Team News: Zaha In For Palace

2 December 2014

Winger Wilfried Zaha is one of two changes for Crystal Palace tonight for their clash with Aston Villa.

Zaha comes in for Jason Puncheon who drops down to the bench, and James McArthur is also included in the side instead of Joe Ledley who has a slight groin injury and misses out.

Dwight Gayle has recovered from the knock that saw him limp off early on against Swansea City on Saturday to start up front, and youngster Hiram Boateng is included on the bench.

Paul Lambert is able to name Christian Benteke in his side for this game after the Belgian striker completed a three match suspension.

He comes into the Villa side in place of Carlos Sanchez who is named as a substitute in Lambert's only change from the side that drew 1-1 with Burnley on Saturday.

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

Aston Villa: Guzan, Hutton, Clark, Okore, Cissokho, Cleverley, Westwood, Cole, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke. Subs: Given, Herd, Lowton, Sanchez, Richardson, N'Zogbia, Grealish.
