Team News: Schlupp Gets First Start

21 January 2017

Jeffrey Schlupp will make his first start for Palace this afternoon against Everton at Selhurst Park, as Sam Allardyce shuffles his pack with two changes to the side that lost to West Ham United last weekend.

The new signing from Leicester starts alongside Loic Remy as Allardyce looks to set his team up in a 3-5-2 system, with Schlupp and Ward in the wing-back positions, and the Frenchman is paired alongside Christian Benteke in attack.

Everton unsurprisingly are unchanged from their 4-0 win over Manchester City six days ago.

Palace: Hennessey, Tomkins, Dann, Delaney, Ward, Cabaye, Puncheon, McArthur, Schlupp, Remy, C. Benteke. Subs: Speroni, Kelly, Flamini, Ledley, Lee, Townsend, Kaikai.

Everton: Robles, Holgate, Funes Mori, Williams, Coleman, Davies, Barry, Barkley, Mirallas, Lukaku. Subs: Stekelenberg, Jagielka, Oviedo, McCarthy, Schneiderlin, Lookman, Valencia.
