Team News:

Southampton need to start picking up some form, having only accrued a point from their opening three matches.

Saints’ Danish midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg could be set to return, having served his suspension when missing the League Cup clash against Brighton.

Meanwhile, Southampton striker Danny Ings faces a late fitness test after training all week with a bad blister.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson could welcome back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who served his one-match suspension midweek. James Tomkins and Pape Souare are also back in contention after overcoming their respective injuries.
