Team News: Kouyate Replaces Schlupp for Cardiff Clash

26 December 2018

Crystal Palace face Cardiff City today at 15.00 and Roy Hodgson has selected his team to build on the Eagles' recent success against Manchester City as his side look to win three consecutive games.

It remains the same as the lineup that started against City last Saturday bar one change as the formerly injured Cheikhou Kouyate replaces goalscorer Jeffrey Schlupp in midfield.

Fans will be pleased to see forward Connor Wickham make the bench while shot-stopper Wayne Hennessey remains absent from the squad with a slight injury, in his place remains Vicente Guaita.
