Crystal Palace v Liverpool

Tony Pulis is set to have a full squad available. Midfield dynamo Kagisho Dikgacoi missed last Sunday's 2-0 defeat against Manchester City but Pulis is optimistic all his players will be fit to face the Reds.

Striker Daniel Sturridge's fitness will be assessed over the weekend to see whether he is ready to start. The England international came off the bench against Chelsea last weekend after recovering from a hamstring problem. Midfielder Jordan Henderson serves the final game of his three-match suspension.
