Crystal Palace have been dealt a double injury blow following the news that Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon will not play again this season.
Speaking after the come from behind win over Southampton, Roy Hodgson confirmed that Dann and Puncheon will meet with a specialist to determine the best course of action. The pair have been pencilled in for surgery once the swelling subsides. "It's very bad news," he said. "Both have cruciate knee ligament injuries – Scott has got a meniscus injury to his anterior cruciate and Jason has got a rupture in his posterior cruciate." While the loss of Puncheon can be absorbed [only 6 PL starts in 2017/18], plus Palace are well catered for in midfield, the injury to Dann will be particularly hard to take given that Mamadou Sakho [calf] is long-term and Joel Ward [groin] hasn’t featured in over a month. Hodgson admitted he may be forced to strengthen his squad defensively in January window. "It’s not an area up until now we had contemplated improving [until now]." Jan 3 - 4:26 AM
