Yohan Cabaye has returned to the Crystal Palace line-up for the FA Cup third round tie against Southampton this afternoon.

The Frenchman was suspended for last Sunday’s defeat to Chelsea but is installed into Alan Pardew’s strong side for the game at St Mary’s, with the Palace boss making just three changes to the Eagles side.

As well as Cabaye, who replaces Mile Jedinak, Jordon Mutch and Joe Ledley also come into midfield ahead of Chung-yong Lee and James McArthur.

Ronald Koeman has also made three alterations to his Saints side, with Victor Wanyama giving way for Jordy Clasie.

Maya Yoshida also replaces Ryan Bertrand, and James Ward-Prowse is preferred to Dusan Tadic.

Southampton: Stekelenburg, Martina, van Dijk, Fonte, Yoshida, Targett, Romeu, Clasie, Davis, Mane, Long. Subs: Gazzaniga, Cedric, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Juanmi, Reed, Seager.

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, Cabaye, Ledley, Zaha, Mutch, Puncheon, Campbell. Subs: Speroni, Kelly, Hangeland, Jedinak, Lee, Sako, Chamakh.
