Hodgson Announces Handful of Injuries to Palace Squad Pre-West Ham

8 February 2019

Roy Hodgson has today provided team news ahead of Crystal Palace's clash with West Ham United, stating that several members of the Eagles' squad will be unavailable for selection tomorrow.

He stated that overall five players are unavailable due to injury, with three of them having been in contention to play last week.

He said, "Cheikhou Kouyate still hasn't recovered so he's not available. Julian Speroni unfortunately picked up a minor injury a few days ago so he's not up for selection. Pape Souare has had a long term injury as has Connor Wickham. The other injury news unfortunately for us is James Tomkins, who's been struggling with a calf strain."

Hodgson said that he had hoped Tomkins would recover in time to feature against his former club but remarked that the Palace man is not ready to play despite the club's best efforts.

To see how Hodgson's side fare tomorrow, make sure to buy your ticket now - there is only a handful remaining.
