Hello and welcome to coverage of Crystal Palace vs Fulham from Selhurst Park.
Palace are 10 points clear of the relegation zone after their last-gasp win over Brighton on Monday.
Christian Benteke scored the winner at the Amex Stadium and manager Roy Hodgson is hopeful the Belgian striker can get back to his best.
“If you don’t score goals as a centre-forward, you don’t get too many pats on the back,” Hodgson said. “We’ll be happy as long as he’s getting into those positions. We believe if he keeps doing that he will score goals and they don’t all have to be as spectacular as the one the other night.
“If he gets a run of games, which he’d need to merit because there are other players looking to take his position, then let’s hope he can make certain the false dawn that has been alluded to isn’t a false dawn and we get back Christian Benteke in the same form he was several years ago.”
Meanwhile, Fulham boss Scott Parker has hailed goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, who joined the club on a year-long deal from Paris Saint Germain in the summer and has kept seven clean sheets.
“To be fair before he came to the club we looked at it and thought what do we need. And certainly in this moment physicality, presence, bravery as a keeper in terms of all those attributes was something that me and Rob (Burch, goalkeeping coach) highlighted really,” he said.
“And looking at Alphonse and his stature and games he has played, I had no doubt that was what he was. A very aggressive keeper, a front-foot keeper who wants to come and command his box, come and collect.
“Physically very very big, agile. They were all the areas we looked at and they were the areas he ticked those boxes, and that was exactly what we need and we’ve not been shocked in any way by that.
“If anything, it’s just proved even more so that when he has come in, what we see daily and what we see in games is exactly that so he has been very good.”
