Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after the club confirmed he will require surgery on a knee ligament injury.

Wickham was forced off on a stretcher in Palace's dramatic 5-4 defeat at Swansea on Saturday.

The 23-year-old left the Liberty Stadium on crutches with his right knee heavily strapped, and a subsequent scan has revealed he will be now out of action for a significant period.

An investigation found the tram was travelling at more than three times the permitted speed when it crashed.
