose track of those we want to catch. We’ve been unlucky with the last few games and we just need that little bit of luck which we’ve been getting in the FA Cup. Hopefully that will come this weekend."

Francesco Guidolin

"Crystal Palace are a good team and I know [Emmanuel] Adebayor well. We worked together in France for the first part of the season before he came to Arsenal.

"He is a good player and a good striker, I don't know his condition but he is a player with many qualities. He is a modern striker and when he was younger I saw these qualities at Monaco. He is dangerous to us."
