Delaney has recovered from a bout of the flu ahead of Saturday's trip to Manchester United, manager Neil Warnock told the Croydon Advertiser.

Delaney missed the game after falling ill on Friday and hasn't played since being sent off against Chelsea midway through last month. "On Friday he was sent home with a bug or something, then Alex Manos (first team physio) said I couldn't use him on Saturday," manager Neil Warnock said. "He'll come back into the squad for this weekend." Delaney should replace Brede Hangeland at centre half and resume a partnership with Scott Dann that has already produced two clean sheets this season.

Delaney (suspension) won't play this Saturday against West Brom.

Delaney (suspension) was given his marching orders in the first half of last week's 2-1 defeat against Chelsea after picking up two yellow cards. Delaney and central defensive partner Scott Dann (knee) are both out and it will be down to Brede Hangeland and Adrian Mariappa to fill the void.

Delaney was given his marching orders in the 43rd minute in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.

Delaney needlessly brought down Chelsea forward Loic Remy for a second yellow card that evened up the numbers. The centre back's first yellow came after he argued back with the referee following an earlier foul and he is now out of next week's match at West Bromwich Albion.

Delaney kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 2-0 win over Leicester.

Delaney has made a big difference since returning to the team to partner Scott Dann in the centre of the Crystal Palace defence and looks a good bet to record a clean sheet in most home games.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delaney started his first game of the season in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham United.

Delaney was called into the side by caretaker manager Keith Millen to replace injured Scott Dann (quad). Delaney is a backup to both Dann and Brede Hangeland, with the latter’s back problems likely to mean Delaney will be used often, which could come with a number of clean sheets.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Delaney should get his first start of the season this Saturday against West Ham.

Delaney is likely to deputise for Scott Dann after caretaker manager Keith Millen admitted he only has an “outside chance” of being fit for Saturday’s game. Delaney played in all but one of Palace’s games last season and West Ham represents an opportunity for a first clean sheet of the season
