25 March 2019

Crystal Palace will face Sheffield United this afternoon at 1pm at Selhurst Park in a game that sees James Daly play for the Eagles after a long time suffering with injury during a loan spell at Kingstonian.

Joining him on the Selhurst turf will be first-team substitute Sam Woods, recent signing Lucas Perri and internationals Nikola Tavares and Kian Flanagan. Luke Dreher also makes the first XI, having not started for the Eagles for months following a lengthy spell injured.

Also a notable inclusion is Jacob Mensah, who signed lately from Ramsgate and today makes the bench for Richard Shaw's side. 

Palace: Perri, D.Boateng, Woods, Tavares, Brown, Dreher, M.Boateng, Flanagan, Lumeka, Pierrick, Daly.

Subs: Tupper, Mensah, McGregor, Aveiro, Street.
