Crystal Palace will check on the fitness of Wilfried Zaha and Aaron Wan-Bissaka ahead of the visit of Huddersfield.
Zaha, who made a 6,400-mile round trip to the Ivory Coast despite carrying an injury, and Wan-Bissaka have been receiving treatment on hamstring injuries but Palace are hopeful both will be available.
Bakary Sako is also available so Mamadou Sakho is the only definite absentee.

Huddersfield manager Jan Siewert, whose side could be relegated on Saturday, confirmed Christopher Schindler and Jonathan Hogg are both back in contention for the trip to Selhurst Park.
Skipper Schindler sat out the recent defeat at West Ham due to illness, while a rib injury sidelined Hogg for the last two matches.
Fellow midfielder Danny Williams (knee) could make his first appearance since December, but Laurent Depoitre (foot), Isaac Mbenza (calf), Adama Diakhaby (hamstring) and Demeaco Duhaney (hip) remain unavailable.
- Since losing 3-0 to Huddersfield Town on the opening weekend of the 2017-18 season, Crystal Palace have won their last three games against the Terriers in all competitions without conceding a goal.
- Huddersfield have never registered consecutive away league victories against Crystal Palace, although they are unbeaten there in the top flight (P3 W2 D1 L0).
- The home side have never scored a goal in top-flight fixtures between Crystal Palace and Huddersfield - all 12 goals have been scored by the away side in seven previous meetings.
- Since scoring three times against Crystal Palace in their first away Premier League game, Huddersfield have scored just 20 away league goals in 33 games - although 15 per cent of those goals came in their last away match, a 3-4 defeat to West Ham United.
- Only Huddersfield have won fewer points (8) and scored fewer goals (7) in home Premier League games than Crystal Palace this season (13 points, 11 goals).
- Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park has seen fewer league goals scored than any other Premier League ground this season (28), with Manchester United the only side to score more than twice in a game there so far this season (3).
- Despite only making his Premier League debut on February 2nd, Karlan Grant is Huddersfield Town's joint-top league scorer this season with three goals.
- Luka Milivojevic has scored 45 per cent of Crystal Palace's home Premier League goals this season (5/11). The Serbian is the only player to score more than once at Selhurst Park for the Eagles this term.
- Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has won three games in all competitions against Huddersfield as Eagles boss - only against Leicester (4) has he won more with Palace.
- Huddersfield boss Siewert could become the first permanent Premier League manager to lose his first five away matches in the competition since Ole Gunnar Solskjær in 2013-14, when the Norwegian was Cardiff City manager.
This is a dangerous game for Palace, who are another team not yet clear from the relegation fight. Defeat to Brighton has cranked the pressure on this match with Huddersfield, which would have been viewed as a gimme. But Huddersfield are dangerous, dangerous side. They have nothing to play for and are really going for it. Palace need to win this game and I think they will just have enough, but I wouldn't be shocked if Huddersfield caused an upset, especially if the hosts turn up with the wrong attitude.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1
