Crystal Palace vs Southampton - Premier League preview and team news

After gaining a creditable point at Swansea City, Crystal Palace will be looking to take all three against Southampton, who come into this following three successive defeats.

Selhurst Park

It was very much a game of two halves for the South London club at the Liberty Stadium, and their point was deserved despite the controversial nature of their equaliser. Glenn Murray converted the penalty for his first Premier League goal, and manager Tony Pulis will be hoping that the striker’s predatory instincts can help keep his side in the Premier League for the first time since its inception.

Southampton have conceded six times in their previous two league outings, which is a far cry from what they were in the early weeks of the season. Against Liverpool, the final scoreline was maybe somewhat harsh on the Saints, but they appeared to accept defeat once Raheem Sterling had put the visitors 2-0 in front. Manager Mauricio Pochettino will now be looking for a strong end to a strong campaign.

Crystal Palace have doubts over Marouane Chamakh, as well as Damien Delaney, Kagisho Dikgacoi and Joe Ledley, who were all forced to pull out of international duty.

The visitors could recall Victor Wanyama to the starting line-up, but goalkeeper Kelvin Davis and defender Jos Hooiveld are both doubtful.
