Crystal Palace vs Southampton Prediction

August 31, 2018

Looking at Crystal Palace vs Southampton Prediction, Crystal Palace play host to Southampton at Selhurst Park.

 

Crystal Palace started the new season in an impressive way. They beat Fulham 2-0 at Craven Cottage Stadium. However, they have really been hit hard in the past few weeks.

 

First they lost 2-0 to Liverpool at home. The 2-0 score itself is actually a defeat that is not too disappointing, because the Reds are one of the champions favorites this season. However, they again swallowed defeat in the next game. Watford subverted them 2-1. These results are clearly very alarming, because on paper, the strength of the two teams looks quite balanced.

 

They may have reaped 2 negative results in the opening 3 matches. However, the defeat did not make the Eagles fans feel worried, because their pride team had shown a better performance than last season.


On the other hand, Southampton has a lot of things to worry about. The visitors managed to avoid relegation last season, but so far Mark Hughes's appointment as permanent manager has not had a significant impact, because at the start of this new season the Saints had not won at all.

 

They started the new season with a goalless draw at home against Burnley. In the next game they lost 2-1 to Everton, and what was even more concerning was their 2-1 defeat at home to Leicester City, which was not reinforced by Jamie Vardy. Their results have made many people think that Soton has now lost stability in their defense.

 

Away, Southampton have only won 2 of their last 18 games in the English Premier League, and have also lost 9 times in that period. On the other hand, Crystal Palace won 3 consecutive home wins in the English Premier League, before their defeat to Liverpool. That record has made Crystal Palace a favorite in this fight.
