Team News: Pardew Brings Back Zaha

13 April 2016

Alan Pardew has gone for a strong attacking line-up for tonight’s game against the Toffees, bringing back Wilfried Zaha into midfield, and partnering Dwight Gayle with Yannick Bolasie upfront in a 4-4-2 formation. 

Bakary Sako drops to the bench in replace of Zaha, and is the only change to Palace’s starting eleven who defeated Norwich last weekend. Adebayor is deemed fit enough for a place in the eighteen, and is named as a substitute in place of Fraizer Campbell.   

For Everton, Funes Mori steps in for Phil Jagielka who was injured in their game away to Watford, whilst striker Kone replaces Deulofeu who drops to the bench. Tom Cleverley has not recovered from his recent knock which means Steven Pienaar comes into their matchday squad. 

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, Cabaye, Jedinak, Zaha, Ledley, Bolasie, Gayle. Subs: McCarthy, Kelly, Lee Chung-yong, Ledley, Sako, Wickham, Adebayor

Everton: Robles, Coleman, Stones, Funes Mori, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Barkley, Lennon, Kone, Lukaku. Subs: Howard, Besic, Oviedo, Pienaar, Deulofeu, Mirallas, Niasse
