Southampton vs Crystal Palace Match Preview
Southampton managed to escape relegation from the Premier League in the latter stages of last season thanks to something of a new manager bounce enjoyed after the late decision to replace Mauricio Pellegrino with Mark Hughes. The former Stoke boss just about kept the Hampshire club’s heads above water but after being unable to take any momentum from that into the new season it didn’t come as too much of a surprise when he was sacked recently with the side once again struggling towards the drop zone.
The Welsh boss was replaced by German counterpart Ralph Hassenhuttl and the ex-RB Leipzig has managed to change plenty so far in his short time with the club, reverting to a new system with three at the back and reaping the benefits so far. The Saints come into this Wednesday night fixture having taken seven points from the last available nine and having risen to 15th place in the league. They’re now favourites to pick up a third straight win at odds of 29/20 with Betfair.
Crystal Palace find themselves currently just one place above Southampton on goal difference as they continue to glance nervously over their shoulders towards the relegation zone. After Roy Hodgson, a boyhood fan of the club, took over last season from the disastrous start suffered in the ill-fated and short spell of Frank de Boer, they were able to pull away from the relegation zone but this year looks like another fight against the drop with an over-reliance of Wilfried Zaha proving pivotal once again.
An FA Cup win over London rivals on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday was well-earned and was the Eagles’ fifth win in their last eight matches, although away from home general form hasn’t been as good, though they have still managed to upset the odds with shock wins at Molineux and the Etihad Stadium in recent weeks but they’ll have to produce another good performance to pick up another three points on this trip at odds of 9/4 with Betway.
Southampton have been much improved under Hassenhuttl so far and with the home advantage we can see them getting the better of Crystal Palace in this game. The Saints haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last four matches though whilst Palace haven’t failed to find the net in any of their last five games, despite losing twice. We think the visitors will get on the scoresheet but the hosts will still pick up the three points here so the home win and both teams to score tip at 18/5 with Coral looks good to us.
Danny Ings has been a key signing for Southampton so far this season. The Liverpool loanee was brought in to add some firepower to a blunt Saints attack and has done exactly that so far, smashing in seven Premier League goals thus far. After he scored in the 0-2 victory for his side at Selhurst Park earlier in the season we fancy the 26 year old to add to his tally with another goal in this one at
