Sam Allardyce has named an unchanged side for tonight’s visit of Arsenal as he keeps faith with the same set of players that saw their four-game winning run come to an end at Southampton last week.
The Eagles boss though has been boosted by the return of Yohan Cabaye who has shaken off a calf knock that forced him off at half-time against the Saints to start, as well as James McArthur who returns to the bench after struggling with a back issue in recent weeks.
Arsene Wenger has also opted to name an unaltered starting XI after the Gunners beat West Ham United 3-0 five days ago, but Francis Coquelin returns to the bench in place of Alex Iwobi after missing the Hammers win for personal reasons.
Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Sakho, Kelly, Schlupp, Cabaye, Milivojevic, Zaha, Puncheon, Townsend, C. Benteke. Subs: Speroni, Fryers, Delaney, Flamini, McArthur, Kaikai, Sako.
Arsenal: Martinez, Bellerin, Mustafi, Gabriel, Monreal, Xhaka, Elneny, Walcott, Ozil, Sanchez, Welbeck. Subs: Macey, Gibbs, Mertesacker, Coquelin, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Giroud.
