FULL-TIME: Saints 1-1 Crystal Palace
Danny Ings ensured Saints earned a well-deserved point at St Mary's, capitalising on a mistake by Martin Kelly. James Tomkins had put Palace ahead after 49 minutes, following VAR's decision to overturn what would have been the opener curtesy of Max Mayer in the first-half. It's seven points from a possible nine now for Saints 😇

This was the reason danny didn't play against Chelsea, because I knew two games in three days with his history was too high a risk for me. It is the same for Stu, who was out for a long time and played nearly 90 minutes last game, so he starts on the bench."Ralph HasenhüttlSouthampton Fc Manager

We're 🔙 in SO14 for Saints vs Crystal Palace in the Premier League! It’s very much a case of carrying on the momentum for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men, who are looking for a third consecutive win for the first time this season. Palace will similarly be looking to build on a recent positive result; their late win at home over West Ham was only their second of the month.
