Crystal Palace boss to welcome back key attackers Cabaye, Sako, Wickham and Gayle

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew was without a number of key attacking players as his side suffered a 3-0 defeat against Chelsea on Sunday.

The Eagles have been limping up front in recent times, failing to score in their past three matches, but Pardew revealed some good ninjury news following the Selhurst Park loss to the Blues.

He said: "Fortunately I think (Bakery) Sako will be up and ready for Southampton, (Yohan) Cabaye will be back, and hopefully Connor (Wickham) can be ready for Villa.

"(Dwight Gayle) Gayley's not far away too. His presence would have worried Chelsea.

"I don't want to moan about our injuries, that's a fact of any season. Chelsea deserved to win today."
