Crystal Palace will bring the calendar year to a close by hosting Norwich at Selhurst Park in the Premier League on Tuesday afternoon.
Patrick Vieira will still be missing from the dugout because of Covid-19 isolation, while several players are also unavailable for selection.
But the Eagles will still be expected to win and this is the team that could play…
Jack Butland (GK) – Has suddenly been favoured over Vicente Guaita for the last two Premier League games, which suggests he could start here too.
Joel Ward (RB) – More or less an automatic choice at right-back. Has even captained the side in three of his last four appearances.
Marc Guehi (CB) – Likely to come back into the side after being rested for the Spurs game.
James Tomkins (CB) – Should keep his place to partner Guehi, which would mean Joachim Andersen missing out.
Tyrick Mitchell (LB) – Was replaced by Nathan Ferguson in the final moments against Spurs but likely to return from the start here.
Conor Gallagher (CM) – As top scorer so far this season, he will be key here if Palace are to get an important win to end the calendar year.
Cheikhou Kouyate (CM) – Set for his 10th consecutive Premier League start since a brief spell out of the starting XI in October.
Will Hughes (CM) – In line to continue his run in the team in light of the expected absence of Luka Milovojevic.
Jordan Ayew (RW) – Two direct goal contributions in Palace’s last two home games stand him in good stead ahead of this one.
Jean-Philippe Mateta (ST) – Covid-19 absences and the suspension of Wilfried Zaha have severely limited Palace’s attacking options, handing a very rare start to the Frenchman.
Odsonne Edouard (LW) – Won’t be keen to play on the left but the situation deems it necessary.
