Team news

Eagles defender James Tomkins has been struggling with a calf strain and is unlikely to start, so fit-again Scott Dann is ready to come into the side.

Midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate is still sidelined with a twisted ankle sustained in the recent game against Southampton. Pape Souare (shoulder) is still recovering, while Julian Speroni and Connor Wickham have minor injuries and won't make it.

West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic is back in the squad after overcoming a foot injury, while Samir Nasri (calf) is still missing.


Roy Hodgson

"Scott [Dann] knows he’s fit and ready and knocking on the door. I regard him as one of the people at the club whose opinion I value, not just on the team.

"So much as it’s a blow to lose James Tomkins, it’s good to know I have two [Dann and Martin Kelly] I can call upon to go in and do a job.

"[Batshuayi’s] settled in surprisingly well; we’re lucky we have players who know him and speak French like he does.

"He’s bonded very well with our players, and shown what qualities and skills he has. He’s had a good week’s training."

Manuel Pellegrini

"I think Crystal Palace have a very good squad, not just a team. They have important players in attack and a manager who knows football.

"It may be they have not got the results that they wanted so far this season, but it is a difficult league. If we are going to get a result there, we must not see the results of their previous home games, but we must try to play better than them.

"The last 13 games must be very important to try to improve our position and maybe it is not possible to finish sixth and go to Europe, because the amount of points is too big, but it must be an experience this season.

"And we must try to improve our minds for next season to play in every game the way we have done against the big teams."
