The Lowdown: Andersen doubts
The Eagles have been without a number of first-team squad members this season, with Jack Butland, Nathan Ferguson and James McArthur all yet to feature in 2022/23.
Centre-back Joachim Andersen then joined the trio on the treatment table after suffering a calf injury in training. The 26-year-old is thought to be a doubt for Sunday’s clash with Leeds United, and it looks as if Clyne may join the Denmark international on the treatment table.
The Latest: Clyne claim
Reporter Warlow looked at Palace’s injury issues in a story for football.london on Wednesday.
He said that Clyne, hailed as a hard-working player by Patrick Vieira earlier this year, could be out for the ‘foreseeable future’ after suffering an ankle injury against Chelsea at the weekend.
The Verdict: Not ideal
Where will Palace finish this season?
15th or lower
Vieira used Joel Ward at centre-back at Selhurst Park on Saturday, however, he may now be forced into more changes at the back.
James Tomkins replaced Clyne, so he could come in from the off at centre-back, should Andersen not feature, while Ward could return to his more natural right-back role in place of Clyne.
