Crystal Palace fans and fantasy owners will be pleased to know another attacking option is back, although Ruben Loftus-Cheek might be ruled out.
The Chelsea loanee suffered a back injury during the international break and will be a late decision ahead of Crystal Palace's match with Everton today. However, Christian Benteke will be a welcome sight on the Palace bench after missing the last two months with a knee injury. Said manager Roy Hodgson: "We are assessing Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has a back spasm, but he hasn’t trained today and we probably won’t know until tomorrow or even on Saturday...We hope Christian can play a big part for us now going forward but it must be remembered he hasn’t played for seven weeks but it’s good because he is physically fit to play and I certainly don’t see it as a risk playing him."
