Premier League Preview for Southampton v Crystal Palace along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Southampton have started this season in rather decent form, especially after beating the most difficult of their first five opponents in their 1-0 away win at Liverpool. It seems that this season they have taken a somewhat more pragmatic approach in only allowing two goals. They have struggled a bit more on offense in only scoring three. Their eight points have them in seventh place in the league with a record of 2-2-1.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, are second from the bottom in 19th place with only one win (a 1-0 over last placed Sunderland) and four losses. In this time they have scored four goals, but have allowed eight.
My prediction is for a Southampton win. This could be a match that Southampton is finally able to break out offensively. Crystal Palace has struggled defensively and Southampton is due to show their attacking strength.
Betting Odds: Southampton win: 1.47-1.53; Draw: 4.04-4.36; Crystal Palace win: 7.17-8.50
