Bournemouth v Middlesbrough, Luton 1-0 Nottingham Forest: Football League
Patrick Vieira will make a late call on Tyrick Mitchell and Michael Olise ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea.
Olise sustained an injury during international duty with France’s Under-21s last month while left-back Mitchell was forced off in the weekend loss at Leicester with a minor calf issue.
Both took part in training today and Palace’s medical staff will wait to see how they react before a decision is made.
“We had Tyrick and Michael, who had some training on the field individually yesterday and a little more today,” said Vieira.
Palace are already without midfielder Conor Gallagher, arguably their player of the season so far, who cannot play in the fixture as he is on loan from Chelsea.
“The game is best known today because the first goal for Forest was scored by Roy Dwight, a cousin of Reg Dwight aka Elton John.
Unfortunately he also broke his leg and had to be carried off, which also means that Forest are the only team to win the FA Cup final with ten men.”
This is why the New Orleans Pelicans traded for CJ McCollum
