palace1718Crystal Palace are still searching for their first point of the new English Premier League season as they prepare to host Southampton in Saturday’s early kick off.

 

 

Palace Stats:

Palace lost 1-0 at Burnley last week and after 4 rounds of matches they are one of 2 sides yet to open their points account this season.

Their 4 defeats include home losses to Huddersfield (3-0) and then Swansea (2-0)

Palace are the only top flight side yet to score a Premier League goal this season

Palace won the corner count against Huddersfield 12-9 but the Swansea game delivered just 1 corner for each side

Bournemouth have run up a total of 5 yellow cards in their 2 home games, 4 of which came in the defeat to Swansea

Despite being appointed in pre-season Frank de Boer was sacked as coach in midweek and at the time of writing Roy Hodgson was favourite to replace him

Southampton Stats:

Southampton lost 2-0 at home to Watford last week and they remain on 5 points after 4 rounds of matches

The Saints have played just 1 away fixture, a 0-0 draw at Huddersfield

The Huddersfield game saw Southampton lose the corner count 5-4 and they picked up just the 1 booking

Both teams to score? (no) has been the way forward in 3 of 4 games involving Southampton.

Referee: Robert Madley
Matches 4, Yellows 16, Reds 4

2016 /17 Head to Head (Premier League Only)

The Betting

Match Result:

Crystal Palace 2/1

Draw 22/10

Southampton 15/10

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

A change in coach could spark a Palace revival or even just a goal but the stats point to a low scoring game and “Both Halves Under 1.5 Goals” gets the vote.

Bet: Both Halves Under 1.5 goals? (yes) at 11/10
