Team News: Dikgacoi Returns For Palace Against Liverpool

5 May 2014

Kagisho Dikgacoi returns to the Crystal Palace midfield for tonight's game against Liverpool.

The South African midfielder will partner Mile Jedinak in the centre of the Eagles' midfield, having missed out on last weekend's game against Manchester City with a knock.

Dikgacoi replaces Cameron Jerome, who is suffering with a illness and has therefore not been named in Tony Pulis' matchday 18. 

That means Marouane Chamakh is expected to lead the line on his own, with Joe Ledley playing in the hole behind the Moroccan international.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers starts with Steven Gerrard, Joe Allen and Lucas in central midfield, with Philippe Coutinho on the bench.

Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge both start for the Reds. 

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Mariappa, Dann, Delaney, Ward, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Ledley, Bolasie, Puncheon, Chamakh. 

Crystal Palace substitutes: Hennessey, Gabbidon, Parr, O'Keefe, Ince, Gayle, Murray. 

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Skrtel, Sakho, Gerrard, Allen, Lucas, Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez.

Liverpool substitutes: Jones, Toure, Agger, Coutinho, Aspas, Moses, Cissokho.
