Team News: Hennessey and Tomkins Return

25 November 2017

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has made two changes to his team for today’s game against Stoke City, with Wayne Hennessey and James Tomkins restored to the Eagles’ line-up.

The pair come in for Julian Speroni and Scott Dann, who are on the bench, in the only changes to the side that drew 2-2 with Everton last weekend, as Hodgson aims to get his back to winning ways against the Potters.

It also means that Christian Benteke is once again named as a substitute as he continues his recovery from a knee injury,  while Patrick van Aanholt is also included after coming through his hamstring troubles in recent weeks.
