After the opening seven Premier League games of the season, it was starting to look blindingly obvious that Crystal Palace were on their way to relegation, even at that very early stage of proceedings. The Eagles were looking extremely out of their depth and with no goals scored and no points on the board, theirs was predicted to be an utterly dreadful campaign.
Move on a few months and with Roy Hodgson at the helm, Crystal Palace are looking in much better shape with the side sitting outside the bottom three thanks to an excellent recent run. The Eagles have lost just one of their last ten matches - their sole defeat coming by a single-goal margin at home to Arsenal - and this run culminated in an excellent goal-less draw with runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City on New Year's Eve. Can this amazing form continue when Hodgson's men face Southampton on the south coast tonight? We believe that it can.

Southampton inflicted upon Manchester United more misery as they held the Red Devils to a goal-less draw in front of a pretty unimpressed Old Trafford, an excellent response to their 5-2 thrashing to Tottenham Hotspur just four days previous. The Saints remain dangerously close to the bottom three in the table however and just a point separates them from their midweek opponents Crystal Palace.
Indeed given that the Eagles have been much improved in recent weeks, we believe that they can continue their excellent form by taking something home from their trip to St Mary's. Indeed Southampton have managed just three home wins this term and while we don't envisage the Eagles running-out winners on the south coast, we envisage them picking up a point for their troubles.
