Confirmed Palace team news: No Wilfried Zaha as Max Meyer and Jordan Ayew

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has made one change for the London derby with Tottenham this evening (Saturday), with Wilfried Zaha missing out for the Eagles.

The Palace talisman, who turns 26 today (Saturday) is not involved in the matchday squad on his birthday.

Jordan Ayew has been brought into the starting line-up in his place for the game against Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

That is the only change from the side that started the Eagles’ 3-1 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, with Max Meyer continuing in midfield for Palace.

As expected, Harry Kane leads the line for Spurs, with Dele Alli also included for the visitors.

Juan Foyth starts in defence for Pochettino’s men, who went into the day in fourth place in the Premier League, but Christian Eriksen is on the bench for the visitors.
