Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak has accepted a Football Association charge of violent conduct after elbowing West Ham's Diafra Sakho.

Jedinak caught Hammers striker Sakho with an elbow near the end of Palace's 3-1 victory on Saturday but the incident was missed by the referee. The FA charged the midfielder retrospectively and he has accepted the charge. The Eagles say they are awaiting details of Jedinak's punishment, but it is widely expected that he will face a four games ban as this is his second red card offence of the season.

Crystal Palace are facing a striker shortage for Week 28 as they look to keep up their fine form at Southampton.

Palace will be full of confidence having comfortably brushed West Ham aside but the Eagles are suffering from a striker shortage as Glenn Murray serves a one game ban joining injured trio Marouane Chamakh, Yaya Sanogo and Fraizer Campbell [all hamstring] on the sidelines. Dwight Gayle is likely to be the lone frontman in a 4-5-1 with Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie supporting but Shola Ameobi is available should Pardew prefer a 4-4-2 formation. Jordan Mutch [thigh] will miss out after limping off at the Boleyn Ground while his replacement James McArthur should retain his place. Mile Jedinak has until 6pm [GMT] on Tuesday to respond to an FA charge of violent conduct following his alleged elbow on Diafra Sakho.

Mile Jedinak has been charged by the FA for violent conduct for allegedly hitting Diafra Sakho last weekend.

The referee didn't see the incident but it was caught on camera and Jedinak was later charged by the FA. he has been given a four-match ban but he has the option to challenge the charge before 6 pm on Tuesday. Steer clear of Jedinak this week and be ready to find a replacement for four weeks if the charge stands. The ban is four matches instead of three because this would be his second red-card of the season.

Crystal Palace won their third straight match on the road in convincing style as Glenn Murray played a key role in the 1-3 victory over West Ham United.

For the very few out there that had Murray playing for their fantasy teams, take a bow. Alan Pardew is king of the road right now, ringing in five changes and looking right on every call, especially the inclusion of Murray. After the game looked to be heading to half without a goal, Murray took a shot that went on target and was redirected by Aaron Cresswell who blocked Adrian's view and the ball trickled in. Scott Dann would put the Eagles up two when he headed in a Jason Puncheon corner at the far post early in the second half. Murray then sealed the points with a more convincing goal, timing a diving header off a Puncheon free kick for his brace. Palace's attacking options are looking better with each passing week, though Puncheon probably is more dependable for an uninterrupted run in the side than Murray is.

Marouane Chamakh is one of three Crystal Palace strikers currently sidelined because of a hamstring problem after Alan Pardew confirmed the Moroccan would be out for around two weeks.

Chamakh was injured during the build-up to last weekends’ game and missed the opportunity to face his former employers at Selhurst Park after a scan confirmed a grade one tear – a similar injury to the one suffered by team mate Yaya Sanogo – both players are expected to return for the Queens Park Rangers match in GW29. Glenn Murray and Dwight Gayle could lead the line at West Ham although Shola Ameobi is an option - Fraizer Campbell has been ruled out [for up to 6 weeks]. The Eagles will welcome back James McArthur for the trip to the Boleyn Ground while Pardew also confirmed captain Mile Jedinak had trained fully this week but a place in starting eleven is no gimme with Jordon Mutch impressing recently.

Alan Pardew is likely to be without strike duo Marouane Chamakh and Fraizer Campbell when Palace travel to West Ham in the early kick-off as the pair struggle to overcome hamstring injuries.

Chamakh has struggled this season with muscular issues and felt a problem in the build-up to last weekends’ clash with Arsenal while Campbell was forced off during the derby defeat to the Gunners. Although the severity of the strains are not yet known it is believed Palace are already considering options without the strikers with Dwight Gayle, Glenn Murray and Shola Ameobi all potential replacements. The Eagles will also assess the fitness of loanee Yaya Sanogo who has missed the last two weeks because of a similar thigh complaint although he was ineligible in GW26 under the terms of his loan agreement.

Glenn Murray scored one in stoppage time and had a second hit the post as Crystal Palace fell just short of reversing a 2-0 Arsenal lead.

A 2-0 result was always going to flatter Arsenal who managed to absorb a lot of pressure while failing to hit their best going forward. Alan Pardew's men nearly netted a great point but Glenn Murray's 94th minute header hit the post and into David Ospina's gut for the final significant act of the day.

Alan Pardew will give Mile Jedinak every chance to prove his fitness to face Arsenal, but the Eagles skipper could fall a little short.

So Jedinak is a doubt, but James McArthur has recovered from a thigh injury and although he will make the squad a starting place is rated as "touch and go." Yaya Sanogo is ineligible under the terms of his loan agreement but is struggling anyhow with a hamstring strain and Shola Ameobi "has a chance." Striking duties could fall to Marouane Chamakh, Dwight Gayle and Fraizer Campbell in a three prong attack - Jonny Williams [groin] suffered a slight setback in training on Thursday [the full extent of which is still not known].

Yaya Sanogo will miss the game against his parent club in GW26 under the terms of his loan agreement although the striker has still not recovered fully from the hamstring strain he suffered against Newcastle at Selhurst Park 10 days ago.

The Arsenal striker has struggled with a number of muscular problems since his arrival from Auxerre and it was hoped the opportunity for regular first team football at Palace would help develop the youngster but this latest setback could mean around 2/3 weeks on the sidelines. However skipper Mile Jedinak has a chance following the ankle injury he picked up playing for Australia at the Asian Cup and James McArthur will be available after a thigh injury kept the midfielder out of last weekends’ FA Cup defeat to Liverpool. Alan Pardew also confirmed Johnathan Williams suffered a slight setback in his recovery from a groin strain - the full extent of which is still not known.

Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak hopes to be back in action for the Premier League match with Arsenal this weekend.

Jedinak has been in superb for Palace this season but is yet to play under new manager Alan Pardew due to the Asian Cup and a subsequent ankle injury. However, the Australian has completed his recovery and is available for Saturday's London derby with Arsenal. The Eagles have been in excellent form despite missing their captain under Pardew, with 10 points gathered from five games, but we would still expect Jedinak to be restored to the starting line-up provided he is match fit.

Crystal Palace and Newcastle ended in a 1-1 draw in Alan Pardew's clash with his former team.

Newcastle took the lead through Papiss Cisse in the first half but Alan Pardew showed he knows his former side all too well and was able to inspire his current squad to an equalizer. Substitute Frazier Campbell came on and tied the match up, giving both teams a point. Neither team seems to be in danger of relegation at the moment and the draw was a fair result in what proved to be an even match. Alan Pardew has proved his worth to this Palace side as he has now won 16 points in his first seven matches.

Crystal Palace defender could Hangeland could keep his place in the team after he replaced the injured Scott Dann in Week 24.

A head injury forced Dann off at half-time at the King Power Stadium on Saturday but even if the defender is passed fit Pardew may prefer to stick with his replacement Hangeland after his inspired performance "He was the best player on the pitch [he won] everything in the air, [was] great defensively and contributed to the goal." Marouane Chamakh [broken nose] is expected to come back into contention but captain Mile Jedinak [ankle] is likely to miss out once again. Wednesday will come too soon for Jerome Thomas and Yannick Bolasie.

Wilfried Zaha has been quietly useful since Alan Pardew came to Crystal Palace.

Zaha still isn't a nailed on starter, but when he does play, he is useful. The last match, he played the entire 90 minutes and came out with 12 fantasy points. He's also returned 8, 6, 3, and 12 points in his last four, which is useful in deeper leagues. In formats where you can change your lineup until kickoff, Zaha can be used in weeks where he starts, which seems like it would be more often from now on.
Feb 9 - 7:27 PM

Julian Speroni was impressive over the weekend when Crystal Palace defeated Leicester City 1-0.

Speroni registered five saves, a clean sheet, and a win on the way to geting 20 fantasy points and making this week's Best XI. Crystal Palace have been better under Alan Pardew but they are still not at the point where you can use Speroni every week. He is only a good play in the right matchup. This week, he faces Newcastle at home, and we'd feel safe using him, although better plays would be David Ospina or Costel Pantilimon.

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew confirmed that skipper Mile Jedinak is likely to miss the visit of Newcastle on Wednesday as the Australian international struggles to overcome an ankle injury.

Jedinak has recently returned from Asian Cup duty after leading his national side to triumph in an extra-time victory over Korea however the Aussie captain picked up an ankle problem during the early rounds of the tournament and although he was able to play his mobility was hampered. Palace will also check on the fitness of Scott Dann [head] and Marouane Chamakh [broken nose] ahead of GW25 but Jerome Thomas [knock] and Yannick Bolasie [AFCoN] are both expected to miss out.
