The upcoming fixture of Southampton and Crystal Palace is to be held at St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton is all set to be an explosion. Who will win the match is a different question altogether because both the teams have enough firepower to make a blast on the ground. However, things are looking in favor of the home team Southampton as they would try to take control of the match from the start with the likes of Lemina, Boufal, and Gabbiadini. Moreover, Southampton is currently ranked the fifteenth team on the points table with four wins and bagging 20 points whereas the away team has also registered four wins in the tournament and managed to settle at the 17th position on the league table with just 19 points.
Given the performances of both the teams in their last six matches in the English Premier League 2017-2018, it is expected that Crystal Palace will have the last laugh on Wednesday (IST). For Southampton, it is expected that their players would try to contain the situation and would like to register their fifth win of the tournament. After drawing with Manchester United in their last match Southampton would try to continue to do anything to gain more points. Southampton’s goalie Mccarthy would try to keep as many shots as possible, away from the goalpost.

Southampton bounced back from their 5-2 loss at Tottenham with a 0-0 draw at Manchester United and they’ll look to draw confidence from the latter result for the welcome of Crystal Palace. Similarly, Crystal Palace will have been boosted by their 0-0 draw with Manchester City and have now lost just one of their last 10 league outings. Conversely, they’ve won only three of those 10 matches and have lost their last three visits to Southampton.There are unlikely to be goals in this one, with the spoils expected to be shared at St. Mary’s.
