Keeper decision for Hodgson
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has keepers Vicente Guaita and Wayne Hennessey back available for Wednesday's game at Southampton.
Hodgson must decide who out of Hennessey, Guaita and veteran Julian Speroni starts at St Mary's as all three are in contention, while Bakary Sako has re-signed on loan and will hope to make his debut.
Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham are both battling to start up front and Hodgson admits he has some selection dilemmas for the clash.
"I was prepared to play (Connor) in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Tottenham Hotspur, so if I'm prepared to do that there'd be no reason why I couldn't use him also in Premier League games," said the Palace boss.
"The same goes for Christian Benteke. He played for the last 20-odd minutes of the game (against Spurs) and came through that very well."
The two sides are locked together on 22 points in the table, with Palace one position ahead in 16th due to a better goal difference.
