Crystal Palace will be without red-hot Jeffrey Schlupp for the next two months due to a hip injury.
Schlupp was forced off at half-time during Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Watford in the Premier League.
He has been ruled out of Eagles next game against Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday.
Reports from England suggest that Schlupp has suffered tendon damage to his hip and could be out of action for between two months.
The news is another blow for Roy Hodgson’s men — who have Patrick Van Aanholt and Joel Ward on the injury list at Selhurst Park ahead of the busy festive period.
Schlupp has scored two goals and provided two assists in 14 Premier League appearances this season.
