Team news

Veteran Palace keeper Julian Speroni is likely to keep his place in goal despite his blunder at Liverpool last week and the new arrival of 21-year-old Lucas Perri on loan from Sao Paulo.

Stoppers Vicente Guaita (calf) and Wayne Hennessey (thigh) are still sidelined. Left-back Pape Souare is recovering from a dislocated shoulder.

Forward duo Connor Wickham and Christian Benteke are both expected to feature in the cup tie as they make their way to full match fitness.

Tottenham trio Harry Kane and Dele Alli and Ben Davies are out, while midfielder Moussa Sissoko (knee) will have his fitness checked. Son Heung-min is unlikely to feature after travelling back from international duty with South Korea.

Quotes

Roy Hodgson

"I like the FA Cup when I win. Magic of the cup, they're dreaming. It's nothing like the glittering prize it was in my youth because we have the Champions League and UEFA Europa League now.

"Clubs talk about that a lot more, in terms of their ambitions, winning the Premier League and qualifying for the Champions League. Not many have the ambition to win the FA Cup.

"The FA Cup is still being won by the top teams, and our position in the table isn't as good as we'd like it to be. What is my ambition? To advance in the FA and get to the semis or the final, or stay in the Premier League, my ambition is to stay in the Premier League."

Mauricio Pochettino

"I think Palace have a lot of quality. Zaha is a very good player, but like always it's about collective performance. Palace are doing well and of course he and Townsend are good players and we need to care about them.

"Palace is going to be a difficult game, of course we are going to rotate because we need to rotate because we have two Premier League games on Wednesday and Saturday.

"It is going to be tough too, we are going to need full energy in every game. Sunday is going to be a game we need full energy in."
