The duo step up from bench duties against Chelsea a week ago, replacing Martin Kelly and Alexander Sørloth, with Sakho making his first start since December’s 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.

Further reinforcements see fit-again Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Yohan Cabaye take their places amongst the substitutes should Hodgson need them.

Huddersfield meanwhile make one change from last weekend’s goalless draw against Swansea City, with Collin Quaner replacing Rajiv van la Parra on the wing, plus David Wagner is able to call upon the services of Elias Kachunga who is named on the bench after being out since December with a knee injury.

Huddersfield: Lossl, Haderjonaj, Jorgensen, Schindler, Malone, Hogg, Mooy, Ince, Prichard, Quaner, Mounie. Subs: Coleman, Smith, Billing, Lowe, Van La Parra, Kachunga, Depoitre.

Palace: Hennessey, Wan-Bissaka, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt, Townsend, Milivojevic, McArthur, Schlupp, Zaha, Benteke. Subs: Cavalieri, Fosu-Mensah, Kelly, Riedewald, Cabaye, Loftus-Cheek, Lee.
