Team news

Palace will be missing on-loan striker Cenk Tosun who has gone back to Everton after sustaining a serious knee injury in training.

James Tomkins (hamstring), Mamadou Sakho (thigh) and Jeffrey Schlupp (hip) have recovered from their respective injuries and are close to match fitness.

Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu is out with knee ligament damage suffered against Liverpool last week, while defender Daryl Janmaat (knee) remains sidelined.


Roy Hodgson

"I’m expecting to see the type of performance from them that I saw on the TV on Sunday, where I thought they were absolutely excellent in every respect.

"They’ve had some very good performances as well. Yes there was a blip [in their results] which can happen with any team. It’s not easy to keep that curve going up and up and up.

"But I think they’re well organised, well managed, they’ve got very good players – I think they will come here tomorrow feeling good and confident, which they should do on the back of that performance and result, and we’ve got to be ready for that."

Nigel Pearson

"We know it'll be a very tough game for us but it's also one where I'm sure they'll be saying similar things.

"The corresponding fixture at our place was a 0-0 draw, but in terms of the actual game it was one in which I think both sides were trying to win it.

"It wasn't a boring game of chess, it was two sides committed, who on the day nullified each other, but it will be a tough game for sure."
