Crystal Palace 16/5 to beat Southampton in Tuesday’s Premier League showdown

Competition: Premier League

Market: Crystal Palace to beat Southampton

Odds: 16/5 @ Bet365

The new year brings even more footballing action as the players are back out on the pitch almost as soon as they came off it. Every side will know how important it is to start the year with a win, while the managers will be desperately trying to rotate their teams to keep the players as fresh as possible. With all of this in mind, Southampton host Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Southampton have been in very poor form this season and they are in danger of being forced into a relegation battle. After 21 games they have won four times, drawn eight and lost nine, while they have scored 20 goals and conceded 30 times. The 20 points they have collected sees them sitting just two points above the relegation zone, which has not been helped by the fact they have taken just two points from their last five games which is an awful record.

Crystal Palace have been indebted to the vision of Roy Hodgson, with the former-England manager guiding the side up the table from bottom-spot. After 21 games Palace have won four, drawn seven and lost 10 times, scoring 18 goals and conceding 32 times. The 19 points they have collected means they are just one point above the relegation zone, but a win would see them skyrocket up the table. Their 0-0 draw with Manchester City in their last game will give them a lot of confidence, and with all of this in mind, we are backing Crystal Palace with odds of 16/5 from Bet365.
