On Saturday at Selhurst Park Crystal Palace host Southampton (Watch live online, 10 a.m. ET via NBC Sports Live Extra) in a clash the Eagles will be desperate to win.
Sitting just two points above the relegation zone, Tony Pulis‘ side will see this match as the perfect opportunity to climb away from the bottom three.
Palace have never beaten Saints in the PL, but this may seem like their best chance as the South Coast club are comfortable in ninth spot and don’t have much to play for the rest of this season.
In team news Palace start with Glenn Murray up top and go with Jason Puncheon and Yannick Bolasie out wide. Saints make one change as former Palace full back Nathaniel Clyne comes in for Chambers at right back.
Crystal Palace: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Moxey, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Ledley, Puncheon, Bolasie, Murray. Subs: Hennessey, Gabbidon, Bannan, Thomas, Ince, Gayle, Jerome
