Palace have confirmed that Max Meyer, Jordan Ayew, Julian Speroni and the returning Scott Dann and Connor Wickham will all be included in their squad to take on Dulwich Hamlet on Thursday.
Roy Hodgson has named a strong selection for the fundraising friendly against the National League South side, with first-teamers Joel Ward, Martin Kelly, Jairo Riedewald, Jason Puncheon, Jonny Williams and Sullay Kaikai also included as the Palace boss aims to provide some extra minutes for his players.

Dann could see his first action in 2018 as he steps up his recovering from the knee injury sustained on New Years’ Eve, while Wickham and Speroni could also feature for the first time since pre-season.
Tickets are still available for the 7pm kick-off, which takes place at Dulwich’s temporary ground of Imperial Fields – home of Tooting and Mitcham FC. They are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for concessions, and can be purchased online.
All proceeds from the game will be going to help Dulwich with their well-publicised fight for survival during their legal battle with property developers, who have forced them to leave their Champion Hill home.
Full Palace squad: Speroni, Tupper, Ward, Mitchell, Dann, Kelly, O’Dwyer, Tavares, Riedewald, Williams, Puncheon, Meyer, Flanagan, Kaikai, Ayew, Wickham, Daly.
