Crystal Palace vs Southampton LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from fixture

Follow live coverage as Crystal Palace face Southampton in the Premier League today.

Patrick Vieira made just one change from the Crystal Palace side that faced Everton, with Jeffrey Schlupp coming in for Jordan Ayew as they hosted Southampton.

Nathaniel Clyne was available for the first time since he was stretchered off against Chelsea on October 1, and started on the bench.

Arsenal loanee Ainsley Maitland-Niles was back in the squad for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Saints after sitting out last weekend’s draw with his parent club.

Hasenhuttl also made one change, with Che Adams back in the starting line-up and Adam Armstrong starting from the bench.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today’s game in the live blog below:

GREAT CHANCE! It’s a lovely backheel flick from Eze to lift it over his shoulder before touching it through to Zaha. He whips a low cross into the six-yard box and Edouard stretches but can’t get the touch he needs to put it into the empty net.

Perraud slips which allows Ward to pick out Olise in acres of space down the right. His first thought is to slide it into the box for Edouard, but he’s caught on his heels and Bazunu comes out to collect it.

BLOCK! It’s good work from Palace down their right again, with Schlupp holding off Salisu this time to turn before bursting down the wing. He squares it to Milivojevic in the middle and he turns it towards goal first time, but Caleta-Car makes a great block.

Palace’s high press is causing Southampton a few problems here, with the visitors unable to get out of their own half. Olise wins it back and tries to feed it through to Ward, but Armstrong just nudges him off the ball.

There’s a nervy moment at the back as Bazunu takes a heavy touch at his far post and Eze races forward to close him down. He manages to clear his lines just in time, but gifts possession straight back to Palace.

CHANCE! Zaha is tripped just outside the box by Elyounoussi and Milivojevic steps up to take the resulting free-kick. He’s aiming for the near top corner, but his curling shot sails just over the bar.
