Delaney Returns For City Clash

28 October 2015


Alan Pardew has named a strong side to face Manchester City in the Capital One Cup this evening, with five of the starters from the weekend retaining their place in his eleven.

Wayne Hennessey, Adrian Mariappa, Scott Dann, Martin Kelly and Yannick Bolasie all start for the Eagles, with Damien Delaney, Mile Jedinak, Joe Ledley, Wilfried Zaha and Patrick Bamford all coming in to the side.

Jedinak, Zaha and Bamford featured against the Foxes on Saturday as second half substitutes.

Palace fans will be buoyed by the sight of Delaney back in the starting eleven, with the Eagles stalwart having recovered from an injury which has kept him out of action for several weeks.

City, meanwhile, have fielded a strong side, too, with Yaya Toure, Pablo Zabaleta and Kevin De Bruyne all starting.

Palaceā€¬ XI: Hennessey; Mariappa, Delaney, Dann, Kelly; Jedinak, Ledley, Mutch; Zaha, Bolasie; Bamford.

Subs: McCarthy, Hangeland, Ward, Lee, Sako, Campbell, Gayle.

Manchester City FC XI: Caballero; Zabaleta, Demichelis. Mangala, Kolarov; De Bruyne, Toure, Fernando, Navas; Iheanacho, Bony.
