Crystal Palace XI vs Southampton: Starting lineup and team news today

Jack Rosser

Crystal Palace have had little time to celebrate a hard won point at champions Manchester City as they focus on the visit of Southampton tonight.

Manager Roy Hodgson has limited options when it comes to rotation despite such a quick turnaround, and sticks with the same XI which got the 2-2 draw at the Etihad.

Six senior players are still missing for the Eagles, with suspended captain Luka Milivojevic among them.

Max Meyer has returned from his injury to offer Hodgson some small relief, though after such an impressive performance from his team-mates at the Etihad, the German only makes the bench.

Fresh from his debut goal, Cenk Tosun leads the line once more.

With Palace out of the FA Cup, come Wednesday morning Hodgson will have a 10-day break to help get those nearing a return back to full fitness.

Crystal Palace: Guaita, Kelly, Tomkins, Cahill, Riedewald, Ayew, Kouyate, McArthur, McCarthy, Zaha, Tosun

Subs: Ward, Dann, Meyer, Hennessey, Wickham, McGregor, Pierrick

Southampton: McCarthy, Cedric, Stephens, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Redmond, Long, Obafemi
