Predicted Crystal Palace and Southampton line-ups - Schneiderlin to return

Crystal Palace Selhurst Park

Match to be played on Friday 26th December 2014 at 15:00. Venue: Selhurst Park, London.

Crystal Palace have one of the most difficult Boxing Day fixtures as they take on a resurgent Southampton side, which is fresh off of a big win against Everton.

Palace are under pressure to put points on the board over Christmas and New Year as they look to pull clearer of the bottom three and up towards the middle of the Premier League table.

Palace will be looking to react in the right manner after they were well beaten by title contenders Manchester City in their last game.

What will please Southampton most about their performance against Everton is that it came with so many established first team stars unavailable through injury and suspension.

It also ended a poor run of results with their last win before the Everton game coming towards the start of November.

Here are the teams that Neil Warnock and Ronald Koeman could go with.

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Kelly, Dann, Hangeland, Ward, Jedinak, Puncheon, McArthur, Ledley, Bolasie, Campbell

Southampton: Forster, Clyne, Alderweireld, Yoshida, Bertrand, Schneiderlin, Reed, Davis, Ward-Prowse, Long, Pelle
