- Saints have conceded just three times in their last six Premier League meetings against Crystal Palace, keeping three clean sheets.

- Alan Pardew has lost four of his last five Premier League contests against Southampton (W1).

- Alan Pardew has lost his last six Premier League matches; he's never lost seven in a row before as a manager in the top-flight (also six with Newcastle in April 2014).

- Crystal Palace have conceded a league-high 13 goals from set-pieces this season (inc. pens); two more than they let in last term (11).

- If only goals scored by English players counted, Southampton would be top of the Premier League this season on 25 points, with Crystal Palace in second (24 points).
