Southampton

Keeper tipped to keep his place

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Simon Barlow

Alex McCarthy looks set to retain his place in goal as Southampton host Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

McCarthy recorded a clean sheet against Manchester United on Saturday after manager Mauricio Pellegrino dropped out-of-form Fraser Forster.

Saints are still without striker Charlie Austin who is both suspended and affected by a hamstring injury.

Left-back Ryan Bertrand (hamstring) could be back in contention.

Provisional squad: McCarthy, Forster, Taylor, Hoedt, Stephens, Yoshida, Gardos, Pied, McQueen, Romeu, Bednarek, Bertrand, Lemina, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Davis, Boufal, Tadic, Redmond, Long, Gabbiadini.
