WATCH LIVE: First-team quartet start for Palace U23s

16 December 2020

Four first-team players start for a strong Palace Under-23s side this afternoon as they welcome Newcastle United U23s to south London (13:00 GMT).

James Tomkins, who made his 100th Premier League appearance for Palace at the weekend, is alongside Tyrick Mitchell in defence, while Jairo Riedewald and James McCarthy line-up in central midfield, and you can see how they fare live via Palace TV.

The U23s make eight changes in total from their defeat against Fulham in early December, recalling Oliver Webber in goal, James Taylor in defence and Sion Spence in midfield. Brandon Pierrick, who appeared off the bench v Fulham, rejoins the attack.

Rob Street leads the line once again supported by leading goalscorer Scott Banks, with Sam Woods the other player to remain.

Palace: Webber, Taylor, Tomkins, Woods, Mitchell, McCarthy, Riedewald, Banks, Spence, Pierrick, Street.

Subs: Jacob Russell, Watson, Jude Russell, M.Boateng, Matthews.
