Hodgson confirms Sakho absence
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson confirms defender Mamadou Sakho will miss Wednesday's game against Manchester United.
The Frenchman played for the Eagles last weekend as Palace cruised past Leicester City 4-1.
However, Sakho was forced off during the 77th minute and he was last seen limping off the pitch as Scott Dann replaced him.
Hodgson admits he does not know when the centre-back will return but he has confirmed the United game will come too soon.
He told the club's official website: "We don't know yet, he's being assessed. We have to wait and see what the diagnosis is. But he won't be playing tomorrow, that I can obviously state. I can't yet comment on how serious or minor the injury is."
