Crystal Palace travel north to face Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday.

After a 2-0 defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, the Eagles will be out to win in order to avoid being drawn into a late relegation scrap.

Roy Hodgson has no fresh injury concerns after Andros Townsend recovered from a hand injury to feature against his former club Spurs, while Mamadou Sakho remains out with a serious knee injury.

Here's how the Eagles could line up against Newcastle.
