• Cheick Doucoure is expected to be out of action for up to six months after suffering an Achilles injury during Crystal Palace's defeat to Luton Town last weekend.
  • The defensive midfielder has been ruled out of the Africa Cup of Nations and there are fears that he will not feature again this season.
  • Doucoure's extended spell on the treatment table comes a matter of months after he was valued at £70million amid interest from Liverpool.
