The hosts sit ninth in the top-flight, with their opponents struggling in 17th in the Championship.

But Derby have been boosted by the arrival of Wayne Rooney, who got an assist on his debut for the club in Thursday’s win over Barnsley. It was his first competitive appearance since October and, having played the full 90 minutes, his fitness will be assessed prior to the game in London.

Rooney captained Manchester United to victory in the 2016 final against the Eagles.

But they will be aiming to keep their three match unbeaten run going against the Championship outfit on Sunday. They also boast a good record in the FA Cup, and reached the quarter final stage last season before being knocked out by eventual runners-up Watford.

Palace are currently 7/10 to edge out their opponents, with Derby available at 17/4 to win the game. A draw has been given odds of 13/5.

It’s only the second meeting between the pair in the competition, with the Rams running out 1-0 winners in the last game, a third round match in 2012. But it was Palace who won 1-0 when the sides last met in March 2013 in the Championship.

It’s currently 12/1 for another Derby 1-0 victory, and 6/1 for Palace to win 1-0 once again.

History does, however, favour the London outfit and indeed their manager. The Eagles are unbeaten in 12 home FA Cup home matches against lower league opposition, while Hodgson has progressed from 10 of his 11 FA Cup ties with lower league opponents as a top-flight manager.

19-year-old James Daly may just get the nod up front for the hosts should they rest the likes of Jordan Ayew and Conor Wickham. The youngster is available at 9/2 to score first and 7/5 to score anytime.

Derby’s Martyn Waghorn and Rooney are both 13/2 to score first, with their team-mate Jack Marriott available at 17/2.

Palace have a good recent record in the FA Cup. They were beaten by Manchester United in the 2016 final, with Rooney captaining United to victory at Wembley, while the Eagles were knocked out by Watford at the quarter-final stage last season.

The Eagles have reached the final on two occasions, losing both times to Manchester United. Derby meanwhile have been runners up three times, but boast one title having won the competition in 1946.
