Confirmed Crystal Palace v Newcastle lineups: Cabaye starts, Mitrovic dropped to bench

Here is how Crystal Palace and Newcastle will line up this afternoon.

Alan Pardew faces his former club Newcastle this afternoon, as Crystal Palace look to bounce back from their defeat to Sunderland on Monday night.

The Eagles were once again disappointing at Selhurst Park, and they must now find a way to start winning games at home - starting with Newcastle today.

Pardew has kept the exact same team for today's game, with Wayne Hennessey and Scott Dann keeping their places despite a mistake for Sunderland's winning goal.

Former Magpies star Yohan Cabaye faces his former club this afternoon, as he looks to drive Palace towards a home victory this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are looking for just their third victory of the Premier League season as they make the long trip to London.

Steve McClaren's men were thrashed 3-0 by Leicester City last weekend, and desperately need a response as they hover precariously around the relegation zone.

McClaren's biggest move is to drop summer signing Aleksandar Mitrovic, with the Serbian left on the bench in favour of Papiss Cisse.

Jack Colback also returns from injury to partner Vurnon Anita in the middle of the park, with youngster Jamie Sterry on the bench this afternoon.
