Palace Recover To Draw With Southampton

Posted by

Despite two great goals in an exciting draw at Crystal Palace, Southampton’s Premier League losing streak stretched to six games.

Armando Broja blasted in from long range after James Ward-Prowse curled a free-kick into the top corner to put the visitors ahead at halftime.

Wilfried Zaha was given time to send a low shot past Willy Caballero after Saints had fallen down inside two minutes at Selhurst Park.

Palace were unable to continue on their strong start, with Odsonne Edouard squandering a golden opportunity to double Patrick Vieira’s side’s advantage.

However, in the second half, the striker, who set up Zaha for the opener, dragged an effort across goal, which Jordan Ayew turned in from a tight angle to earn the hosts a point.

As a result, Palace move up to 11th place, while Southampton remain in 15th place, six points above the relegation zone.
