Team News: Palace Unchanged Once Again

15 April 2017

Sam Allardyce has named an unchanged side for the third game in a row as he hopes that his Eagles side can take another giant step closer to safety against Leicester City this afternoon.

Despite fielding the same starting XI for the games against Southampton and Arsenal, Allardyce has been handed a boost by being able to select Fraizer Campbell on the bench after his injury lay-off, while Martin Kelly makes his 100th Premier League appearance.

Craig Shakespeare meanwhile has made two changes to the Foxes side that lost 1-0 to Atletico Madrid in their Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday night.

With one eye on the second leg the King Power Stadium in three days’ time, Shinji Okazaki and Danny Drinkwater have been dropped to the bench, with Leonardo Ulloa and Andy King installed in their places.

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Sakho, Kelly, Schlupp, Cabaye, Milivojevic, Zaha, Puncheon, Townsend, C. Benteke. Subs: Speroni, Van Aanholt, Delaney, Flamini, McArthur, Sako, Campbell.

Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Huth, Benalouane, Fuchs, Mahrez, King, Ndidi, Albrighton, Ulloa, Vardy. Subs: Zieler, Chilwell, Amartey, Drinkwater, Gray, Okazaki, Musa.
