Team News: Ledley Fit To Face Spurs

6 December 2014

Joe Ledley has been included in Crystal Palace's side to face Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon after shaking off the hip injury that saw him sit out Tuesday's defeat to Aston Villa.

The Welsh midfielder comes back into the side in place of Dwight Gayle, and is set to be a part of a central midfield trio with Mile Jedinak and James McArthur.

That is Palace's only change to their starting 11 from midweek, with Damien Delaney named on the bench once again after overcoming a calf problem.

Tottenham have made two changes to the side that lost 2-0 to Chelsea on Wednesday night, with Robert Soldado and Eric Dier recalled to the starting line-up.

The pair come in for Aaron Lennon and Vlad Chiriches, with the defender unable to shake off a knock.

Tottenham: Lloris, Dier, Vertonghen, Fazio, Davies, Bentelab, Mason, Eriksen, Lamela, Kane, Soldado. Subs: Vorm, Rose, Kaboul, Paulinho, Chadli, Stambouli, Lennon.

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