Reason For Southampton vs Crystal Palace Predictions

  • Southampton have lost six of their nine Premier League home games this season.
  • Crystal Palace have only lost six of their 18 Premier League away days in 2019, all of which came against top half opposition.
  • The Eagles have only see both teams score in 33% of their away games in the top flight this season.
  • Southampton are yet to keep a clean sheet at home in the league this season.

Improving Saints continue to struggle at St Mary’s

Ralph Hasenhuttl masterminded a wonderful Southampton performance on Boxing Day as they beat Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, with that performance mixing creative attacking play and a level of defensive grit very rarely shown by this Saints side.

This result, unexpected as it may be, continued Southampton’s promising recent form. They have now won four times in the past month, pushing them up to 14th in the table and leaving them five points clear of the relegation zone.

However, the Saints’ home form has been a real problem this season, epitomised by their 9-0 humiliation at the hands of Leicester in October. They have won just two Premier League home games, and these both came against teams struggling at the bottom of the table (Norwich and Watford). They may be improving, but they still couldn’t stop 17th placed West Ham taking three points off them in their last home match.

Impressive Palace excel on the road

Crystal Palace are familiar with Southampton’s recent troubles, but their own poor home record was improved on Boxing Day as they beat West Ham 2-1 thanks to a 90th minute winner from Jordan Ayew. Like their opponents, Palace find themselves in a spate of excellent form right now.

The Eagles have lost just one of their last six Premier League matches and are experiencing the novelty of not being involved in the relegation battle. They are currently 9th in the table, some eight points above the drop zone and only three adrift of the top six.

As we previously touched upon, Palace’s away record in recent times has been far better than their showings at Selhurst Park. They have lost just nine away games this season and only six of their 18 Premier League away days in 2019 have ended in defeat. Impressively, all of these defeats have come against teams currently in the top half of the table, so they’ll be confident coming into this match.

Contrasting home and away records give visitors the edge

Only 33% of Southampton’s Premier League points this season have been won on home soil, which puts them bottom of the home record in the top flight. This, combined with the visitor’s excellent away form, makes backing a Crystal Palace Win or Draw Double Chance look a great option.

Not only that, but we think Palace have a good chance of winning here. They have won nine league away games in 2019 and face a Southampton side that have lost six of their nine home matches this term. With Palace scoring 0.89 goals per away game and Southampton losing 1-0 to West Ham last time out though, we’re not expecting a thriller at St Mary’s and think a 1-0 correct score prediction is the way to go.
