Crystal Palace vs Tottenham: Starting XIs for EPL clash confirmed

Crystal Palace make one change to the XI which started the 4-0 defeat at Newcastle on Saturday, with Jean-Philippe Mateta dropping to the bench and fit-again Jeffrey Schlupp coming into the side.

The hope will surely be Schlupp can offer some counter-attacking speed to a Palace side likely to be pegged back for periods tonight. They’re of course without key men Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise.

Meanwhile, Tottenham welcome back Yves Bissouma from suspension and his replacement against Fulham, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg returns to the substitutes.

Ben Davies also comes in, making a swift return from the knock which kept him out of action on Monday night to replace Destiny Udogie, who was injured in that win over the Cottagers and misses out completely here.

There is also the return of Rodrigo Bentancur to the bench. He has been out since February with an ACL injury. A big moment for him.

Crystal Palace: Johnstone, Ward, Guehi, Andersen, Mitchell, Ayew, Lerma, Doucoure, Hughes, Schlupp, Edouard.

Subs: Matthews, Holding, Franca, Mateta, Clyne, Richards, Ahamada, Riedewald, Rak-Sakyi.

Tottenham: Vicario, Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Davies, Bissouma, Sarr, Kulusevski, Maddison, Son, Richarlison.

Subs: Forster, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Gil, Royal, Dier, lo Celso, Johnson, Bentancur.

Referee: Andrew Madley
