Southampton vs Crystal Palace Match Preview and Team News
The Saints have been in utter disarray for a while now, and ever since they reached the Premier League table back in the early doors of the season, the club has been on a downwards spiral and found their Europa League aims to turn into late relegation fears. In fact, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have dropped from inside the top eight to now 16th in the table, and they are only being saved this late in the season due to the torrid form of Fulham, West Bromwich Albion, and Sheffield United – each of whom has been doomed for the Championship for most of the season. A lot of Southampton’s concerns have come as a result of their luck with injuries, as leading goalscorer Danny Ings has been in and out of the team for much of the last few months, and players like Nathan Redmond and James Ward-Prowse have also taken a hit. James Ward-Prowse has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Theo Walcott is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed and an excellent one-on-one game
Like their Tuesday opponents, Palace has also been in poor form for some time, and their fans have matched this with their voices to have this season be Roy Hodgson’s last. However, they are three places above Southampton, and despite their torrid form at times and one win in their previous five, they are still closer to the top half than the drop zone. Christian Benteke as well, who can always be a threat at some stage. Eberechi Eze also scored that day, and like Zaha, he can be crucial against this weakened Saints side. Wilfried Zaha is the best player on the team, it will be challenging to keep him, and many great clubs want him. Jean-Philippe Mateta enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
