Crystal Palace defender set to miss out again when Leeds visit Selhurst Park

Joachim Andersen looks set to miss Crystal Palace’s home game against Leeds United on Sunday.

A calf injury saw the Danish centre-back sidelined for last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne came off in the 43rd minute against the Blues after suffering an ankle injury.

Eagles boss Patrick Vieira shifted Joel Ward across from central defence to replace Clyne with James Tomkins coming on to partner Marc Guehi.

Leeds will be without Colombian winger Luis Sinisterra after he was sent off in the 0-0 draw with Aston Villa at Elland Road.

The £21million summer signing from Feyenoord collected a second booking from referee Stuart Attwell for preventing a free-kick being quickly taken.

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch, who served a one-match touchline ban against Villa, said: “It wasn’t an intelligent play. You have to be smarter when you have a yellow card. Then he put the team in a difficult spot – but we fight like hell.

“We’re a young team, relatively inexperienced in many ways. We’re going to be a good team. We’re not there yet, but we will be.”

Asked about watching Leeds’ last match from the media area, Marsch said: “The beauty of being up there is you have a really good tactical view of what is happening in the match. I can come down at half-time and have real clear ideas about what we need to do. The unfortunate part is you feel like you’re far away from the team and not really connected.

“I’m going to try and keep my behaviour good, so I can stay on the touchline.”
