Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Crystal Palace could line up for Sunday's Premier League fixture with Aston Villa.

Roy Hodgson will consider making several changes to his Crystal Palace starting lineup after Tuesday's 3-1 defeat at Southampton.

While the veteran boss must handle as many as 11 first-team players being out of contract in the summer, the Eagles will want to earn as much prize money as possible from their final position in the Premier League standings.

Jeffrey Schlupp, Michy Batshuayi and Jean-Philippe Mateta were used off the substitutes' bench at St Mary's, but other players may come back into contention for Sunday's fixture at Selhurst Park.

Tyrick Mitchell will keep his place at left-back with Patrick van Aanholt unavailable due to personal reasons, while James McCarthy would bring fresh legs to the midfield.

Andros Townsend's future remains up in the air, but the long-serving winger may be trusted on the right flank as a replacement for Jordan Ayew.

On the back of five goals in eight appearances, Christian Benteke will keep his place in attack for the meeting with his former club.

James Tomkins has recently featured for the Under-23s as part of his comeback from injury, but the defender may be kept in reserve for this contest.

Although James McArthur is also making progress, Mamadou Sakho and Connor Wickham remain sidelined and are unlikely to return before the end of the season.

Crystal Palace possible starting XI: Guaita; Ward, Kouyate, Dann, Mitchell; Eze, Milivojevic, Riedeweld; Townsend, Benteke, Zaha
