St.Marys stadium. Southampton
Saints look to get the new season underway! Lets hope with 3 points against Crystal Palace.
'Playing centre-back is nothing new to me, I have done it before and had a few games there is pre-season to get back into it' Chris Makin on Southamptons official website
Burleys defence will be very make-shift! A midfield player at right back, and a full back in the middle. Chris Makin will be vital for saints as he will play in that troubled centre back area. But he's done it before, but not in a while!
Bartosz Bialkowski should keep his place in goal, Jermaine Wright to play at right back, Makin plays centre back, debuts for Vignal, Hammill and Safri. Saints have the 3 best strikers in the league to choose the front two!
This could be his last game for saints, he is the dangerman! He can turn defence into attack in one ball for saints! He will be missed if he moves on.
Ifill and Fletcher out, Kennedy a doubt for Palace.
The dodgey keeper! Well he has had bad moments. But looks to start with Kiraly moving to Burnley
Saints took 4 points from Palace last season.
A win at Selhurst thanks to goals from jones and Rasiak. Saints should have won at St.Marys, A dubious red card for Jones and keeper Flinders should have been sent off for handball but ref Beeby didn't know what he was doing!
Lee Probert. (Wilts)
Saints should win this one 3-1, the defence aren't the finished article but saints should still bang home goals infront of about 26000 at St.Marys!
Saints then play the Posh in the cup, on monday! This game is live on Sky!
