Team Focus: Southampton and Crystal Palace
The hosts from Southampton are only two points off Liverpool for fifth place and they should take over that spot pending they win tonight. That would leave them only one point from fourth spot, held by Manchester United. Both United and Liverpool play games later this week, but if they both lose, things could get interesting for the Saints.
In their last five games, the Saints have only won once and have only scored once. Their home record is also suffering, having won just two matches in their last eight at St. Mary’s. They should get back on their winning ways tonight though, but don’t count Crystal Palace out just yet.
Under Alan Pardew, Crystal Palace have won four out of seven with a total 13 points. Before he took over the team struggled, only winning three times in 20 appearances. Palace is looking very fit on the road, winning all five away matches under his leadership.
