NEIL Warnock believes it's a tough decision selecting his starting eleven with such talent running throughout the squad. With Marouane Chamakh returning from injury, the manager has an almost full squad to pick from ahead of his side's 2-0 victory over Leicester City on Saturday. He said: "It was difficult today, I had to leave Barry Bannan out today and I thought he was outstanding against Newcastle (on Wednesday), so it is tough. "I went with four forwards today and I could see a position where I could have to use every one of them and that's why I went with a positive bench. "I thought every one of them could have been used." Warnock started the game with Yannick Bolasie and Jason Puncheon on each wing in an unchanged starting XI that faced Everton last Sunday. Warnock said: "Jason's probably not getting as much limelight as Yannick but as I've said to him when they mark Jason tight this year they leave Yannick a little bit of space. "He played a team game last week against Leighton Baines, he was fantastic. His contribution is a manager's dream really at the moment." "I think the last couple of years he's been phenomenal and we're really pleased to have him playing like he is. "I wouldn't like to mark either of them at the moment as they are very difficult to play against." Palace's centre midfield trio of Mile Jedinak, James McArthur and Joe Ledley worked fantastically on the counter attack and Warnock praised McArthur in particular. "I said to James McArthur, 'You'll be hell of a player when you get fit son,' and he said, 'I'll be a couple of weeks yet.' "He's been great off the field as well. Joe's just fitted in lovely and I think Jedinak has done a really good job too."
