BY RICHARD CAWLEY Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has made three changes for today's derby with Fulham – with Nathaniel Clyne starting for the visitors. It is the right-back's first appearance since signing a short-term deal with the Eagles. He replaces Joel Ward, who does not make the matchday 18. There is also no place for James McArthur or Gary Cahill – the latter injured in last Sunday's 1-1 draw against Brighton in SE25. Luka Milivojevic and Scott Dann come in to replace them.
It means Palace are missing a number of first-teamers with Jordan Ayew and Jack Butland both self-isolating after contracting Covid-19. Fulham make just one change with Mario Lemina replacing Ivan Cavaleiro, who does not even make the bench. Fulham: Areola, Ream, Adarabioyo, Aina, Robinson, Lemina, Cairney, Loftus-Cheek, Anguissa, Lookman, Mitrovic. Subs: Rodak, Odoi, Le Marchand, Bryan, Reid, Reed, Kamara. Palace: Guaita, Mitchell, Dann, Kouyate, Clyne, Schlupp, Riedewald, Milivojevic, Townsend, Zaha, Batshuayi. Subs: Henderson, Van Aanholt, Kelly, Sakho, Meyer, Eze, Benteke. Related
