Team news
Eberechi Eze and Nathan Ferguson are long-term absentees; however Palace should have a fully fit squad available bar these two.

Odsonne Edouard is pushing Christian Benteke for a first start and that could be the only change from the defeat at Anfield.

Alexis Mac Allister and Enock Mwepu both picked up injuries in the Carabao Cup midweek and are doubts here.

Yves Bissouma will likely overcome the minor issue that saw him miss the Swansea victory.
