Team News: Wickham Returns Up Front

17 April 2016

Connor Wickham is one of two new faces in the Crystal Palace line-up for today's game against Arsenal.

The striker has come on as a substitute in the Eagles' last two matches but with Dwight Gayle injured, he reclaims his place up front for this game at the Emirates Stadium.

Alan Pardew has made one other alteration to the side that drew 0-0 with Everton on Wednesday, with Joe Ledley coming in for Wilfried Zaha, who has been struggling with a knock but makes the bench.

Arsenal meanwhile have made just one change from their 3-3 draw against West Ham United last weekend, with Petr Cech starting in goal ahead of David Ospina.

Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Gabriel, Monreal, Elneny, Coquelin, Sanchez, Ozil, Iwobi, Welbeck. Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Chambers, Ramsey, Campbell, Walcott, Giroud.

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, Puncheon, Jedinak, Cabaye, Ledley, Bolasie, Wickham. Subs: Speroni, Kelly, Mariappa, Lee, Zaha, Sako, Adebayor.
