Zaha Back In Eagles' Line-Up For Burnley

13 September 2014

After making a goalscoring return from the bench against Newcastle United, Wilfried Zaha will start today's game against Burnley in his first game back at Selhurst since May 2013.

The winger replaces Yannick Bolasie who only returned from international duty for the Democratic Republic of Congo yesterday, and there is also a Palace debut for James McArthur - the only one of Palace's deadline day arrivals who starts today.

He takes the place of Martin Kelly, with Joel Ward returning to left-back, but new boys Kevin Doyle and Zeki Fryers are included on the bench alongside Joe Ledley who returned from injury to play for Wales in midweek.

Sean Dyche has included deadline day signing George Boyd who replaces Matthew Taylor in the visitor's only change from the 0-0 draw with Manchester United a fortnight ago.

Palace: Speroni, Ward, Delaney, Dann, Mariappa, Jedinak (c), McArthur, Puncheon, Zaha, Campbell, Gayle. Subs: Hennessey, Fryers, Kelly, Ledley, Williams, Ledley, Bolasie, Doyle.

Burnley; Heaton, Trippier, Duff Shackell (c), Mee, Arfield, Marney, Jones, Boyd, Jutkiewicz, Ings. Subs: Gilks, Reid, Ward, Wallace, Sordell, Long, Barnes.
