Southampton vs Crystal Palace: Top Two Tips

We're bringing you our Premier League predictions for Saturday's 15:00 kick-off from St Mary's between Southampton and Crystal Palace. The Saints sit rock bottom of the Premier League table ad even a win this weekend won't be enough to lift them out of the relegation zone. Crystal Palace are looking to make it three straight league wins under the coaching duo of Roy Hodgson and Patrick McCarthy as they edge the Eagles closer and closer to safety.

Crystal Palace to Win

Our first Southampton vs Crystal Palace prediction is for an away win. Saturday's guests have won three of their last six meetings with Southampton in all competitions, running out 1-0 winners when the pair locked horns at Selhurst Park in October. Southampton have lost three of their last four league games and their last win arrived in early March against Leicester. The Eagles have looked impressive in their last two outings, beating Leicester 2-1 and Leeds 5-1, so you can see why we're backing the Londoners to beat bottom-of-the-table Southampton this weekend.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our second Southampton vs Crystal Palace prediction concerns the total goals scored by both teams. We're expecting goals in this game as four of the last five encounters between Southampton and Crystal Palace have produced over 2.5 goals. At least three goals have also been scored in two of Southampton's last three outings as well as in each of Palace's last three league games.

Southampton vs Crystal Palace Lineups

Southampton

Southampton weren't expected to beat title-chasing Man City at St Mary's last time out but they could have done with the 4-1 defeat. Guardiola's men controlled the game from start to finish with Mara's consolation goal for the Saints arriving when they were already 3-0 down. Livramento, Adams, Salisu, Lavia and Larios are the main injury concerns for the hoss this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Bazunu (GK), Bednarek, Walker-Peters, Bella-Kotchap, Elyounoussi, Ward-Prowse, Maitland-Niles, Alcaraz, Sulemana, Lavia & Walcott 

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace put in one of their best performances of the season to defeat Leeds 5-1 in their own backyard last weekend. Leeds actually took the lead through Bamford in the 21st minute but Guehi equalised for the Eagles in first-half stoppage-time. In the second forty-five, Ayew put Palace 2-1 up and shortly after, Eze made it 3-1. Edouard added a fourth goal in the 69th-minute and Ayew picked up his second goal of the game 13-minutes from time. Zaha, Ferguson, Richards and Guaita are the main injury concerns for the visitors this weekend

Predicted Lineup – Johnstone (GK), Ward, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell, Schlupp, Eze, Doucouré, Olise, Ayew & Édouard

Player to Watch: Eberechi Eze

The Eagles midfield star is having a really good season in front of goal, both in terms of goals and assists.

With Zaha looking set to miss this weekend's game, Eze is the second-top scorer at the club with 5 Premier League goals and he has also chipped in with 3-assists.

Eze was in good form against Leeds last time out and we're backing the 24-year-old to impress us once again when Crystal Palace take on Southampton this weekend.
