Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm will replace Hugo Lloris, who is out for four weeks with a hamstring injury.
Mousa Dembele serves the fourth game of a six-match ban, while Son Heung-Min will be assessed after returning from Olympic duty with South Korea.
James Tomkins, James McArthur and Jordon Mutch could return for Crystal Palace.
Yohan Cabaye only featured as a substitute last weekend but is now considered fit enough to start.
Pape Souare should be available despite being forced off last weekend, while Steve Mandanda could be in contention after playing for Palace’s development squad on Monday.
MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES
Guy Mowbray: “The start of a new season – and we’re all full of the joys of summer, right? Well, not everyone.
“He may have a point, but Mauricio Pochettino has grumbled about his international-heavy squad needing more of a break, with nine of his starting line-up at Everton having played at the Euros or Copa America.
“Perhaps last year’s slow-ish start to the campaign is about to be replicated?
“Given Palace’s results in 2016 so far, Alan Pardew can be excused not having a perma-grin – especially after losing two more players since losing to West Brom.
“Christian Benteke’s arrival will help on the smile front – but not as much as the possibility of playing Spurs early enough to catch them cold.
“With wind and rain forecast, it could be a rusty afternoon all round.”
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: “You cannot play the Euros and start [the Premier League] on 13 August. How can you give rest to the players after the whole season?
“If you give rest in training and say, ‘I don’t want to use this player that was involved in the Euros’ and you have no positive results – the media, the supporters, the board and the president kill me.
“You are in competition for 11 and a half months and the players, because you pay them good salaries, don’t deserve the holidays? Come on. And the families? The sons? The kids? They are not machines.”
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: “It’s important when you lose iconic players to try to replace them with iconic players. We’ve lost two this week, Mile Jedinak and Yannick Bolasie. Both were massive figures at this club and we will need to replace them with big figures.
“That’s something that didn’t always happen at Newcastle, unfortunately, so I’m pleased the board have been brave with this move [for Christian Benteke].
“We need to get him back to doing what he does best. His style of play, the way he feeds off crosses… He’ll enjoy that with the wide players we have. But he’s not our player yet.”
Tottenham did not start well but came back to draw at Everton, while Crystal Palace could not score at home and were beaten by West Brom.
Tottenham are without injured goalkeeper Hugo Lloris but I do not see that being a problem here while the Eagles are seeking a new striker.
