Southampton have won four of their last seven games in the Premier League and can add to that tally tonight against Crystal Palace.
The Saints slipped down to 17th following Tuesday’s results but had the weekend off and Ralph Hasenhuttl will have spent it working hard on his team’s shape.
Palace were also negatively affected by Newcastle’s shock win over Manchester City but were impressive in Sunday’s 2-0 FA Cup victory against Tottenham.
The Eagles are an unpredictable team, however, often raising their game for the big sides but failing to produce against those around them, as seen in September’s 2-0 home defeat to Southampton.
This is likely to be a more open affair but I still fancy the hosts to take the honours.
I do not normally like sitting on the fence but I have time for the price on Watford getting something from tonight’s trip to Wembley.
Tottenham’s domestic cup hopes are over for the season and confidence is likely to be low within the camp.
Son Heung-Min is back from the Asian Cup but fatigue could prove a factor against a team who are enjoying a decent campaign under Javi Gracia.
They also won 2-1 when the pair met at Vicarage Road earlier in the season and, while that was their only win in the last 15 between the pair, the Hornets could sneak a point or more this evening.
