Saints Vs Palace

Saints look to get the new season underway! Lets hope with 3 points against Crystal Palace.

Vital Quotes:

'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

Southampton Team News:

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!

Player to watch: Kenwyne Jones

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.

Crystal Palace Team News:

Ifill and Fletcher out, Kennedy a doubt for Palace.

Player to watch: Julian Speroni

The dodgey keeper! Well he has had bad moments. But looks to start with Kiraly moving to Burnley

Match Facts & Stats

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!

Ref Watch:

Lee Probert. (Wilts)

Match Prediction:

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!

Next Fixtures:

Saints then play the Posh in the cup, on monday! This game is live on Sky!

Well home to Man Utd beats any fixture you'll have. So what if we get stuffed, nothing compares to your current embarrasments.
