C Palace v Tottenham preview

Winger Bolasie has departed to play for DR Congo at the Africa Cup of Nations while midfielder Jedinak is away at the Asia Cup with Australia.

Striker Marouane Chamakh has missed the last four league matches with a hamstring injury but could return, while midfielder James McArthur is also expected to be fit.

Tottenham will still be without both Ryan Mason and Erik Lamela for Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace.

Mason had only recently returned from an ankle injury before picking up a hamstring problem early on in the 5-3 victory over Chelsea and the 23-year-old remains sidelined.

Club-record signing Lamela is also out due to a calf issue whilst Emmanuel Adebayor is still not considered fit enough to be in contention for a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
