Both Crystal Palace and Southampton will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they lock horns at Selhurst Park in their Matchday 14 tie on Saturday evening. Crystal Palace suffered a damaging 3-0 defeat to Everton last time out in the Premier League, extending their inconsistency this season. They currently sit 13th on 13 points form 11 games, one point outside the top half. Therefore the Eagles will be looking to bounce back on Saturday as they hope to climb into the top half. They claimed four points off Southampton last season and will be hoping for better or at least the same this season. Southampton drew 1-1 with the league leader Arsenal last time out, extending their unbeaten run to three matches in the Premier League. They have claimed five points from that run, and they now sit 16th on 12 points, three points above the relegation zone and one outside the top half. A win on Saturday for the Saints it could see them climb as high as 10th in the league standings. They will be hoping to achieve that, and having had a lot of positives to take from their draw with the Gunners, Southampton should be confident.
