Dembele must ignore lure of big clubs

Sofiane Boufal indifference sums up Southampton's loss at Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace comfortably beat Southampton 3-0 to give Alan Pardew a much needed win.
Claude Puel says Southampton's efforts in the second half weren't sufficient to make up for their deficit.

Southampton were brought crashing to reality following their EFL Cup triumph over Arsenal as they slumped to their heaviest defeat of manager Claude Puel's tenure, losing 3-0 at crisis club Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Christian Benteke's double (aided by some shocking goalkeeping from Fraser Forster) and James Tomkins' finish from a corner left Puel with a face like thunder in the dugout. The managerl did his best to shift the blame from his players by bemoaning the state of the Selhurst Park...

Saints look to deepen Pardew gloom but remain indebted to Palace boss

Alan Pardew
Former Southampton boss Alan Pardew welcomes his old side to Crystal Palace this weekend.

The irony will not be lost on Alan Pardew if former employers Southampton see him out of a job as Crystal Palace manager on Saturday.

But if their side do inflict the final, fatal blow on Pardew's loosening grip on the Selhurst Park hot-seat, Southampton supporters should remember the vital role he played in their rise up the divisions before allowing themselves to revel in his misfortune.

Whenever the subject of Southampton's remarkable climb from the foot of League One back to the Premier League...

Premier League summit showdown as Manchester City face leaders Chelsea

Franck Leboeuf says the outcome in Manchester City vs. Chelsea could be a turning point in the title race.
Franck Leboeuf says the outcome in Manchester City vs. Chelsea could be a turning point in the title race.

It's a massive match this Saturday as leaders Chelsea host third-placed Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. 

Antonio Conte's men have enjoyed a strong campaign so far while Pep Guardiola's men are just one point behind following a run of seven wins in a row. Liverpool, who travel to Bournemouth on Sunday, will be paying close attention to events at the Bridge as they could capitalise on any slip ups from either side.

Manchester United travel to Everton in desperate need of a victory having...

Crystal Palace's once-proud back line now struggling for confidence

With the worst record this calendar year, are Crystal Palace underperforming or have they been unlucky?
Crystal Palace have now lost six in a row and Alan Pardew is certainly feeling the pressure.
Swansea earned their first win of the season, and Craig Burley feels Alan Pardew may be sacked come Monday.

If there's an overriding lesson to be learned from Crystal Palace's defeat to Swansea, it's that even a team with quality players can be affected by a loss of confidence, and that reduced confidence can have a viciously recurring theme. As defeats have piled up, so has the pressure on the players tasked with turning that form around.

Palace's players repeatedly lost their focus last week, especially defensively but also in terms of doing the basics. While Wilfried Zaha put Palace in the lead...

Cohesive Saints leave Arsenal in their wake en route to EFL Cup semifinals

Southampton handily knocked Arsenal out of the EFL Cup, the FC panel believe Arsenal is secretly pleased with this result.

LONDON -- Three points on Southampton's 2-0 EFL Cup win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.

1. Excellent Saints leave Arsenal in their wake

In the wider scheme of things, Arsenal exiting the EFL Cup at the quarterfinal stage will not be a significant glitch in their season. Yet it's the nature of their defeat, 2-0 to Southampton at the Emirates, that will be of concern.

In the end, the score line flattered an Arsenal side for whom "poor" seems an inadequate description: Southampton...

Southampton academy strikes gold again as Josh Sims stuns Everton

Southampton's Josh Sims was delighted with his first team debut.

Ronald Koeman was given an unhappy return to St Mary's as Southampton beat the Dutchman's Everton 1-0 on Sunday, thanks to an academy kid he had never even heard of.

Josh Sims ran Everton ragged with his pace and super technique, and poked a cross to Charlie Austin for a debut assist inside the first 42 seconds.

It was Austin's ninth goal of the season as up-tempo Southampton got their mojo back after flat games against Liverpool and Sparta Prague.


Sims became the latest youth player off...
