Why Joachim Andersen is absent from Crystal Palace’s squad vs Aston Villa


An explanation for the absence of defender Joachim Andersen from Crystal Palace’s squad to face Aston Villa this afternoon has been provided.

Targett the difference

Patrick Vieira’s men are of course currently locked in action at Selhurst Park.

In their latest Premier League outing, the Eagles welcomed the aforementioned Villa to the capital, hopeful of building on an impressive 7-game unbeaten streak.

As things stand on Saturday, however, Palace’s stellar stretch of form looks primed to come to an end.

This comes with the hosts currently trailing Aston Villa by a goal to nil, owing to a Matt Targett strike with a quarter of an hour on the clock.

Andersen latest

Palace’s deficit when it comes to the scoreline at Selhurst, though, as noted above, comes with an absolutely crucial member of Patrick Vieira’s starting backline having been unavailable for selection this afternoon.

The player in question? Joachim Andersen.

Danish stopper Andersen, a summer arrival from Olympique Lyonnais, has of course enjoyed a fine opening to the campaign, emerging as a leader for Palace en route to starts in all but one of the club’s Premier League outings.

In turn, ahead of the action getting underway in south London, Vieira was inevitably drawn on the whereabouts of his defensive stalwart.

And, in a concern for all associated with the Eagles, the club’s boss went on to reveal that Andersen has picked up a hamstring injury, the severity of which remains unclear at present.
