Crystal Palace – Southampton Preview

  • Patrick Vieira could breathe a sigh of relief on Sunday evening as his Crystal Palace side ended a four-game winless run in style with a 3-1 win over Everton. That result heightened belief that a top-half push could still be a realistic possibility but to make that move here, they will need a result against a struggling Southampton, while relying on favourable results elsewhere.
  • That could be easier said than done, as playing late on Sunday gives them less recuperation time for this midweek clash. Added to that, the ‘Eagles’ have failed to win each of their last 11 Premier League (PL) home games played on a Wednesday (D6, L5), although they’ll be hopeful of snapping that streak, as only title-chasing Liverpool have lost fewer PL home games than Palace’s one this season (W3, D4, L1).
  • Much like their hosts, Southampton have suffered from a midweek drop themselves, failing to win any of their last 24 PL away games on a Wednesday (D8, L16). This game is expected to be just as tough, especially given the fact that it’s now been over a month since Southampton last tasted PL victory (D2, L3).
  • Providing some hope for a Saintly away performance is manager Ralph Hasenhüttl’s personal record against Crystal Palace (W2, D2, L1), though the only defeat in that sequence did come in the corresponding game last term (1-0). The bookmakers also seem to have the measure of Southampton this term, evidenced by the fact that they’re yet to defy pre-match outsider status to win in the PL (D4, L4).
  • Players to watchConor Gallagher scored his fifth and sixth PL goals of the campaign for Palace last time out, including his first match opening goal of 2021/22. With some key attacking players possibly absent, Southampton may look to Nathan Redmond for goals – eight of his last nine scoring appearances were in wins ‘to nil’.
  • Hot stat: Southampton have conceded at least twice in 11 of their last 13 PL away games.
