Alan Pardew has revealed that attacked Connor Wickham and Marouane Chamakh will both be involved in his matchday squad for the visit of Sunderland to Selhurst Park on Monday evening.
The duo have been struck by injuries for much of the season so far, with Wickham recently coming back into the fold, whilst Chamakh has not feature competitively since the end of last term.
"We're in good shape," he said during his pre-match press conference. "We had a good victory in our last game and we have one or two players coming back to us this week.
"Chamakh will be involved in the game, Connor Wickham will be involved in the game, all the guys from Liverpool will be involved in the game, so we have a strong hand to take into Monday.
"Gayley's still out. The only [new] one who has a slight injury is Sako," he added.
"He may not train tomorrow, but we still think he's got a great chance for the game."
