Manuel Pellegrini is likely to ring the changes for Palace with several first team players perhaps in line for a rest. Of these, Alvaro Negredo, David Silva and Pablo Zabaleta would seem to be the likely candidates set for rotation, with the likes of Edin Dzeko, James Milner and Gael Clichy all pressing for recalls. Matija Nastasic could be recalled, having been among the substitutes on Boxing Day.
Crystal Palace forward Marouane Chamakh is available after suspension. Stuart O'Keefe and Kagisho Dikgacoi will take late fitness tests to see if they will be involved.
