Eberechi Eze has moved a step closer to being back in Crystal Palace’s first-team, with the talented attacker set to feature for their U23 side today.
The Eagles confirmed on their official Twitter account that the South London-raised playmaker will play some part in their fixture against Blackburn, which kicks off at 1pm.
Eze has not featured since May after rupturing his Achilles.
He’s baaaaaack!@EbereEze10 will feature for #CPFC U23s today.

He had scored four goals in 36 appearances for the South Londoners after joining in August 2020 from QPR. The timing of his injury, sustained during a training session, had an extra bitter blow as he had just been called into the senior England squad.
“The day I come back I can feel it is going to be a beautiful experience,” he recently told PLP. “I haven’t experienced the fans before [as a Palace player at Selhurst Park] – it’s going to be like my debut again.
“I can’t tell you how happy I am to be here.”
