Our prediction for this Premier League match:
St. Mary’s Stadium will host Tuesday’s Premier League game between Southampton and Crystal Palace. The Saints suffered a 2-0 loss to Liverpool at the weekend, but despite the Anfield defeat, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops managed to secure the elite division survival. Both Danny Ings and Oriol Romeu are rated doubtful for the game, while both Ryan Bertrand and William Smallbone remain on the sidelines through injuries.
The Eagles, on the other hand, did well to beat Sheffield United in their last league match, with the team putting an end to their three-game losing run. The capital club obviously want to finish the season in style, and seeing that they are likely to go for a win in the postponed clash as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. All Ferguson, McArthur, Sakho, Tomkins, and Wickham are likely to miss the match with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Shane Long):
Shane Long is an Irish international striker who has so far made over 60 appearances for the Republic of Ireland national team, scoring more than 15 goals in the process. The forward began his professional career at Cork City, but only made one league appearance for the club ahead of the switch to Reading, where he would go on to spend next seven years.
During that time, Long established himself as one of the best Irish strikers plying their trade in England, and also went on to represent West Bromwich Albion, Hull City and Southampton.
Despite not exactly boasting an enviable goalscoring record for a centre forward, Long was always held in high regard by both managers and his peers, with his incredible work rate and never-say-die attitude winning him plenty of admirers. Long will also go down as one of the most prolific scorers in the history of the Republic of Ireland national team, which he represented at the Euro 2012 and Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Crystal Palace):
