Jordon Mutch and Fraizer Campbell start up top of the Eagles against AFC Bournemouth this afternoon, with forwards Connor Wickham and Yannick Bolasie out of action for the clash at the Vitality Stadium.

Both Bolasie and Wickham started last weekend at Stoke City, but are out for the game against the Cherries through injury in the only two changes to Alan Pardew's side.

The back five remains the same, with Joe Ledley and James McArthur in central midfield. Whilst Jason Puncheon and Wilfried Zaha will provide width.

Two interesting inclusions on the bench are Yohan Cabaye - who overcame a heel injury which kept him out last week - and youngster Connor Dymond.

PALACE: Hennessey; Ward, Dann, Delaney (c), Souare; Zaha, McArthur, Ledley, Puncheon; Mutch; Campbell.

Subs: McCarthy, Kelly, Hangeland, Dymond, Jedinak, Cabaye, Chamakh.

BOURNEMOUTH: Boruc; Francis (c), Cook, Gosling, Surman, Arter, Daniels, Smith, Stanislas, Murray, Ritchie.

Subs: Federici, Pugh, Rantie, MacDonald, Kermorgant, Distin, O'Kane.
