Team News: Dann Returns From Injury

3 November 2014


Scott Dann has recovered from a knee injury to start for Palace against Sunderland this evening.

The centre-half comes back into the side having missed the last two games after he was stretchered off against Hull City last month, replacing Adrian Mariappa.

That's the only change from the Eagles side that drew 2-2 with West Bromwich Albion last time out, with James McArthur also returning from injury to take a place on the bench.

Sunderland meanwhile have made four changes from their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at The Stadium of Light.

Costel Pantilimon replaces Vito Mannone in goal, and Connor Wickham also comes back into the starting line-up for Jack Rodwell.

There is also a first league start for experienced French full-back Anthony Reveillere and Jordi Gomez also is selected, with Wes Brown and Adam Johnson dropping to the bench.

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

Sunderland: Pantilimon, Reveillere, Vergini, O'Shea, van Aanholt, Cattermole, Gomez, Buckley, Larsson, Wickham, Fletcher. Subs: Mannone, Bridcutt, Brown, Mavrias, Johnson, Graham, Altidore.
