Team News: Kelly In For Tomkins

10 December 2016


Martin Kelly will start for Crystal Palace this afternoon against Hull City, with James Tomkins missing out.

Having scored in his past two games, Tomkins won't get the chance to net for a third successive game after he picked up a knock in the week, with Kelly deputising in his place.

That is the only change Alan Pardew has made to his line up following last weekend's win against Southampton, but he has named youngster Michael Phillips on the bench who could make his Premier League bow should he come on.

Hull meanwhile have made two changes to their line-up from their 1-0 defeat to Middlesbrough last time out, with Harry Maguire and Tom Huddlestone returning in place of Markus Henriksen and Ryan Mason.

Hull City: Marshall, Elmohamady, Maguire, Dawson, Davies, Robertson, Livermore, Clucas, Huddlestone, Snodgrass, Diomande. Subs not used: Jakupovic, Weir, Mason, Meyler, Maloney, Bowen, Henriksen.

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Kelly, Ledley, McArthur, Zaha, Puncheon, Townsend, C. Benteke. Subs: Speroni, Fryers, Phillips, Cabaye, Flamini, Lee, Campbell.
