Team News: Palace and West Brom Unchanged

4 March 2017

Having enjoyed success against Middlesbrough seven days ago, Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce has named an unchanged side for today’s game against West Bromwich Albion.

The Palace boss has kept faith in the same starting XI that claimed his first home win as Eagles gaffer last time out, with Jason Puncheon once again captaining the side in the absence of Scott Dann, but there is a return on the bench for the fit-again Bakary Sako.

Albion meanwhile have also decided against making any changes to their line-up after they beat Bournemouth 2-1 seven days ago at The Hawthorns.

Tony Pulis has kept faith with his side, with Matty Phillips not being deemed fit for a place in the matchday squad after struggling with a hamstring injury.

West Bromwich Albion: Foster, Dawson, McAuley, Evans, Nyom, Livermore, Fletcher, Morrison, Brunt, Chadli, Rondon. Subs: Myhill, Wilson, Olsson, Yacob, McClean, Leko, Robson-Kanu.

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Tomkins, Sakho, van Aanholt, Milivojevic, Cabaye, Puncheon, Zaha, Townsend, C. Benteke. Subs: Speroni, Schlupp, Dann, Delaney, McArthur, Sako, Campbell.
