Tonight's Team News: Chamakh's Back!

16 April 2014

Ahead of tonight's game against Everton Tony Pulis has made one change to the side that have picked up three straight Premier League victories to put Palace on the brink of safety.

Striker Marouane Chamkah returns to the starting line-up for the first time since the 1-1 draw with Swansea City last month in place of the injured Kagisho Dikgacoi, who limped off with a hamstring injury in Saturday's win over Aston Villa, meaning that Joe Ledley looks set to drop into the midfield gap left in the South African's absence.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has made three changes to the side that beat Sunderland in their last league outing, with Kevin Mirallas, Aiden McGeady and Ross Barkley coming in for Leon Osman, Steven Naismith and James McCarthy who all drop to the bench.

Everton: Howard; Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines; Barry, Mirallas, Barkley, Deulofeu, McGeady; Lukaku.

Subs: Robles, Hibbert, Naismith, McCarthy, Osman, Garbutt, Alcaraz. 

Palace: Speroni, Mariappa, Delaney, Dann, Ward, Jedinak ©, Ledley, Bolasie, Puncheon, Chamakh, Jerome.

Subs: Hennessey, Parr, McCarthy, Ince, O'Keefe, Gayle, Murray
