What Trueform says for Southampton vs Crystal Palace
Southampton and Crystal Palace have achieved similar Trueform ratings for the last three rounds of Premier League fixtures, but the Eagles just get the nod on two previous victories.
Palace showed they can perform on the road when prevailing 3-0 at Leicester last month and a repeat of that form would be enough to upset Saints judged on our chart.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton responded well to a 5-2 drubbing by Tottenham when drawing 0-0 at Manchester United, where they defended resolutely and also played some nice football going forward.
Saints manager Mauricio Pellegrino sprang a surprise by replacing England international goalkeeper Fraser Forster with Alex McCarthy at Old Trafford and he could be given another chance to shine.
Pellegrino said: “I think he was correct, he was good, he was calm and always showing personality in a difficult game.”
However, despite that encouraging effort, Southampton are now winless in eight games, with their last two home matches resulting in a 4-1 loss to Leicester and a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Crystal Palace justifiably earned plenty of plaudits for their performance in a goalless draw with Manchester City, taking the game to the runaway leaders at every opportunity.
Despite ending City’s record-breaking run of 18 straight Premier League victories, the Eagles were left to rue not securing a shock win after Ederson saved Luka Milivojevic’s late penalty.
Patrick van Aanholt had earlier tested Ederson in the first half and Andros Townsend wasted a golden opportunity to break the deadlock on 78 minutes.
“I’m very proud of the team’s performance,” said Roy Hodgson. “I’ve said to the players, if they continue that level of performance week after week, we’ve got a good chance of staying up.”
