Southampton are struggling to get a win at the moment and they will not relish facing this motivated Palace side. The visitors are without various players but they played well against Man City and will expect to at least get on the scoresheet so consider Both Teams to Score in this one.

May 2016 saw Southampton record their biggest win over Crystal Palace in 17 years. This was thanks to a 4-1 victory at St Mary’s. The game looked a close encounter with 25 minutes remaining but late goals from Ryan Bertrand and Steven Davis made sure of the points for the Saints.
