Delaney Returns For Spurs Clash

20 September 2015


Palace centre-back Damien Delaney has returned from injury to regain his starting spot in the Eagles' starting eleven for today's clash versus Tottenham Hotspur.

The Irish defender missed last week's home game with Manchester City, but had been in superb form away to Chelsea before the international break, and his return to the side will be a boost for Alan Pardew's men.

He will captain the side and partner Brede Hangeland in the heart of defence, with Martin Kelly and Pape Souare featuring either side. Alex McCarthy starts in goal, making up the back line.

In central midfield, Yohan Cabaye partners James McArthur, with Wilfried Zaha and Jason Puncheon providing width. Bakary Sako starts behind Yannick Bolasie, who has been deployed as a striker, as he was against City.

CPFC XI: McCarthy; Kelly, Hangeland, Delaney (C), Souare; McArthur, Cabaye; Zaha, Puncheon, Sako; Bolasie.

Subs: Hennessey, Mariappa, Ledley, Mutch, Lee, Campbell, Bamford.

Tottenham Hotspur​ XI: LLoris (C); Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Alli; Lamela, Chadli, Son; Kane.

Subs: Vorm, Tripper, Fazio, Clinton, Townsend, Eriksen, Carroll.
