Crystal Palace get the new 2020/2021 Premier League season underway with a clash against Southampton

Crystal Palace v Southampton live on TV and online

Crystal Palace open what could be a tricky Premier League season when they take on Southampton in the capital this Saturday.


Palace endured a nightmare summer where they lost all but two of their games after Project Restart.

But with the new arrival of Eberechi Eze from QPR, there is hope Roy Hodgson’s men can pick up points from their early Premier League fixtures.

Southampton are first up for the Eagles, with manager Ralph Hasenhuttl keen to kick on from last season’s 11th-place finish.

Saints have made just two permanent signings during the summer transfer window but will nevertheless test their hosts here.

Crystal Palace v Southampton team news

Crystal Palace: New signing Eberechi will undergo a late fitness test to see if he is ready to make his Palace debut.

Hodgson still has plenty of injury issues hanging over from last season too, with Gary Cahill, Christian Benteke, Mamadou Sakho and Patrick van Aanholt all out.

Southampton: Kyle Walker-Peters made his move to Southampton permanent this summer and should start in defence, while centre-back Mohammed Salisu may get a run-out following his £11m arrival from Valladolid.

Danny Ings should start up top for boss Hasenhuttl, who has been blessed with very few injuries in pre-season.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace v Southampton

Palace will be desperate to put their miserable summer behind them but Saints will come to Selhurst Park fancying three points here.

Hasenhuttl has enjoyed a positive pre-season and Southampton will be looking to break into the top 10 this term.

We can expect Southampton to take the game to their hosts here and they could be in front before the break.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace 0-1 Southampton
