Southampton vs. Crystal Palace Team News, Injury Update:

With both Palace and Saints down in 16th and 17th just outside the Premier League relegation places, tonight’s game has a lot of importance for managers Roy Hodgson and Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Matt Targett should be returning to Hasenhuttl’s side after overcoming a knee injury, but the likes of Charlie Austin, Kayne Ramsey and Mario Lemina all remain sidelined with injury.

Palace are set to welcome back a number of players. Both Wayne Hennessey and Vicente Guaita are now fit and will challenge Julian Speroni for the starting goalkeeper role, while Bakary Sako could feature after returning to the club on loan.
