Crystal Palace – Southampton : Preview & Prediction
Since returning to the Premier League in 2013, Crystal Palace has been playing maintenance or midfield, nothing more. Last year again, the club finished 14th, 9 points ahead of the first relegation, but also 11 behind in the first part of the table. With the transfer of Eberechi Eze from QPR and the imminent arrival of Michy Batshuayi on loan, the club hope to do better this season.
Southampton had a complicated start to the season last year before recovering for the end of the championship. Surprising third away, the Saints showed a certain strength, which will have to be repeated this season in order to finish in the first part of the table.
