Crystal Palace vs Newcastle - Tosun set to return as Palace take on Newcastle

Crystal Palace should have forward Cenk Tosun and defender Martin Kelly back for the visit of Newcastle on Saturday in the Premier League.

The on-loan Everton striker missed the 3-1 defeat at Goodison Park two weeks ago because of a hamstring injury, but he would have been ineligible to feature anyway against his parent club. Kelly was ruled out with a calf strain, although both are now fit again.

James Tomkins has joined the Eagles injury list with a hamstring issue and Mamadou Sakho is out with the same problem. Jeffrey Schlupp returned to training this week after a lengthy absence with a hip injury, but will not feature against the Magpies.

Newcastle striker Joelinton faces a fight to be fit for his side’s trip to south London.

The Brazilian is battling to shake off a thigh injury while Christian Atsu is likely to be ruled out due to illness.

There is better news for Magpies boss Steve Bruce, with Dwight Gayle and Yoshinori Muto both available again after recovering from recent knocks.

Crystal Palace provisional squad: Guaita, Ward, Kelly, Cahill, Van Aanholt, McCarthy, Milivojevic, McArthur, Ayew, Tosun, Zaha, Hennessey, Dann, Riedewald, Kouyate, Meyer, Townsend, Benteke, Pierrick, Henderson.

Newcastle provisional squad: Dubravka, Darlow, Yedlin, Rose, Lascelles, Fernandez, Clark, Schar, Hayden, S. Longstaff, M. Longstaff, Ritchie, Lazaro, Allan, Saint-Maximin, Almiron, Joelinton, Sorensen.
