Crystal Palace News and Form
The Eagles need to snap their losing streak having suffered back to back losses against Liverpool and then Watford. Of the three league goals that the Eagles have scored this season Wilfried Zaha has two of them and he is the 7/4 joint anytime goalscorer favourite for this one alongside teammate Christian Benteke who is yet to get off the mark* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). All three of Palace’s goals this season have come from open play. This will be just the second home game for Palace this season having battled well but still losing a tough fixture against Liverpool there. It was a 2-1 loss out at Watford for them last weekend.
They will get defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka back after his ban but they are missing Pape Souare and Scott Dann. Surprisingly the Eagles haven’t actually averaged as many shots per game as Southampton had done this season but regardless of that, they have scored one goal more than Saturdays’ opponents this term. We don’t see a lot of goals flying around in his one and under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Palace were on a three-match winning streak in the league at home before that recent loss against Liverpool there. They finished last season with a W7 D5 L7 record at Selhurst Park.
Southampton News and Form
The Saints are on the hunt for their first win of the season. They opened with a home draw against Burnley and then suffered back to back defeats against Leicester. Both losses were by a one-goal margin. A Crystal Palace 1-0 correct score for this one is at 17/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) and it’s not too easy to see how the Saints are going to come up with a win in this one at all.
Southampton have now failed to win 25 of their last 28 games in the Premier League. A failure to do so in this one surely has to leave boss Mark Hughes under pressure and he is at 9/2 in the Premier League Next Manager To Go market* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). The Saints won just three-times on their travels last season and they averaged under a goal per game away from St Mary’s. Nothing much seems to have changed.
Crystal Palace v Southampton Head to Head
There was an away win in both meetings last season and both of those wins were by a one-goal margin only. Things are just set evenly over the last six league meetings with three wins each.
