English Premier League -- Crystal Palace VS Southampton

Livescore | Match Prediction & Tips| Asian Handicap Odds|Line-ups& H2H Stats


Crystal Palace will be looking to build on their 2-2 draw with Manchester City when they welcome Southampton to Selhurst Park for a midweek Premier League clash.  The Eagles came away from the Etihad Stadium with a share of the spoils to end the weekend ninth in the table, two points ahead of opponents Southampton. 


Match preview

Four draws on the spin has curtailed Palace's climb up the division somewhat, but holding Arsenal and Man City in back-to-back matches is no mean feat.  The Eagles battled back to draw 1-1 with Arsenal on January 11 and came close to winning away at reigning champions City for the second season running on Saturday.  Cenk Tosun, signed on loan from Everton until the end of the campaign, gave Roy Hodgson's men a shock lead, only for Sergio Aguero to strike twice in the space of five minutes late on.  Palace showed real character to pick themselves up and claim a point, however, thanks to a 90th-minute own goal from Fernandinho that was created by Wilfried Zaha. 


Not since West Ham in December 2015 has a team drawn five Premier League games in a row, but Palace can match that return on Tuesday should their showdown with Southampton finish all square.  That was the case when the sides faced off three weeks ago as Danny Ings struck to cancel out James Tomkins' opener at St Mary's Stadium.  Ings has been key to the Saints' recent revival, with Ralph Hasenhuttl's charges climbing away from the relegation zone and into 13th place. 


Their five-match unbeaten run in the top flight was ended by Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out, however, after squandering a two-goal half-time lead to lose 3-2 on home soil.  Hasenhuttl felt a big penalty call went against his side and it remains to be seen whether the setback will have a psychological effect on Southampton, who still boast a good recent away record.  The south-coast side have are aiming to win a fourth consecutive away game for only the second time in their Premier League history, in fact, with 61% of their Premier League points this season coming away from St Mary's.  History is on the Saints' side, too, given they have won four of their last six away Premier League meetings with Palace, including the last two without conceding.

Team News 

Tosun is looking to become just the second Palace player after Bakary Sako to score on his first two Premier League starts for the club.  The Everton loanee's arrival has helped to bolster the Eagles' attacking ranks, with Christian Benteke and Andros Townsend carrying injuries.  Connor Wickham has been integrated into the side in recent weeks and came off the bench against City, but Hodgson is unlikely to tinker too much on the back of the draw in Manchester. 


Southampton striker Shane Long scored his first league goal of the season last time out and is expected to retain his place up top alongside Ings, who has 14 top-flight goals this term.  Yan Valery is the Saints' only confirmed absentee for the trip to south London, and Hasenhuttl has opted against rotating his side between league matches of late.  Che Adams, Sofiane Boufal and Moussa Djenepo were all second-half subs at the weekend and will each be hopeful of earning a recall to the starting XI on Tuesday. 


Crystal Palace possible starting lineup: Guaita; Kelly, Tomkins, Cahill, Ward; Ayew, Kouyate, McArthur, McCarthy, Zaha; Tosun 

Southampton possible starting lineup: McCarthy; Cedric, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Redmond; Long, Ings
