Southampton plays with Crystal Palace in the 20th round of the English Premier League at St. Mary’s.
Southampton scored a valuable victory over Chelsea in the previous round, as it won 2 goals without a response, while Crystal Palace defeated West Ham United with two goals for one goal.
Crystal Palace Club has 26 points in ninth place, winning 5 games, drawing in 7 confrontations while losing 5 games.
On the other hand, Southampton club owns 21 points in 14th place, where it won 6 games, drew 3 games and lost ten games.
Southampton did not win one match in any competition between September 28 and November 23, at which point the club’s owners must are tempted to vary their manager so as to reset.
The Saints have now won four of their last six within the Premier League, though, including back-to-back victories over Aston Villa and Chelsea in their last two top-flight outings.
Thursday’s two-goal success at Stamford Bridge was hugely impressive, and therefore the result saw Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side end Boxing Day in 14th position within the table, three points beyond rock bottom three.
There is still an extended thanks to go this season, but the team’s form and indeed performances in recent weeks suggests that they’re going to have enough to secure another campaign of top-flight football.
Southampton have also won three of their last five Premier League meetings with Palace, suffering only one defeat within the process. That said, the loss during that run came at St Mary’s in January 2018.
