Connor Wickham and Wayne Hennessey will undergo late fitness tests before Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew selects his team to face Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.

Striker Wickham is suffering with a thigh injury, while goalkeeper Hennessey could be replaced by Julian Speroni if he is not passed fit.

Pape Souare will start after returning from suspension, with Martin Kelly expected to be dropped, leaving only James McArthur and Jason Puncheon - expected to return to training on Monday - as Pardew's other absentees.

Provisional squad: Adebayor, Bolasie, Cabaye, Campbell, Chamakh, Dann, Delaney, Gayle, Hangeland, Hennessey, Jedinak, Kelly, Ledley, Lee, Mariappa, McCarthy, Mutch, Sako, Souare, Speroni, Ward, Wickham, Zaha.
