For the hosts, Christian Benteke returns to the matchday squad after seven weeks out with a knee issue but is not deemed fit enough to play from the off as Roy Hodgson opts to make one change from the loss to Tottenham Hotspur last time out.
James McArthur comes in to replace Timothy Fosu-Mensah, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been included despite some back trouble picked up during England duty as Palace try to drag themselves off the bottom of the table.
