Benteke: Still recovering from injury

Team news

The Eagles will have to make do without Christian Benteke who is still recovering from injury.

Connor Wickham and Scott Dann are back training after long term injuries, but not yet ready to feature.

The visitors could look to name the same starting line up for a Premier League record 8th time. Winger Helder Costa came off with a knock in the win over Southampton last weekend but should be fit.

Roy Hodgson

“I’m impressed by them like everyone else, and I congratulate them on such a good start,” he said. “I’m sure their mood is very good and their confidence must be very high, and it’s a nice thing to know when you’re the manager of a team that you have that going for you.

“They definitely pose a threat. Their start has been excellent and they’re obviously a good team. We’ve done our video analysis of them, and our scouting reports and everything else that has come back has been positive with regard to how well they’re playing and what good players they have.

“It’s going to be a big test. They’re way up there in the table which for newcomers isn’t always the case, so we are preparing for a very difficult game. At the risk of being boring, that would have been the case had they been bottom of the table with no points; that wouldn’t have changed our thinking in any way. We would have still been thinking that they’re a bona fide Premier League team with very good players who are able to cause you some damage.”

Nuno Espirito Santo

"All the players of Crystal Palace have quality: Zaha, (Andros) Townsend, (Cheikhou) Kouyate, (Mamadou) Sakho, (Wayne) Hennessey.

"We cannot look at the team as just an individual, it would be a big mistake. We know the strengths but, at the same time, we know the weaknesses.

"I only look at all the squad, I know and have passed information to the players that we are going to find a very good team, full of quality, a good manager and a tough environment.

"We must be ready for everything. We go prepared and ready to compete."
