Christian Benteke is poised for an early return to action having been sidelined since September because of injury.
The Crystal Palace striker suffered knee ligament damage at Manchester City in game week six leaving the Eagles without a recognised forward following the departure of Loic Remy and Fraizer Campbell while Connor Wickham is still recovering from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. The news follows quickly on from the return of Wilfried Zaha who helped orchestrate his sides first win on Saturday, a victory which Roy Hodgson hopes can be used as a platform to kickstart their season. Although the trip to Newcastle will come too soon, Benteke is targeting a return within a "few weeks" and could feature before the next international break. "The rehab is going really well and I'm feeling really happy with the way that my ligament is healing. I really want to help the team and do well this year to make sure I'm in the [World Cup] squad."
