Team News: Cabaye Back To Face Arsenal

20 January 2018

Yohan Cabaye has returned to the Crystal Palace line-up for today’s game at Arsenal, in the only change to Roy Hodgson’s team that beat Burnley last week.

The Frenchman missed that game through fatigue after a gruelling couple of months, but has been deemed ready for the game at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon and takes Jairo Riedewald’s spot in the starting XI.
