Crystal Palace can bounce back by beating sorry Southampton

Wilfried Zaha is the obvious attacking threat

Successive defeats have dragged Crystal Palace into the bottom half but the Eagles have given a good account of themselves in all of their matches and they should be confident of beating Southampton at Selhurst Park.

Wilfried Zaha is the obvious attacking threat for Palace but they possess a decent supporting cast and their defence, marshalled by Mamadou Sakho, looks strong.

The Eagles look candidates for a top-half finish and they are likely to finish much higher than Southampton, who have taken one point from nine and look possible relegation candidates.
