Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson might miss up to 12 Players for the upcoming Premier League clash at home to Lomdon rivals Arsenal.

The Eagles will play hosts to Arsenal on Saturday lunchtime and manager Roy Hodgson might need to name a makeshift team for the league game.

Crystal Palace have struggled with several injuries and that was evident at the weekend as they lost 1-0 to English Championship side Derby County at home in the FA Cup third round.

They could be boosted by the return of Christian Benteke who missed the whole of the festive period.

His last game came during the Newcastle United defeat in the league on December 21.

Crystal Palace were beaten 1-0 by hosts Newcastle United.

Belgian international striker Benteke has not scored in 16 appearances for Crystal Palace this season.

He has missed the last four games in all competitions because of a muscle injury.

His last goal came against latest opponents Arsenal last season as the Gunners lost 3-2 at home in that Premier League clash.

Apart from injury doubt Christian Benteke, others like Joel Ward, Jairo Riedewald, Mahmadou Sakho, Scott Dann, Patrick Van Aanholt, Jeffrey Schlupp are all expected to miss the Arsenal game.

Luka Milivojevic will miss the game due to auspemsion after being sent off in the FA Cup clash vs Derby County.
