Swansea v Palace: Bolasie's Back

2 March 2014

Yannick Bolasie comes back into the starting line-up for Crystal Palace against Swansea City this afternoon.

The Democratic Republic of Congo winger is included in Tony Pulis' XI for the first time since the 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion on 8th February.

Bolasie is expected to form part of a five-man midfield at the Liberty Stadium, with Jason Puncheon making way for the Eagles' number 7 in one of two changes to the side that lost to Manchester United last weekend.

The only other switch sees Kagisho Dikgacoi come into the middle of the park in place of striker Glenn Murray, who picked up a knock in midweek but is fit enough to take up a place on the bench.  

Meanwhile, Jerome Thomas returns to the squad as he takes his place among the substitutes, having recovered from the back problem that kept him out of the 2-0 defeat to the Red Devils at Selhurst Park last time out.

Swansea City: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams (C), Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Dyer, Hernandez, Routledge, Bony.

Swansea City subs: Tremmel, Amat, Taylor, Canas, Emnes, Vazquez, Lita.

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Parr, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Bolasie, Ledley, Ince, Chamakh. 

Crystal Palace subs: Hennessey, Gabbidon, Bannan, Thomas, Gayle, Jerome, Murray.
