Sam Allardyce has admitted there could be changes for tomorrow evening’s match against Palace at Selhurst Park.

He explained at his morning press conference there are no fresh injury worries but said: ”We have only a few niggles from Saturday’s game.

“We don’t consider they will cause us any difficulties in terms of the selection process, but having three games in a week, it may be about asking other squad players to step in and do a job on Tuesday or on Saturday.

“I have to do almost a team-and-a-half’s thinking. How well have the lads recovered from Saturday? Will some of the squad lads do a better job on Tuesday because they are so much fresher and ready to go? That’s the debate we have to have as a staff and see where we go from there.

“I’ll pick a team following those discussions and see how we go from there.”
