Team News: Townsend Returns At Turf Moor

5 November 2016


Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend has returned to the Eagles' line-up for today's game against Burnley.

The summer signing is one of three changes to the side that lost 4-2 against Liverpool a week ago, replacing Chung-yong Lee, while Jason Puncheon is also restored into midfield ahead of Joe Ledley.

Meanwhile Damien Delaney returns in the heart of defence for James Tomkins, with all three dropped players named on Alan Pardew's bench.

The hosts have made two alterations to the team that drew 0-0 with Manchester United last weekend, with Jon Flanagan coming in at left-back for the injured Stephen Ward.

Club record signing Steven Defour is also fit again after a hamstring issue, and replaces Andre Gray in attack.

Burnley: Heaton, Lowton, Mee, Keane, Flanagan, Gudmudsson, Hendrick, Marney, Defour, Arfield, Vokes. Subs: Robinson, Tarkowski, Kightly, Barnes, Boyd, Gray, Bamford.

Palace: Mandanda, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Kelly, Townsend, Cabaye, Puncheon, McArthur, Zaha, Benteke, Subs: Hennessey, Tomkins, Fryers, Ledley, Flamini, Lee, Wickham.
