Wan-Bissaka And Kelly To Miss Leicester Trip

22 February 2019

Roy Hodgson has revealed that Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Martin Kelly will miss the Eagles' trip to Leicester City through injury.

Both defenders have slight problems picked up recently which will keep them from competing in Saturday's late kick off at the King Power Stadium

Speaking during his pre-match press conference, Hodgson confirmed a "hamstring problem" would stop Wan-Bissaka from participating, whilst Kelly picked up "a muscle strain" in last weekend's win against Doncaster Rovers.

"We won't have Aaron Wan-Bissaka, he's still recovering from the hamstring problem that he's been suffering from and we won't have Martin Kelly, who picked up a slight muscle strain in the game against Doncaster," he said. "We don't think it's a long-term injury, but unfortunately he's not recovered from that [in time]."

"They're the two injury problems we have."

Hodgson will, however, be handed a boost by Wilfried Zaha's return from suspension.
