    Crystal Palace hoping to strengthen survival chances against Southampton?

    Probable Lineups:

    southampton crystal palaceCrystal Palace (4-1-4-1): Speroni, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Parr, Ince, Joe Ledley, Dikgacoi, Bolasie, Murray

    Palace got a respectable point last weekend against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium and Tony Pullis could use a similar lineup for the visit of Southampton.  The Eagle are also quite solid at home, so expect a rigid display against an attacking Saints side.

    Southampton (4-4-1-1): Boruc, Chambers, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw, Lallana, Wanyama, Schneiderlin, Rodriguez, Davis, Lambert

    Luke Shaw made his debut for the English national team against Denmark with Adam Lallana also featuring.  Mauricio Pochettino shouldn’t make much changes, even if they lost 3-0 to a high flying Liverpool.  He can also be buoyed by the return of Gaston Ramirez, who could fill the ‘in the hole’ position if Kelvin Davis’ injury sustains.

    It’s hard to look beyond Adam Lallana.  The Saints captain has been in great form this season and after two blanks, he could be back on track with a goal or an assist in this fixture.
