Team news: Find out Palace lineup as Academy prospect joins squad v Fulham

Roy Hodgson has made two changes to his Crystal Palace lineup to face Fulham at Selhurst Park today

The Palace manager has brought Patrick van Aanholt and Christian Benteke into his starting XI, replacing Tyrick Mitchell and Jean-Philippe Mateta from the side which kicked-off against Brighton & Hove Albion.

After confirming Nathaniel Clyne has sustained a minor muscle injury, Hodgson has named Under-23s defender Reece Hannam in the squad, including him on the bench alongside Martin Kelly, Michy Batshuayi and James McCarthy among others.

Hannam joined Palace from West Ham's Academy in summer 2020 and has been a regular part of Shaun Derry's Development team since.

Fulham have named former Eagle Ruben Loftus-Cheek in their midfield as well as recent signing Josh Maja, who has netted two goals from four games on loan from Bordeaux.

Palace: Guaita, Van Aanholt, Cahill, Kouyate, Ward, Riedewald, Milivojevic, Eze, Townsend, Ayew, Benteke.

Subs: Butland, Dann, Kelly, Hannam, McCarthy, Mateta, Batshuayi.

Fulham: Areola, Tete, Andersen, Aina, Adarabioyo, Reed, Decordova-Reid, Anguissa, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman, Maja.
Subs: Fabri, Ream, Cavaleiro, Lemina, Bryan, Onomah, Kongolo, Robinson, Mitrovic.

'We got a job to do' - Fulham's Maja targets three points against his former club Crystal Palace

Fulham have three big games coming up, starting with this afternoon's fixture against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, before facing Tottenham Hotspur and the champions Liverpool.

Nigeria international Josh Maja spent the formative years of his career at the Crystal Palace academy before moving to Fulham and he is targeting a win against his former club.

"It's going to be nice, it's going to a good experience," Maja said to FFCtv.

"Yes, it's my former club but we got a job to do and that's to win the game, and we're going to go into it with energy, with confidence and hoping to come away with three points."

Maja praised the Eagles for their recent win against Brighton & Hove and explained why they are a difficult side to come up against.

"They have good know-how, they know how to weather storms in terms of pressure on them and as you saw in their last game against Brighton they came up with a late winner which is obviously good for them.

"We are just hoping that we can do our job well, score the goals that we need to score and come away with three points."

Maja is one of four players of Nigerian descent picked by manager Scott Parker in his starting XI versus Crystal Palace, the others being Tosin Adarabioyo, Ola Aina and Ademola Lookman.
