Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira says having nine of his senior players absent from their pre-season tour is proving problematic.

Wilfried Zaha, Marc Guehi, Eberechi Eze and Christian Benteke are among those who have not been able to join the Eagles’ stint in Singapore and Australia.

The 46-year-old has refused to expand on individual reasons with coronavirus vaccination status and fitness concerns thought to be among the issues.

Vieira explained: “It is not the ideal situation for a manager to have so many players behind. We are not going to talk about the private situation of players and whether they are vaccinated or not.

“It is difficult. It hasn’t allowed us to play games together and work on a tactical basis together. It will take a couple of games before the team starts to gel.”

A youthful Palace side will take on Manchester United at Melbourne Cricket Ground tomorrow morning.

The Football Association will trial a ban on heading in matches at Under-12s level this coming season.

It comes after research last year suggested professional footballers are significantly more likely to die from brain disease than other people.

Once results have been assessed, the move could be replicated across the full youth football spectrum.

An FA statement explained: “Should the trial be a success, the aim is to then remove deliberate heading from all football matches at U-12 level and below from the 2023-24 season.”

Bolton manager Ian Evatt says his players will train through the intense UK heat

Bolton players will be made to train “fully and intensely” this afternoon despite soaring UK temperatures after a disappointing pre-season friendly performance.

The Trotters were beaten 3-1 at League Two outfit Carlisle on Saturday and their boss Ian Evatt says that disappointing showing means his squad will need sun cream and water bottles at the ready.

Evatt told local reporters: “We won’t tailor anything because of the heat. They lost that right [on Saturday].

“So they will be training properly, they will be training fully and they will be training intensely.

“We are professionals. We are here to work, we are here to train hard and we will be working a normal working week.”
