Crystal Palace quartet ruled out of Newcastle United clash - but key man will return

The latest Crystal Palace injury and team news ahead of the Premier League fixture with Newcastle United.

Crystal Palace are set to be without four first-team players for today’s visit to Newcastle United.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Patrick Vieira’s side following their frustrating midweek draw with Brentford - but they will still be missing a quartet of bodies.

Goalkeeper Jack Butland is sidelined for the next few months after picking up a wrist injury during pre-season.

James McArthur is also out, as are defenders James Tomkins and Nathan Ferguson, who is a long-term absence.

Palace, however, will welcome back Will Hughes into the matchday squad after he missed the 1-1 draw versus The Bees.

“There are no doubts,” Vieira said. “Will Hughes will be in the squad. He’ll train with the team this morning (Friday). He’s feeling good. Everybody is fit to travel.”

Newcastle hope to have Alexander Isak fit and available after he withdrew at Anfield on Wednesday with a dead leg.

With Callum Wilson out for another week at least, Isak is in line to make his first St James’ Park appearance after marking his debut with a goal at Liverpool.

Bruno Guimaraes and Allan Saint-Maximin are close to making their returns but the visit of Palace may be a game too soon for the pair.

Emil Krafth and Jonjo Shelvey are long-term injuries for United.
