Dimitar Berbatov and Darren Bent both start up front for Fulham's match against Crystal Palace, who welcome Dwight Gayle back into the first XI.

Dimitar Berbatov and Darren Bent have both been included in the Fulham starting lineup for tonight's match against Crystal Palace.

Bent returns to the first XI having come off the bench to score the only goal of the game in Fulham's 1-0 win over Stoke City earlier this month.

The striker is one of four changes made by Martin Jol, who also brings in Maarten Stekelenburg for his first appearance in more than two months. Kieran Richardson and Scott Parker also return to the starting lineup.

Palace, meanwhile, welcome Yannick Bolasie back from injury for his first start of the season, while Dwight Gayle also earns a starting place having come on to score against Liverpool in his last outing.

Cameron Jerome, Jimmy Kebe and Marouane Chamakh are the men who make way for Bolasie, Gayle and Jose Campana as the Eagles look for their first win in five matches.

Crystal Palace: Speroni; Ward, Mariappa, Delaney, Moxey; O'Keefe, Jedinak, Campana, Puncheon, Bolasie; Gayle
Subs: Price, Gabbidon, Dikgacoi, Kebe, Thomas, Phillips, Chamakh

Fulham: Stekelenburg; Riether, Senderos, Hangeland, Richardson; Parker, Sidwell, Kasami, Ruiz; Berbatov, Bent
Subs: Stockdale, Amorebieta, Zverotic, Karagounis, Boateng, Duff, Rodallega
