Missing Players and team news:
As mentioned, Rodriguez has made great strides in his recovery from a calf problem and is in line to start on Monday over the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Alex Iwobi, while Tom Davies is also expected to be fit. However, fellow midfielders Abdoulaye Doucoure and Fabian Delph are out, as is first-choice goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, but the forgotten man Jean-Philippe Gbamin is finally ready to take part and could earn a spot on the bench. Robin Olsen will hope to get the nod in goal as Pickford remains in the infirmary, while Ben Godfrey trained individually on Friday but is expected to be fine for this encounter. Palace have an alarming number of absentees to contend with as well, as doubts persist over the involvement of Nathaniel Clyne, Tyrick Mitchell and Cheikhou Kouyate, while James McCarthur and Nathan Ferguson are definitely out. Jairo Riedewald will likely keep his spot in the engine room with James McCarthy struggling to shake off a groin problem, while Andros Townsend could feature on the right after Eberechi Eze’s exploits with the England Under-21s. Jean-Philippe Mateta has struggled to make his mark on the Premier League so far, and the 23-year-old is unlikely to force his way into the team over Christian Benteke or Wilfried Zaha here.
