Team News: Jedinak Returns For Palace

7 December 2015

Mile Jedinak has been handed his first Premier League start of the season this evening as he returns to the Crystal Palace side to play Everton tonight.

The Aussie will captain the Eagles once again and is the one change to Alan Pardew’s line-up from their 5-1 drubbing of Newcastle United nine days ago.

Jedinak replaces the suspended Wilfried Zaha, with James McArthur likely to be pushed into the hole behind Connor Wickham and Jason Puncheon shifting out wide to fill in for Zaha.

Everton meanwhile have made two changes to the side that beat Middlesbrough to advance into the Capital One Cup semi-finals last Tuesday night.

As expected Tim Howard has returned in goal, and Arouna Kone also comes back into the team ahead of Leon Osman.

James McCarthy hasn't recovered from injury in time so Tom Cleverley continues in central midfield.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Funes Mori, Stones, Galloway, Barry, Cleverley, Deulofeou, Barkley, Kone, Lukaku. Subs: Robles, Baines, Gibson, Osman, Mirallas, Lennon, Naismith.

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, Cabaye, Jedinak, Bolasie, McArthur, Puncheon, Wickham. Subs: Speroni, Kelly, Mutch, Bamford, Campbll, Gayle, Chamakh.
