Team News: Mac Back To Face Leicester

16 December 2017

After scoring the winner against Watford in midweek, James McArthur has been recalled to the Crystal Palace squad for today's game against Leicester City.

The Scot has been installed into the centre of midfield with Luka Milivojevic unavailable through suspension, and that is one of two changes made by Roy Hodgson from Tuesday night, with Martin Kelly replacing the injured Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
