Team News: Bolasie Returns To Face Sunderland

1 March 2016


Yannick Bolasie has returned to the Crystal Palace line-up as one of two changes for tonight's game against Sunderland.

The winger, who scored a hat-trick against the Black Cats in this fixture last season, makes his first start since the victory against Stoke City in December after recovering a hip injury, replacing Emmanuel Adebayor who started against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

There is one other change from the side that went down 3-2 at The Hawthorns, with Mile Jedinak returning as captain ahead of Joe Ledley.

Sam Allardyce meanwhile has made just one alteration to his side that lost 1-0 to his former club West Ham United on the weekend, with Lee Cattermole giving way to Jack Rodwell in the heart of midfield.

Sunderland: Mannone, Yedlin, O'Shea, Kone, van Aanholt, Kirchoff, Khazri, M'Vila, Rodwell, N'Doye, Defoe. Subs: Pickford, Jones, Kaboul, Cattermole, Toivonen, Larsson, Borini.

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Kelly, Cabaye, Jedinak, Zaha, Mutch, Bolasie, Wickham. Subs: McCarthy, Mariappa, Ledley, Lee, Sako, Gayle, Adebayor.
