According to a report fro Football.London, Crystal Palace have been dealt a potentially big blow with the news that Mamadou Sakho is a major doubt for Saturday's clash with Manchester United, after being forced off during France's win over Uruguay with a suspected back injury.
Sakho joined the Eagles from Liverpool in the summer of 2017, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £26 million, having spent the previous six months on loan at Selhurst Park, and he has gone on to establish himself as one of Roy Hodgson's most important players.
Crystal Palace have made a fairly poor start to their Premier League campaign, and the last thing they need is for one of their most important players to be unavailable for selection at Old Trafford this weekend.
And according to a report from Football.London, that might very well be the case for the south London outfit, with Sakho looking unlikely to feature against the Red Devils, because of a back injury he sustained whilst playing for France.
Palace are already 8/1 outsiders to win against United, and having Sakho unavailable for the game will be a major blow for Hodgson.
