Team News: Zaha One of Three Changes

15 September 2018

Wilfried Zaha has been named in the Crystal Palace side to take on Huddersfield Town as one of three changes to Roy Hodgson’s starting XI.

The attacker missed the 2-0 defeat to Southampton a fortnight ago because of a slight groin issue, but that has cleared up to allow him to feature at the John Smith’s Stadium, replacing the injured Christian Benteke.

Also back from injury is James Tomkins who missed two games with a calf complaint, and he comes in for Martin Kelly at the heart of defence, while Cheikhou Kouyaté is handed his first Premier League start for the club with Jeffrey Schlupp dropping out.

Huddersfield meanwhile have made one change from their side that drew 1-1 with Everton before the international break, with Elias Kachunga replacing Adama Diakhaby on the wing as David Wagner sticks with the 5-4-1 formation from Goodison Park.
