Southampton will face Premier League rivals Crystal Palace in FA Cup third round

Crystal Palace suffered a devastating 4-0 thumping at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur this week thanks to goals from Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and Matt Doherty. However, they will hope to bounce back to form in time to take on Southampton in the FA Cup third round this weekend.

Southampton, however, are also suffering their own embarrassments as they are currently sitting at the bottom of the Premier League following their latest defeat to Nottingham Forest at home last night (Wednesday 4 January). They have now lost their last five fixtures wining just three out of 18 Premier League games so far this season.

This will be the first weekend the Premier League and Championship sides enter the FA Cup with Liverpool the current holders of the trophy following their penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea in 2022. Palace reached the semi-finals of the tournament last year, losing out to the Blues 2-0, while the Saints reached the quarter-finals where they lost 4-1 to Manchester City.
