Palace to welcome back winger

Crystal Palace

Ivory Coast international Wilfried Zaha is set to return for Crystal Palace’s meeting with Chelsea at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The winger injured his knee on the opening day of the season in the loss to Huddersfield and Roy Hodgson confirmed he is expecting Zaha to be involved for the visit of the champions.

Defender Scott Dann has recovered from a slight knock and could also return to the starting line-up as Palace look to get their season up and running.

Christian Benteke is still sidelined with a knee injury and is not due to be available until next month, while loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek is ineligible to face his parent club.
