Team News: Palace Unchanged For Watford Clash

21 April 2018

Roy Hodgson has named an unchanged team for today’s visit to Vicarage Road to take on Watford, as he keeps faith in the same players that beat Brighton and Hove Albion seven days ago.

Hodgson has named the same starting XI as well as a strong bench, including Christian Benteke and Alexander Sørloth should the Eagles need some firepower as the game progresses.
