The defence remains hit by injuries, as centre-back James Tomkins continues his spell out after surgery on a fractured eye socket, while Mamadou Sakho also remains in the treatment room alongside Nathan Ferguson.
Gary Cahill was fit to make the bench for the Manchester City game last time out though, after he was absent from the previous match due to a knock.
Further up the pitch, Scottish midfielder James McCarthur will remain out of action with a calf injury, while his compatriot James McCarthy has struggled for starting opportunities as Jairo Riedewald and Luka Milivojevic have built a solid pairing in the middle of the pitch.
Striker Connor Wickham also remains out, having only made the bench three times in the Premier League this season due to two lengthy spells on the sidelines.
The front two will be supported by the attacking threat of 22-year-old attacking midfielder Ebere Eze, who has impressed in his first season in the top flight following a move from Queens Park Rangers in the summer.
He scored his second Premier League goal in the reverse fixture of this encounter in January, as he netted an eye-catching solo goal to double the Eagles' lead, and they went on to win 2-0.
Crystal Palace possible starting XI: Guaita; Ward, Dann, Kouyate, Mitchell; Townsend, Riedewald, Milivojevic, Eze; Zaha, Benteke
