Southampton head into the clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday on a poor run of form. They are without a win since the 4th of March, when they were able to beat Leicester City 1-0.
This has seen the Saints planted firmly at the bottom of the Premier League table with just 23 points to their name.
Relegation to the Championship seems inevitable at this point, but with four points separating them and 17th at present, there is still hope if the south coast outfit can start picking up wins in the final month of the campaign.
However, Crystal Palace’s form has taken an upturn since Roy Hodgson returned and they will be a tough nut to crack on Saturday.
