Ahead of their trip to face Palace at Selhurst Park, Southampton have a lot of injury worries and they could be without seven first team players.

Foster has been struggling with a groin injury, but he’s on course to return to the Saints squad for the Brentford game at the weekend. Continue reading “PALACE EYE WIN AGAINST DEPLETED SAINTS”→
