Reports are beginning to circulate that Yohan Cabaye has been injured while on international duty.
The precise nature or indeed the extent of the problem are yet to be confirmed, but several respected media outlets, plus the official fantasy Premier League game, have the Palace playmaker side-lined due to a knee problem. Cabaye made his first league start of the season on Saturday, and despite missing a first half penalty, his appearance in the Eagles line-up provided a massive boost following losses in their two opening matches. Alan Pardew has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bolster his squad and following hot on the heels of record signing Christian Benteke, Loic Remy has arrived from Chelsea. However, Pardew may now be in the market for a new midfielder with Cabaye POTENTIALLY missing for several weeks. Jack Wilshere has been linked after Arsenal agreed to allow the injury-plagued England international to leave on-loan. Aug 31 - 7:05 AM

Crystal Palace has been handed a massive fitness boost ahead of its biggest game of the season in the FA Cup final this weekend.

Both Connor Wickham and Yohan Cabaye trained with the club yesterday for the first time since picking up a pair of injuries that caused them to miss the season finale against Southampton on Sunday. Wickham has overcome an ankle injury but could face competition to start with Dwight Gayle in the mix, but Cabaye will surely be in the lineup if he has fully overcome a rib injury. The news comes after Wilfried Zaha passed himself fit earlier this week to face his former side in Manchester United in the final at Wembley Stadium with a spot in next year's Europa League on the line.
May 17 - 4:13 PM

Crystal Palace continued to limp their way to the finish line with a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United.

The Eagles, who had designs on a Europa League spot during the first half of the season, have won just once since a week before Christmas in league play. They looked the better bet to score in the first half today, with Yannick Bolasie causing problems for the Magpies, but could not take advantage of their possession. Yohan Cabaye had a shot from short range but it was from a narrow angle and was saved by Karl Darlow. The two would lock horns again in the second half when it looked as though Palace were set to equalize with a penalty. They had converted every penalty they were given this season, but Cabaye's effort was poor and Darlow made the stop. At this point, the Eagles should feel fortunate the season is not a couple of games longer, or they would be staring at one of the most disastrous collapses in league history. Certainly, changes are in order this summer.

Crystal Palace could be missing a host of players on Saturday with Emmanuel Adebayor, Yohan Cabaye, Mile Jedinak and Connor Wickham all facing a late fitness test.

Cabaye has been part of the French squad this week but was an unused substitute in both internationals against the Netherlands and Russia and Alan Pardew admitted: "We're not sure if he’s going to make it." Connor Wickham has a chance after the striker completed a warm up with the squad on Thursday. James McArthur "is progressing" but is still some way off. Emmanuel Adebayor "has a knock, so we're waiting on him" and Mile Jedinak will be assessed after he tweaked his hamstring playing for Australia. Marouane Chamakh (groin) is already ruled out.
Mar 31 - 12:30 PM

Alan Pardew played down any fears of an injury recurrence for Yohan Cabaye after the Frenchman was replaced with twenty-minutes still remaining at the Liberty on Saturday.

Cabaye passed a late test having limped away from Selhurst Park on crutches last weekend, but the Eagles boss was quick to confirm the midfielder had not suffered another injury: "He's fine," Pardew said. "He was struggling a little bit with his fitness because he hadn't worked ahead of the game. He's had a sore ankle as we know and was touch and go but he was terrific." Palace ended a run of five consecutive Premier League defeats at Swansea, but the draw still leaves them without a win in eight, a run which has saw them slide alarmingly into the bottom half. However, following the arrival Emmanuel Adebayor, Palace hope that a new attacking impetus will be enough to help the Eagles soar back-up the league table.
Feb 8 - 7:42 AM

Amid a series of injury announcements on Thursday, Yohan Cabaye was the only piece of good news as the midfielder has been cleared to return for the weekend against Swansea City.

The Frenchman missed the club's 2-1 loss to Bournemouth on Tuesday with an ankle injury, but has given the all-clear to return. Joe Ledley is also hopeful to return for the Swansea trip after also missing out in the midweek fixture. This comes as good news for Palace, who just lost James McArthur and Jason Puncheon to long-term injuries. Expect both Cabaye and Ledley to come back into the starting lineup this week with the midfield short on players. It's always a benefit to have Cabaye in any lineup considering he is the club's penalty-taker and top scorer this season with Wilfried Zaha; however, Cabaye will have many more defensive responsibilities without McArthur in midfield.
Feb 4 - 10:24 AM

Yohan Cabaye will face a late fitness test after limping away from Selhurst Park on Saturday. But Joe Ledley is expected to miss out after he was forced off at half-time during the cup win over Stoke City.

Alan Pardew was quick to allay any long-term injury fears regarding the French playmaker after Cabaye was spotted leaving the stadium on crutches. Tests on Sunday revealed that the damage is not as bad as originally thought: "We just hope it's a swelling, because with ankles sometimes the swelling can go down real quick, it just depends really." Joe Ledley won’t be involved although the midfielder should be back on Saturday. Emmanuel Adebayor is in line for his first start after Dwight Gayle tweaked his hamstring in training and Connor Wickham received a three-match retrospective ban for his elbow on Jan Vertonghen.
Feb 2 - 6:22 AM

Crystal Palace will be glad to see leading scorer Yohan Cabaye return to the lineup to face Southampton in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Cabaye missed the 3-0 beatdown at the hands of Chelsea last weekend after earning his fifth yellow card in the final game of 2015, just before the suspension quota rose to 10 yellow cards. But Cabaye returns in the hope that the Eagles can break their scoring duck, having gone goalless in each of the past three Premier League matches. But most eyes will surely be on Tuesday's looming matchup with Manchester City, even though Alan Pardew chose to go with a strong lineup that features most of the club's regular starters outside of Jordon Mutch and Joe Ledley.
Jan 9 - 10:08 AM

After picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Swansea City, Yohan Cabaye will be among five major absentees to face Chelsea on Saturday.

Crystal Palace will once again be without its top two scorers as Yannick Bolasie has also been ruled out for another week due to injury. Bakary Sako is another winger that will be missing after missing the past month with a hamstring injury. Palace will be even thinner up top at the forward position with Dwight Gayle and Connor Wickham injured and Patrick Bamford committing to leaving his loan at the club, although a formal club announcement has yet to be made. Without the group, Jordon Mutch, Lee Chung-yong, Frazier Campbell and Marouane Chamakah come into contention.
Jan 1 - 4:43 PM

Crystal Palace hit a bump in the road on their journey to try and crack the top four but still managed to come away with a point in a 0-0 draw with Swansea City.

Without Yannick Bolasie, the Eagles attack was noticeably lacking the edge that has seen them thrive in recent weeks. It was a battle of the keepers in this one to keep the match goalless. Wayne Hennessey stopped three shots to preserve a point for Palace. They had two good chances for a winner. A header by Brede Hangeland and a good open chance for Patrick Bamford, but both attempts were thwarted by Lukasz Fabianski. Yohan Cabaye picked up his fifth yellow card just one match before he would have cleared the way to need 10 bookings for a ban, and will be suspended for the upcoming match with Chelsea.

Crystal Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye came on as a substitute at half-time but could not prove to be the difference in a 0-0 draw with Bournemouth.

The point moved Crystal Palace into fifth in the table as the club recorded its second clean sheet in the last three weeks. The Eagles were boosted by the return of Cabaye, the club's leading goalscorer, who missed last week's match with Stoke City due to a heel injury. But Yannick Bolasie looks set for an extended spell on the sidelines as Palace fear a long-term injury layoff for the winger. In his place, Jordon Mutch earned only his second start of the season before being replaced by Cabaye at the break. With Connor Wickham injured, Frazier Campbell made the start up top while Mile Jedinak returned from injury to feature as a second-half sub.

Crystal Palace will be waiting on the status of its top two leading goalscorers in Yohan Cabaye and Yannick Bolasie for the Boxing Day clash with Bournemouth.

Cabaye missed Week 17 against Stoke City with a heel injury that has continued to plague him throughout the week, with manager Alan Pardew giving him a 50 percent chance to be fit for Saturday. Without Cabaye, Pardew opted to go with Joe Ledley in central midfield, although Mile Jedinak could also fill in after being passed fit after an ankle injury ruled him out of the past two weeks. Meanwhile, Yannick Bolasie remains a doubt for the weekend after picking up a knock against Stoke City. If Bolasie can't go, Lee Chung-yong scored his first Premier League goal against Stoke City last week and could get the start.

Yohan Cabaye will be assessed ahead of the Boxing Day clash against AFC Bournemouth after missing the win over Stoke City because of injury.

Cabaye was a noticeable absentee from the Crystal Palace team sheet at The Britannia when the sides were announced; the 29-year-old had picked up a heel injury in training. Supporters may have feared the worst as Mark Hughes’ men were coming off back of consecutive home wins over Chelsea and Man City. The French playmaker has been brilliant since his summer arrival from Paris Saint-Germain, a driving force in taking Palace up-to joint fourth in the league. But Alan Pardew suggested post-match that the omission of Cabaye was a blessing as his replacement - Joe Ledley - was able to breakdown the play. "He won tackles, won headers and dug in" to provide the platform for an excellent win.

Yohan Cabaye scored Crystal Palace's only goal in their 1-0 win over Southampton.

This was quite the statement match for Palace, who now find themselves in sixth place in the table. They've played well this season and found a way to win today despite not totally dominating the match. Southampton enjoyed 57% possession and had a total of 15 shots, but none were great chances and Palace took home the three points. The Saints have fallen to 12th with the loss.

Alan Pardew is said to be "sweating," on a number of players ahead of this weekends’ game against Man United.

The Eagles boss was interviewed post-match on Wednesday after his side were unceremoniously dumped out of the Capital One Cup at The Etihad. Palace made a number of enforced changes for the midweek cup clash as Yohan Cabaye [knock], Jason Puncheon [illness] and James McArthur [personal] were all ruled out. While Pardew "will keep his fingers crossed," for Pape Souare after the full-back missed his second successive game. Connor Wickham and Marouane Chamakh are training "but they won't make Saturday for sure" and Yannick Bolasie will be assessed. The winger required stitches in a gaping head wound following a clash with Zabaleta – but should be OK.
