Crystal Palace have six players out on international duty this November, and the Southampton game has now been given a new date.

Wilfried Zaha is with the Ivory Coast for their clash against Morocco in Abdijan this weekend. With a place at the Russia World Cup up for grabs, the side trail their opposition by a single point in the qualifying group so it’s very much a winner takes all scenario.

Luka Milivojevic has already qualified with Serbia and they have two friendlies planned this month against China and South Korea.

Lee Chung-yong’s injury means he misses out this time round.

With Wales failing to qualify, Wayne Hennessey is on friendly duty as they face France and Panama.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has received a maiden first call up for England and he could become the 14th Palace player to represent the Three Lions.
