Alan Pardew will make a late decision on Yannick Bolasie who is struggling due to sickness: "We’re waiting on him." Meanwhile, the Eagles boss also confirms Mile Jedinak "has a slight knock."
If one, or both players miss out against Stoke then Palace do have options, although Chung-Yong Lee is unlikely to be considered after he was fined this week following his comments about Pardew in the South Korean Press. Bakary Sako and Joe Ledley are poised to come in. Wilfried Zaha "still has a bit of a problem" which means he’ll miss the remaining league games "but he should be fine by the (FA Cup) final" in a little over two weeks. "He is a naturally fit guy. He did the injury before the semi-final. We monitored him afterwards and saw there was a slight tear." Sullay Kaikai was brilliant during his loan spell at Shrewsbury and young midfielder will be play a part during the run-in: "I'm not sure I'll involve him this weekend, but I will involve him at Southampton. He's earned that." May 5 - 9:29 AM

Crystal Palace will be relieved have all of its usual starters available to face Watford in the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday.

Manager Alan Pardew confirmed that winger Yannick Bolasie and defenders Scott Dann and Joel Ward will all be in contention to start against Watford after missing Wednesday's loss to Manchester United due to various knocks sustained last weekend against Arsenal. The squad was so depleted against the Red Devils that Pardew made seven changes to the starting lineup from the Arsenal draw. But the move were suited to getting the club back to full strength before what is undoubtedly the biggest game of the season for the club at Wembley.

Crystal Palace will be without four of its weekend starters for Wednesday's Premier League fixture against Manchester United.

Manager Alan Pardew revealed that winger Yannick Bolasie, who scored the equalizing goal against Arsenal for a critical point this weekend, will miss the run-in due to a knock while Joe Ledley will follow suit after starting this weekend in place of Wilfried Zaha. The Palace manager also confirmed that Joel Ward and Scott Dann will be absent for tomorrow's match due to injuries sustained over the weekend in the hopes of being available to face Watford in the FA Cup semfinals this weekend. Jordon Mutch and Lee Chung-Yong could be in for a recall to the starting XI while the club could also opt for two strikers in Connor Wickham and Emmanuel Adebayor.

Crystal Palace clawed back from a 1-0 away deficit against a formidable Arsenal attack for a 1-1 draw at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

The Eagles need just eight points from five remaining matches to clinch their survival after taking such a critical point from Arsenal. The Palace defense held strong despite 21 shots from the Gunners. But the one moment of weakness came when a limping Scott Dann failed to clear the ball in stoppage time of the first half before Alexis Sanchez dispatched a header into the back of the net for a 1-0 lead. But the home side couldn't put the game away before Yannick Bolasie surprised Petr Cech with a daisy-cutter from outside of the box after Emmanuel Adebayor fed the winger off a counter-attack to seal the draw.

Crystal Palace was handed a major boost with the return of winger Yannick Bolasie from injury on Sunday in the FA Cup against Spurs.

Bolasie came on as a second-half substitute for Emmanuel Adebayor in the 76th minute after missing close to the last two months with a hip injury. Crystal Palace has not won a single Premier League match in the nine matches since Bolasie was sidelined and the Eagles have only scored four goals in that span after going goalless in the first five matches. Now that Bolasie is back into the mix, expect Alan Pardew to throw him straight back into the starting lineup to give the struggling attack a much-needed upgrade, making him a good fantasy option in any format.

Alan Pardew confirmed that this weekend's match will come too soo for Yannick Bolasie and Bakary Sako, but the duo is in line to return to training next week.

Bolasie has missed the past six weeks with a leg injury and the Crystal Palace attack has struggled mightily in his absence with only three goals and no wins since Boxing Day. Upon his return, Bolasie could be a shrewd fantasy pickup considering his stellar second-half to last season. Sako is set to join him in full training next week as he recovers from a hamstring injury that has kept him out for a month. The former Wolves forward aggravated the injury upon his initial return after missing a month and has only made one appearance in the past two months.

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew made two brief statements concerning the winter transfer window for the Eagles: Search for a forward and no selling key players.

Said Pardew: "One of the reasons we gave them the contracts was to say: 'We want to keep your heart and your mind here'"...The fact of it is that we are pretty confident that we will keep all of our best players here. One or two players who are not playing may move on if the bid is right, for sure." Yannick Bolasie is one of those players who recently signed a new contract after lots of transfer interest this summer. Pardew, who is in talks over a new deal himself, also said the club won't be looking to sign any defenders or midfielders, with just a forward in mind following all the club's injuries up front and the departure of Patrick Bamford.

Alan Pardew confirmed Crystal Palace have suffered a double injury blow with the news that Connor Wickham and Yannick Bolasie are expected to miss the next month at least.

A hamstring strain forced Wickham off during the recent win over Stoke while Bolasie picked up a hip injury at the Britannia. "They’re not going to play on Monday [against Swansea]," Pardew said. "They look as though they’ll both be out for about four weeks. "We’re pretty thin at the moment but that’s part of the game." Fraizer Campbell led the attack against Bournemouth while Jordon Mutch disappointed after starting his first Premier League game since August.

Palace suffer a second successive defeat and second successive blank in front of goal, raising questions about their cutting edge…

Plenty went right for Palace in the summer, but they didn’t add the striker they wanted. Likewise, there has been plenty to be pleased about with their start to the season. But two defeats without scoring hints that the lack of a finisher could restrict their upward progress. Yanick Bolasie started the match in the central striking role – the fifth player to be given the role this season. But was replaced by Frazier Campell (the sixth) in a half-time reshuffle. Bakery Sako, Jason Puncheon, Wilfried Zaha and Johan Cabaye have all performed well so far, without really delivering enough end product. The same could be said for Palace as a whole. Injured defenders Joel Ward and Scott Dann remain their 2nd and 3rd best performers according to and until Conor Wickham comes back – and starts scoring – that is likely to remain the case.

Palace boss Alan Pardew was pragmatic in defeat against the early Champions-elect…

The manner of Palace’s defeat was harsh – a last minute goal from a substitute moments after your sub has missed a sitter is always difficult to take. But Pardew acknowledged that Palace were second best in the second half. Bakary Sako wasn’t able to reproduce last week’s heroics but Wilfried Zaha and Yanick Bolasie were a constant threat. Bolasie – starting in a central striking role that will delight FL managers who the midfielder if he stays there – still hasn’t claimed his first home goal. But it is just a matter of time. Palace again looked solid defensively and inventive going forward. If Bolasie – or someone - can find their shooting boots, the Eagles look well capable of a Top 8 finish.

Yannick Bolasie is set to return for Crystal Palace after a week out following the death of his father.

There was speculation rampant after Bolasie was held out last weekend because his name has come up frequently in transfer speculation. As it turned out, Bolasie was given compassionate leave after the passing of his father. He should be back in the squad and the starting line-up for this weekend's match at Stamford Bridge which will be a great measuring stick for an improved Crystal Palace squad that will hope to fight for a spot just below the Champions League places this season.

Yannick Bolasie was a late omission from the Crystal Palace squad on Saturday as the 26 year-old was given compassionate leave following the sudden death of his father.

Bolasie left for the DR Congo on Friday and could miss next weekends’ encounter at Stamford Bridge "I couldn't care less if he takes three weeks," said Pardew. "It's not easy losing your father. I lost my father." His absence handed a late call-up for Bakary Sako who took his chance and capped an excellent individual performance to score the winner against Aston Villa with only three minutes remaining. Sako recently signed from Championship side Wolves to increase competition in wide areas - Wilfried Zaha and Bolasie - although Pardew admitted that most of credit should go to chairman Steve Parish who persuaded him to take a chance on the winger when the club were initially in the market for a left-back.

Alan Pardew has revealed that "it come take time" before Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie get up-to speed after missing a large chunk of pre-season due to injury.

Zaha had surgery to address a toe problem while Bolasie only returned to the first-team for the season opener at Norwich having missed the previous 3-weeks due to a hamstring complaint. Following the 2-1 home defeat to Arsenal Palace boss Pardew was quoted as saying that some of his "exuberant" attacking players were "not quite there yet physically" although they weren’t far away. However the Eagles boss did single out praise for new signings Yohan Cabaye, Connor Wickham and Alex McCarthy who "have been terrific." Palace take on Villa this weekend and could include Bakary Sako in the squad for the first time since his big money move from Wolves. The winger is working on increasing his fitness levels having stepped up to the PL for the first time in his career.

Crystal Palace are set to announce their fifth signing of the summer, beating West Brom to the signature of winger Bakary Sako…

Manager Alan Pardew was being a tad coy with confirming the name of his latest acquisition, as – like many transfer dealings – the Wolves winger is just one link in the chain. The 27-year-old Mali international Sako has been in talks with West Brom, but they are thought to prefer Matt Phillips from QPR – a deal that is also close – so Palace have snuck in the backdoor. This in turn will add fuel to the speculation that Palace winger Yannick Bolasie could be about to leave the club. Word coming out of Palace is Bolasie will not be sold this summer. But Tottenham are long-time admirers and Bolasie himself has done nothing to quell the rumours. So don’t be surprised in Sako’s signing triggers a domino effect…

Multiple teams have inquired about Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie, but it's unknown if the winger is available.

Tottenham, West Ham, and Aston Villa have all reportedly inquired about Bolasie. According to Sky Sports, at least two of those teams are expected to bid on the winger. Bolasie is a 25-year-old player who can create chances for others and finish his own. It's unknown what price Alan Pardew is willing to sell him at, but he told the media Bolasie is valued at £40m, which is a ridiculous price for an average winger. Villa should be considered the favorites to win a bidding war as they have a huge need in attack and a lot of money from the sales of Christian Benteke and Fabian Delph.
