Wilfried Zaha (90+1’) | 1 – 2
Crystal Palace substitution: Will Hughes replaces Eberechi Eze
Stuart Armstrong goes close twice in quick succession
Salisu's long-throw is nodded on by Romeu toward Armstrong, but the Scot can't keep his effort down.
Moments later the midfielder would try his luck again, but this time pulled his effort wide from just outside the area following a fast break.
Perraud defends Olise
Olise seems to be clear down the right, but opts for a cut-back instead of shooting, allowing Perraud to recover and clear the danger with a good challenge.
Southampton substitution: Mohamed Elyounoussi replaces Nathan Tella
Crystal Palace substitution: Michael Olise replaces Jeffrey Schlupp
Ward-Prowse blasts wide
Armstrong and Romeu combine down the right to set up Ward-Prowse with a shooting opportunity from just outside the box, but the captain pulls his effort wide to the relief of Palace's travelling support.

Long looks to double Southampton's advantage
Ward-Prowse's whipped free-kick makes its way to Romeu at the far post, the Spaniard subsequently finding Long whose effort from a tight angle is blocked out of play for a corner.
Palace enjoy their best chance of the game
Ayew goes on a skilful run down the right, firing a low ball across the area which is palmed away by a diving Forster. The ball doesn't deflect to safety, however, and instead falls to Schlupp who seems destined to score from close range with Forster absent from his net, but his powerful effort is bravely blocked by Bednarek.
Saints search for a second
Both Adams and Long try their luck from just outside the Palace box, but their efforts are both blocked.
Mateta battles in the air

Yellow Card for Joel Ward (Crystal Palace)

Ayew's header is palmed away by Forster
Trying to get level before the break, Eze's corner is whipped toward Ayew, but the Ghanaian's header is too central to beat Forster, who palms away confidently with his right glove.
Gallagher's cross is deflected over
Gallagher goes on a powerful run down the right and attempts to cross toward Mateta. Ward-Prowse is there to block the pass, but in doing so nearly deflects the ball past an unsuspecting Forster. Thankfully, it clears the crossbar for a corner.
Yellow Card for James McArthur (Crystal Palace)
McArthur cynically brings down Perraud in the middle of the park.
Mateta can't connect
The Palace striker has enjoyed some good chances already, but his latest, following Eze's good run, is spurned horribly as he swings a boot at the ball but doesn't connect from 12-yards.
Tella shoots from range
Tella steals the ball in midfield and drives forward before letting a low shot loose from range. His effort is powerful and accurate, but Guaita gets down well to save. An even contest, this.

Schlupp is proving a danger down the left, this time crossing onto the head of Gallagher, who should have done better from 12-yards.
