Southampton sit bottom of the table four points from safety and still have to play Arsenal, Newcastle, Brighton and Liverpool so victory here is crucial. Crystal Palace have won back-to-back games under Roy Hodgson and are on 33 points six above the bottom three.

It is just two points from their last five for the Saints who if they are to haul themselves out of trouble must improve on a poor run of just one victory in 12 at their own place. The Eagles only have three road wins all season but will be buoyed by that 5-1 success at Elland Road.

The reverse fixture came at the end of October with Palace winning that one 1-0 thanks to a 38th minute goal from Odsonne Edouard. These sides also met in the FA Cup Third Round with Saints winning that day 2-1 although both teams had different faces in the dugout.

Southampton vs Crystal Palace match stats

This game is a must win for Southampton who know they are bottom and have tougher games to come. They can take comfort from some of their early play against Man City before they were steamrolled. Palace grabbed five last weekend and look capable of goals on the break. Backing both teams to score in what could be an open affair looks the best play.

Michael Olise was excellent last weekend against Leeds creating three goals for his teammates. He is priced at 5/2 with Sky Bet to get at least one assist in this one and that looks worth taking.
