Southampton v Crystal Palace Match Preview & Trends

Saints and Palace collide with neither side having their future secure

Should Fulham fail to win against Burnley on Monday night then both of these sides can play without pressure knowing they are safe when they meet at St.Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday evening. As things stand, West Brom joined Sheffield United in being relegated when they lost to Arsenal which means there is just one more team to go down. Ralf Hassenhuttl and Roy Hodgson will both be keen observers of the Monday night football but regardless of the result, they both have a match to prepare for. 

If Southampton win, they would reduce the gap with Crystal Palace to a 1-point difference in the league table. Should the match end in a draw, The Eagles would remain 4 points ahead of Saints but if Palace win, they would increase their lead over Southampton to 7 points in the league table, and it would be Southampton’s 8th consecutive match with at least 1 goal conceded.

Southampton have scored 63% of their goals in the first half and have conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 7 home matches. Saints have won just one of their last 5 Premier League home games but have scored before half-time in 75% of their home league games this season. There have been more goals in the first half in 41% of Southampton’s league games this season and there has been fewer than four cards in each of the last 5 league games involving Southampton.

Crystal Palace have scored in each of their last 5 away matches and there have been fewer than four cards in each of the last 5 games involving The Eagles. Palace’s average goals conceded per match away is 1.71 whilst Roy Hodgson’s men have averaged 1.18 goals scored per match fixture away from Selhurst Park.
