C Palace v Norwich preview

Crystal Palace striker Cameron Jerome will face a late fitness test on a knee injury sustained while challenging with Joe Hart in the defeat at Manchester City.

Midfield duo Stuart O'Keefe (thigh) and Kagisho Dikgacoi (hamstring) have returned to training this week and they will face late fitness tests ahead of the game.

Although Tony Pulis will continue to be without Jack Hunt (ankle), Glenn Murray (knee), Jerome Thomas (calf) and Adlene Guedioura (rib).

The visitors are hopeful of having top scorer Gary Hooper fit after he was forced off with a tight hamstring in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

Defender Michael Turner will be available for selection once again having served his one-game suspension for accumulating five yellow cards, but Jonny Howson remains doubtful due to a back problem.

Midfielders Anthony Pilkington (hamstring) and Alexander Tettey (ankle) are on course to return in January, while winger Elliott Bennett (knee) is a long-term absentee.
