Team News: Campbell Gets City Call

20 December 2014

Fraizer Campbell returns to the Crystal Palace line-up for this afternoon’s clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

The Mancunian, and former Manchester United striker, has replaced the injured Marouane Chamkah who pulled a hamstring in last week’s draw against Stoke City, and will face the club whom he scored three times against last season for Cardiff City.

Jason Puncheon also comes back into the first 11, taking Wilfried Zaha's place, with Adrian Mariappa returning from a knee injury to take a place amongst the substitutes. 

The reigning Premier League champions have made six changes to the side that beat Leicester City last weekend.

With strikers Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic all out, City have named no recognised attacker in their starting line-up, with Yaya Toure expected to fill in up top.

Both full-backs have been replaced with Pablo Zabaleta and Aleksandar Kolarov coming in for Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna, and club captain Vincent Kompany is injured and replaced by Martin Demichelis.

Meanwhile Fernandinho, Jesus Navas and James Milner come in for Frank Lampard, Fernando and Jose Pozo.

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Mangala, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Navas, Milner, Silva, Nasri, Toure. Subs: Caballero, Sagna, Boyata, Sinclair, Lampard, Reges, Ambrose.

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Kelly, Dann, Hangeland, Ward, Bolasie, Jedinak, Ledley, McArthur, Puncheon, Campbell. Subs: Hennessey, Mariappa, Delaney, Bannan, Thomas, Zaha, Gayle.
