Nairabet Preview: Southampton - Crystal Palace: Expect goals on the south coast”

The festive period has not been kind to Southampton, but they have a chance to end this busy stretch on a positive note with three points Tuesday against Crystal Palace at St. Mary's Stadium.

"But Crystal Palace are getting better, improving a lot, for both teams it will be a massive game". However, striker Charlie Austin is suspended and remains injured from Saints' pre-Christmas draw against Huddersfield Town. The south coast outfit are (1.35) to either win or draw. After 21 games, only one point separates the two clubs in the Premier League table. Since coming back up to the top flight in 2012-13, Southampton have won seven matches against Palace, more than they have against any other opposition.

As for Palace, the Eagles were within touching distance of pulling off a monumental upset on Sunday afternoon.

In their last game, Palace did the unthinkable and ended Manchester City's 18-game winning streak, holding the Citizens to a scoreless draw. Never the less, the Eagles earnt themselves an eye-catching point and continued their fine run of form. Although they may have drastically turned their fortunes around under the former England boss, the southeast London side only remain a single point above the drop zone.

Crystal Palace are waiting on late fitness tests from three key players in Ruben Loftus-Cheek, James McArthur and Jeffrey Schlupp, all of whom could appear tonight. Jason Puncheon and Scott Dann both suffered injuries against Manchester City on New Year's Eve and are absent, joining Mamadou Sakho on the sidelines. It is Southampton's longest unbeaten home run against another Premier League side.

In the first meeting between Southampton and Crystal Palace this season, the Saints won 1-0 at Selhurst Park, with Steven Davis scoring the lone goal.

In contrast, Palace have only lost one of their last 10 Premier League games and could equal a Premier League club record of five consecutive away matches without defeat.

They are quoted at (4.05) with the same betting firm to bag all three points.
