Palace may run out of steam at Southampton

Southampton star Nathan Redmond
1 of 1

Premier League
7.45pm Wednesday

Crystal Palace worked incredibly hard for their 2-1 victory at Chelsea and may struggle to put in the same effort at Southampton, where a first defeat in five is on the cards.

Palace spent most of the match at Stamford Bridge on the back foot and are likely to be in defensive mode against Saints, who are one of the best passing sides in the league.

The key is defending properly but the absence of injured centre-back Scott Dann is a big blow and Saints can take advantage.

Recommendation
Southampton
1pt 17-20 Betfair, Betway
