Team News: Palace Unchanged For Toon Trip

21 October 2017

Roy Hodgson has named an unchanged side for today's game against Newcastle United, as he keeps faith in the same 11 players that beat Chelsea last week.

Despite having Ruben Loftus-Cheek available again after he missed the win against the Blues due to them being his parent club, the Eagles boss has resisted against making any changes, meaning Julian Speroni continues in goal with the fit-again Wayne Hennessey on the bench.

It is the same for Rafael Benitez who has also named an unchanged line-up from the side that drew 2-2 with Southampton last weekend. However, ex-Eagle Dwight Gayle isn’t included in the matchday squad due to a calf injury, meaning Aleksandar Mitrovic takes his spot on the bench.

Newcastle: Elliot, Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Manquillo, Richie, Hayden, Shelvey, Atsu, Perez, Joselu. Subs: Darlow, Gamez, Clark, Diame, Merino, Murphy, Mitrovic

Palace: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Sakho, Van Aanholt, McArthur, Cabaye, Milivojevic, Schlupp, Townsend, Zaha. Subs: Hennessey, Riedewald, Fosu-Mensah, Tomkins, Puncheon, Loftus-Cheek, Sako.
