Southampton

 By Chris Rann

With Chelsea looming, positive result at Palace a must for Saints

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman confirms left winger Dusan Tadic is set to return from a groin strain at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

After weeks of drained confidence both on the pitch and in the stands for Southampton, they will head to Selhurst Park on Boxing Day with renewed vigour after their convincing win over Everton.

With question marks over squad depth, manager Ronald Koeman has moved to start his January business early by securing winger/forward Eljero Elia on loan from Werder Bremen. Koeman will be hoping his countryman can use the opportunity in the Premier League to get his career back on track and live up to...

Southampton Report Card: The Saints' Premier League season so far

Southampton emphatically brought an end to their run of five successive losses in all competitions by beating Everton 3-0 at St Mary's.

With the Premier League season edging towards its halfway point, who has starred for Southampton and can Ronald Koeman keep the Saints challenging towards the top of the league, or will they fall away? Here's a look at how Koeman's men have fared so far.

Your Season So Far -- In A Sentence

Given the summer of discontent, beyond our wildest dreams -- but the recent blip is a worry.

Highlight

The 8-0 massacre of Sunderland was as close to a perfect team performance as you will see anywhere...

Premier League's Best XI outside the established order

Prem XI
ESPN FC's Best of the Rest.

Some facts get quoted so often they become footballing cliches. Seamus Coleman cost 60,000 pounds. Rickie Lambert used to work in a beetroot factory. And now there is the newest: Wilfried Bony has scored more Premier League goals than anyone else in 2014.

There are circumstances to explain what, at first, seemed a strange statistic. Luis Suarez, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez spent only part of the calendar year in England. Daniel Sturridge and Sergio Aguero missed significant parts of it because...

Harrison Reed stars as Saints end their slide with an emphatic win vs. Everton

Southampton rebounded from a series of poor matches with a comfortable 3-nil win over Everton.

That as they say, is more like it. I'll be honest: I was fearing the worst before Saturday's game with Everton. With the Saints suffering through a horrific run without several key players -- Morgan Schneiderlin and Victor Wanyama were both suspended while Dusan Tadic, Jack Cork and Jay Rodriguez are all currently injured -- it felt like the Toffees would potentially have an easy afternoon. How wrong I was.

Good managers make the best of what they have available, and Ronald Koeman did just that...
