Team News: Van Aanholt To Make Debut

31 January 2017

Patrick van Aanholt will make his Crystal Palace debut this evening at Bournemouth, and is one of two alterations to the side that lost 1-0 to Everton in their last league meeting.

The left-sided player will feature as a left wing-back tonight against the Cherries, replacing fellow January signing Jeffrey Schlupp as the Eagles once again line up with three at the back.

The other change to the team that started their last Premier League match sees Wilfried Zaha return to the team following the Africa Cup of Nations, and he replaces Loic Remy, and injury victims Julian Speroni and Fraizer Campbell return to the bench.

Meanwhile, Eddie Howe has made three changes to his side after their 2-2 draw with Watford last time out, with Benik Afobe replacing Callum Wilson up front.

Captain Simon Francis is recalled after suspension and comes in for Tyrone Mings, and Brad Smith is preferred to Charlie Daniels who isn’t included in the matchday squad.

Bournemouth: Boruc, A. Smith, Cook, Francis, B. Smith, Surman, Wilshere, Stanislas, King, Fraser, Afobe. Subs: Allsop, Mings, Pugh, Gosling, Arter, Ibe, Wilson.

Palace: Hennessey, Tomkins, Delaney, Dann, Ward, Cabaye, Puncheon, van Aanholt, Zaha, McArthur, C. Benteke. Subs: Speroni, Fryers, Ledley, Flamini, Townsend, Remy, Campbell.
