With Palace boasting the sixth best defence in the league, Hodgson will be aware of what a loss Sakho will be.

“We are going to miss him,” said Palace manager Roy Hodgson.

“He’s been very very good for the bulk of the time I’ve been here.

“From the time he’s got fit, around a year ago, he’s been exceptional and had a really good year.

“Him and James (Tomkins) have formed a fantastic partnership, so there is no way you can lose a player and not miss him.”

Hodgson paired Martin Kelly with James Tomkins at the heart of defence for the Palace’s 3-1 mid-week defeat to a Romelu Lukaku inspired Manchester United.

A Lukaku brace and an Ashley Young strike gave Untied a routine victory despite a Joel Ward diving header offering Palace hope of a come-back at 2-1.

Post-match however fans were quick to point out the void left by the crocked former Liverpool-man.

There was some good injury news however as Aaron Wan Bissaka has recovered from illness before they travel to Turf Moor.
