Team news

Palace's injury crisis continues with Andros Townsend and Jeffrey Schlupp now sidelined after hobbling off during this week's FA Cup defeat at Brighton.

Midfielder Jason Puncheon and defender Scott Dann (both knee) are out for the season after suffering knee injuries against Manchester City

Mamadou Sakho (calf), Joel Ward (groin) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (leg) plus Connor Wickham (knee) are still a way off comebacks.

Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield (hamstring) is a doubt but Stephen Ward (knee) and Chris Wood (leg) won't play. However, on-loan Tottenham winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is set to make his Clarets debut.

Quotes

Roy Hodgson

"[Andros Townsend and Jeffrey Schlupp] are both on crutches and Jeffrey is going to be operated on, on Monday. You always get a prognosis with these injuries but you can never really tell. We're certainly talking months rather than weeks.

"Andros doesn't need an operation he's in a boot also on crutches. I'd like to think he was closer to a month rather than months. Mamadou Sakho is improving slowly but he's moving in the right direction. Joel Ward is much closer to returning but is not ready yet.

"We have a lot of injuries at the moment but we still have a very competitive starting eleven and what effects us mostly is the players we can call on from the bench.

"We are stretched to the limit but hopefully those things will change over the next couple of weeks but at this moment in time we are badly wounded."

Sean Dyche

"[Palace] will know we gave a good performance down there last season and weíve happy memories of a good day. But they have settled things down this season and I donít think anyone was in that much doubt that would happen.

"You look at the players they have and they are a better side than results in the early part of the season showed, and thatís been proved by Roy (Hodgson) and his staff.

"He seems to have simplified things and they have players who are organised and willing to work, so we know itís another tough challenge for us."
