Roy Hodgson - Palace Have Plenty of Fit Attacking Options

8 November 2018

Roy Hodgson has spoken ahead of Crystal Palace's home game against Tottenham Hotspur this Saturday in his weekly press conference, discussing the front line available among his Eagles side.

Hodgson first said that he is able to call upon the same squad that faced Chelsea last Sunday again this weekend. 

He explained that, "There's nothing special to report at the moment, though we’ve got one more training session left of course. We haven’t recovered any injured players but then we haven’t lost anybody either at this moment in time."

The manager then made it clear that this means he has a replete set of options going forward and is not unhappy about his choices for facing Spurs.

"We have Benteke injured but he'll soon be back. We have [Alexander] Sørloth, we have [Jordan] Ayew, we have Wilf [Zaha], and we have Andros Townsend so we have forwards at the club. 

"I can't in any way criticise or complain about what the players are trying to do either in training or in matches and I'm sure that they [goals] will come when the ball goes in for us. But, as I say, we've scored three in the last two games against Arsenal and Chelsea away."

Palace face Spurs this Saturday for a 17.30 kick-off, which will be their third consecutive London derby in the league.
