Will Hughes is a doubt. Jack Butland, Nathaniel Clyne, James McArthur, Nathan Ferguson and Chris Richards are injured.

The Saints will likely be without defenders Armel Bella-Kotchap, Tino Livramento and Kyle Walker-Peters. Romeo Lavia will be assessed and Ainsley Maitland-Niles is available after missing last weekend’s game against parent club Arsenal.

Match Preview

After a solid start to the Premier League season, Crystal Palace suffered their most disappointing result of the campaign last weekend when they lost 3-0 to Everton at Goodison Park.

Patrick Vieira is hoping for a positive reaction from his side in their home game against Southampton, but the lack of cruelty remains a problem for the Eagles, who have won just three of their opening 11 league games.

Both teams have been hampered by injuries this season, but a depleted Saints defense could perhaps build on last weekend’s encouraging 1-1 draw with leaders Arsenal.

They picked up another decent point in their previous home game against West Ham and won 1-0 at Bournemouth between those two draws, so there are signs that Ralph Hasenhuttl may have weathered another storm at St Mary’s.

Neither side is bristling with attacking intentions at the moment, so the 13-5 on the draw looks appealing.

Key stat

Two of Southampton’s last three games have ended 1-1.
