Crystal Palace confounded all expectations and form to end their six match losing streak in the PL with a 3-0 win over Southampton at Selhurst Park.
Southampton's over-reliance on Charlie Austin up top was evident as they lacked cutting edge again. At the other end, uncharacteristic mistakes in defence cost them. After no shots in the first 20 mins, Benteke went close with a header from a Zaha cross before converting an early Christmas gift from Fraser Forster who missed a clearance due to a bobble. Almost instantly, the Eagles soared 2 ahead. This time it was the Saints defence who misstepped, leaving James Tomkins totally unmarked to poke in a Ledley cross from point-blank range. Southampton dominated possession in the second half and went closest through a Van Dijk header which cannnoned off the crossbar but Palace got their third from a corner which the Saint failed to deal with. Puncheon pulled back to Benteke who made no mistake for his brace. Palace were deserving winners, they ironed out many of their defensive kinks which were the cause of so much of their trouble this term. Dec 3 - 12:01 PM
