    Crystal Palace are without Wayne Hennessey and James McCarthy, who were both injured on international duty.

    Michy Batshuayi returns after being ineligible to face Chelsea, while Gary Cahill, Patrick van Aanholt, Jeffrey Schlupp and James Tomkins could play.

    Brighton pair Tariq Lamptey and Davy Propper are back in training after respective hamstring and Achilles problems and will be assessed.

    Aaron Connolly is another fitness doubt due to wrist and neck injuries.

    Alireza Jahanbakhsh is unlikely to feature because of a thigh problem but Swiss forward Andi Zeqiri, who joined the club earlier this month, is under consideration.
