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. Oct 29 - 6:58 AM

Alan Pardew was gushing in his praise of Yohan Cabaye, but it was Palace’s wide boys once again that proved the difference…

It seems that Alan Pardew is still trying to justify the £12-odd million spent on Yohan Cabaye. It is not necessary. The French International has added the quality, subtlety and composure hoped for – and his late goal took him to the top of their scoring charts (with three). Dwight Gayle has scored more, but all in against lower league division in the Capital One Cup. He started up front, but again failed to make and impact or finish the match. A centre forward of quality still remains on the Palace wish list and would relish the pace and thrust of the his supporting cast. Wilfried Zaha tormented Christ Brunt all afternoon, with Yannick Bolasie – who scored his first home goal for Palace – and Jason Puncheon causing West Brom headaches throughout. Pardew’s stock has never been so high, with talk of him being the next England boss. This time last year he was sat in the bottom three, asking to be given more time at Newcastle. Funny old game.

Yohan Cabaye played a part in both of Crystal Palace's goals as the Eagles were able to penetrate the West Brom defense and win, 1-0.

Wifried Zaha was the difference in this result to day but it was Cabaye who get the fantasy haul, as he is often capable of doing.The two sides were goalless after the first half, a sign that the visiting Baggies were fishing on of their customary 0-1 results, but in the 68th minute Cabaye delivered a fine cross in the final third that Yannick Bolasie was able to head home. Cabaye then sealed the points my converting a penalty chance drawn by Zaha when he was tripped up in the area. The win allows Palace to creep back into the table's top three for the time being.

Yohan Cabaye scored from the penalty spot and Wayne Hennessey kept a clean sheet as Crystal Palace went on the road and picked up a hard-fought victory at Vicarage Road.

Crystal Palace played the role of visitor to perfection. The Eagles conceded possession to their hosts but got forward on the counterattack and eventually got a breakthrough after second half substitute Wilfried Zaha drew a penalty. Yohan Cabaye converted from the spot and Pardew's side were back in the win column after losing consecutive matches over the past two match weeks. Palace persisted with an interchangeable attacking group featuring four attacking midfielders rather than any one recognized center forward.

Crystal Palace ran into a well-composed Tottenham side that did not afford them many chances and the Eagles would suffer their second straight loss, 1-0.

The hot start for Palace seems to be over. After wins in three of their first four, they have now lost three of four, failing to score in the last two. Alan Pardew named a side that had Yannick Bolasie playing up top, which afforded a chance to use Jason Puncehon, Wilfried Zaha and Bacary Sakho all at the same time, but outside of a smash off the bar by Yohan Cabaye near the end of the first half, the idea of a false 9 didn't pay off. They keep to the road next week to face Watford, who they suddenly find themselves level on points in the table with.

Yohan Cabaye has confirmed that he asked French coach Didier Deschamps to be withdrawn at half-time during Fridays’ win over Portugal because he "felt a slight pain around the pubic bone."

Although the severity of the problem is not yet known Cabaye did add "I do not think that it is worrying" although the player will need to be assessed. Cabaye has started all four PL games since joining from PSG and has been a standout performer - scoring one and creating four chances - while his performance at Stamford Bridge in GW4 helped secure a famous victory. Cabaye along with another summer signing Bakary Sako have hit the ground running and the Eagles – for the early part at least – look to have picked up exactly where they left off.

Yohan Cabaye marked his return to the Premier League with a late goal against Norwich.

Crystal Palace were the better team today despite being away from home and they'll feel good about their 3-1 win over Norwich. The other goals for Palace came from Damien Delaney and Wilfried Zaha, who played a good match. Palace seem to be solid this season and they'll likely hover around mid-table for the majority of the campaign, but there is fantasy value to be exploited here.

Crystal Palace are sweating on the fitness of French midfielder Yohan Cabaye who limped out of Saturdays’ draw with Fulham due to a knock.

Cabaye suffered a dead leg during a frantic opening 15 minutes at Craven Cottage and although the 29 year-old was able to hobble his way through the first half he did not emerge for the restart. Alan Pardew remains hopeful that Cabaye will be ready but the Eagles boss can take nothing for granted "He's one we're going to have to look at, to make sure he's OK. I think there's a slender chance he might not be available." The news came just hours after Palace confirmed Julian Speroni will miss around a month because of a finger injury. His absence leaves Wayne Hennessey and Alex McCarthy to fight it out for the goalkeepers jersey at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Crystal Palace take their first loss of the pre-season after being defeated by Union Berlin, 0-2.

Glenn Murray had a couple of opportunities to perhaps give the Eagles the initial advantage, but a header that found the net in the 15th minute was waived off because of a foul in the area. Shortly thereafter, Murray went down in the box, hoping to draw a penalty but it did not come. Marquee signing Yohan Cabaye also looked to have scored at one point, but play was ruled offside. Instead of finding an equalizer it was Berlin who put the match away with a late second goal.

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Yohan Cabaye from PSG for a fee of £10 million…

For all the ‘advanced’ talks, agreements ‘in principal’ and bids ‘accepted’, we all know a transfer is never a done deal until the player is pictured holding up his new team shirt. That’s the law. And Palace have finally got their man, confirming the signing of Yohan Cabaye this morning. Palace paid a club record £10m fee to PSG which could rise to close to £13m with add-ons. The 29-year-old French international has signed a three-deal deal and set his sights on the top eight. He is a proven PL performer who was on the radar of Arsenal and Manchester United in recent seasons and knows manager Alan Pardew well. It was Pardew that paid £19m to take him to Newcastle, where he scored 18 goals in 93 matches. It is a major coup for Palace and there could be more to come, with bids tabled for Charlie Austin and Loic Remy.

Is Crystal Palace’s sensational capture of French international Johan Cabaye from under the noses of London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal a sign of things to come…?

Last month Crystal Palace chairman made a point of saying that if the club wanted to establish themselves as a top ten club they had to sign top ten players. The signing of French international Johan Cabaye from PSG proves this wasn’t just hot air, or a ploy to create demand for season tickets. But is it ambition, or is simply Palace punching above their weight? Leicester City’s signing of Estaban Cambiasso has some parallels, although it could be said the 34-year-old’s career is/was on a downward trajectory. West Ham famously gave Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano their break in Europe, but were never destined to hold on to them very long. What happens next at Palace is key. Fans will be hoping that Cabaye is the catalyst for more quality to come, but if current talent – like Scott Dann, an £8m target for Everton – is sold off to balance the books, it might look like a gesture.

Crystal Palace have agreed a £10 million deal to sign French international midfielder Johan Cabaye from PSG…

It appears that Pardew and Palace have got their man. The pursuit of PSG’s Johan Cabaye was considered in some quarters as posturing in order to make Palace a more attractive club to other transfer targets. Neither Chelsea’s Loic Remy nor QPR’s Charlie Austin were interested in a move across London, despite the promise of first-team football at a top 10 club. But the £10m deal – which could rise to £13m with add-ons – is evidence of Chairman Steve Parish putting his money where his mouth is. PSG paid £19m for the French International in January last year, when he was reportedly on the radar of Arsenal and Manchester United. He is proven PL performer, scoring 18 goals in his 93 matches for Newcastle and we will watch the rest of the transfer window at Palace with interest.

Crystal Palace are in talks with PSG over the proposed £10 million transfer of French International Johan Cabaye…

Talk of a move for the French International has rumbled on for a while, but not it seems negotiations have reached a formal stage. Cabaye joined PSG from Newcastle – then managed by Palace boss Alan Pardew, of course - for £19 million in January 2014. But has struggled to make an impact and started just 13 matches last season. Aged 29 and with the Euros at the end of the coming season, Cabaye will be keen to secure regular first-team action. Palace expect competition though - London rivals Tottenham and West Ham have already declared an interest, plus Southampton are monitoring the situation having resigned themselves to losing Morgan Schneiderlin to Manchester United. It’s been a frustrating summer so far of Pardew and Palace, with interest in Loic Remy, Charlie Austin and Matt Phillips so far fruitless.

West Ham are looking to sign a trio of French internationals with Marseille attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet expected to be the first to join the Hammers in a move worth around $19 million.

Payet arrives on the back of a solid Ligue 1 season which returned 7 goals and 17 assists in a deal which the club hope to conclude within the next 24 hours. Payet would become the club’s third summer signing although Slaven Bilic has no intention of calling a halt to his transfer dealings just yet with the Hammers’ pursuing former Newcastle playmaker Yohan Cabaye and Chelsea striker Loic Remy. Both have struggled to nail down a regular spot at their respective clubs and the pair are keen on playing within the BPL next season although their availability has sparked interest amongst a number of sides. Any possibility of Alex Song joining West Ham looks to be over after the club refused to meet Barcelona's $8 million price tag plus the players $100k per week salary.

This one would be a huge shock if it happened but Yohan Cabaye has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace to work with Alan Pardew again.

The 29-year-old midfielder started only 13 matches for PSG this past season and featured in 11 more as a substitute. With Euro2016 scheduled for France, Cabaye may need a move away from Paris to ensure that he is getting enough playing time to feature for Les Bleus when they host the tournament. If PSG make him available, you get the feeling he could find a bigger club if he wanted to. The shred of credibility in this rumor is that the player may value the relationship with Pardew and the comfort in knowing that he will likely start every match he is healthy for if he moves to Selhurst Park.
