Crystal Palace: Roy Hodgson delivers positive injury update on James McCarthy

Crystal Palace: Roy Hodgson delivers positive injury update on James McCarthy - Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace have somewhat of an injury crisis at the moment, but one player seems to be close to returning and the club will be hoping he can be involved against Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday.

The latest Palace injury update

Irishman James McCarthy has been absent since the 30th of January due to a minor injury issue. Speaking in his press conference previewing the huge clash against Brighton and Hove Albion, manager Roy Hodgson said: ‘James McCarthy trained today which is positive’

This is a boost for Palace

The Palace manager is clearly an admirer of the central midfielder as he called him a ‘class act‘ last season. The 30 year-old is seen as a player who provides some depth and can be called upon when needed, this is emphasised by the fact he has only featured in eight Premier League games this season. However, when called upon he does a solid job, and has managed 1.4 tackles a game (WhoScored).

This depth he provides, plus the fact that the South London side have not named a midfielder on their substitute bench in recent matches shows that his possible return is needed.

The club also have at least nine injuries at the moment, and with them losing their last two matches, players returning from injury will be a huge morale boost.

In other news, many Palace fans have reacted to rumours linking a Serie A defender to the club!
