Both teams to score at Southampton vs Crystal Palace 10/11 for Saturday’s Premier League contest

Competition: Premier League

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365

Hoping to extend on their recent purple patch, Southampton will welcome Crystal Palace to St. Mary’s on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, putting in a season-best display and picking up a 2-0 win away at top-four contenders Chelsea on Boxing Day, Southampton are enjoying quite the resurge since their 1-0 defeat against West Ham earlier in the month. Now landing back-to-back victories and finding a route out of the drop zone, Head Coach Ralph Hasenhüttl has seen his side lose just a pair of their last six Premier League appearances. With the mood on the South Coast quickly on the rise and appearing to make a string of improvements, Saturday’s hosts have bagged five goals in their last two outings and will be confident of ending their year on a high.

As for the visitors, showing some much-needed resolve and battling from behind to snatch a 2-1 win over London rivals West Ham on Boxing Day, Palace have continued on an eye-catching end to the year. Despite dealing with an ever-growing list of injury concerns, former England boss Roy Hodgson has seen his side lose just a single top-flight matchup over the past five weeks. Also appearing to show some much-needed improvements in the final third against the Hammers earlier in the week, we’re backing a lively encounter on the South Coast this weekend.
