Mamadou Sakho is poised to return against Tottenham on Wednesday evening as James Tomkins is set for a spell on the sidelines.
The Crystal Palace centre-back spent the remaining minutes at Anfield limping around up front after he was caught by Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic. "It's a bad injury for Tomkins," said Sam Allardyce. "I am very pleased there's nothing broken given the nature of the tackle. He may not be fit again this season. I think he [Grujic] was lucky to get a yellow, he wasn't in control and hit just above the ankle." Tomkins was the only change on Sunday, in for Sakho who was ineligible under the terms of his loan agreement, and Allardyce may be tempted to keep things nice and simple once again unless he decides to introduce some "fresh legs" for the visit of their London rivals. Loic Remy is fit and available, although the Chelsea loanee lacks match fitness, otherwise the Eagles are pretty much as you were. Tue, Apr 25, 2017 02:05:00 PM
