Bogey team

The Eagles have become something of a bogey team for Southampton in the last couple of years – winning four of the last seven matches in all competitions between the two teams – including a 3-0 win at Selhurst Park in December which included a nightmare moment for goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

That success was their only one in a difficult run of 15 Premier League games in mid-season that saw Alan Pardew given the boot.

Palace have also won twice at St Mary’s in the FA Cup in recent seasons, and they will be confident of picking up another victory on the south coast on Wednesday.
