Southampton News and Form – Can the Saints beat the Eagles?

Consecutive wins over Aston Villa and Chelsea, away from home too, have given Southampton a huge lift. That is a much-improved W4 D1 L2 record in their last seven top flight games now. In each of the four victories in that sequence, Southampton scored at least two goals as well. Returning back to St Mary’s on Saturday, the Saints have a good chance to earn even more points towards their safety. Southampton have won two of their last three home games, a two-match sequence snapped with a loss against West Ham last time out there.

There has not been a single clean sheet by Southampton on home soil this season. They have shipped two thirds of their home goals in the first 45-minutes of fixtures.

Crystal Palace News and Form – Will Crystal Palace win at Southampton?

A 2-1 win for Crystal Palace on Boxing Day at home against West Ham saw the Eagles snap a three-match winless streak (D2 L1). They have won three of their last six played in the top flight now. Out on their travels it is a W3 D2 L4 record that the Eagles have banked this season. They have secured just the one victory in their last five road games (D2 L2). There has been a distinct lack of scoring threat from Crystal Palace this season. They have scored just the 8 goals in 9 road games and have failed to score in their last two away from Selhurst Park.

But all season long they have been well-organised at the back. Only 32% of Crystal Palace’s league games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Each of their last four away from home have gone under the goal line. Palace are currently 7 points better off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign. Of the goals that they have put on the board this season, 76% of them have been after the half-time break. Home and away, Palace are without a clean sheet in three fixtures. Bottom side Watford are the only team to have produced fewer goals than Palace this season in the EPL.

Southampton vs Crystal Palace Predictions

Southampton to win: Confidence is pretty high with Southampton at the moment and they were worthy winners at Chelsea on Boxing Day. They may be able to ride that bit of momentum and sink a low-scoring Palace side on the weekend.
