Crystal Palace climbed back towards midable with an emphatic 3-1 victory over Everton this weekend, ending a series of four games without a win in the process.
Next up is a visit from another struggling side, Southampton. Fortunately for Patrick Vieira, he does not have too many fitness issues to contend with for this one.
This is how the boss could line up.

Vicente Guaita (GK) – There are now five games without a bounce for Guaita.
Joel Ward (RB) – Ward has played every minute of every game he was available for. He is a guaranteed starter.
James Tomkins (CB) – Andersen is back in training, but he will fight to displace Tomkins after his goal this weekend.
Marc Guehi (CB) – Another permanent match from Vieira’s team, Guehi has impressed during his time in the Premier League.
Tyrick Mitchell (LB) – The only natural left back in the squad, Mitchell’s position is secure.

Will Hughes (DM) – Hughes had to wait a while for his first start but took full advantage of his chance against Everton and deserves a second chance.
Conor Gallagher (CM) – Superstar Gallagher has been outstanding during his time at the Palace. As close to a guaranteed starter as you can find.
Cheikhou Kouyate (CM) – Kouyate’s energy combines perfectly with Gallagher and the pair is a force to be reckoned with when they are in shape.

Michael Olise (RW) – Jordan Ayew is the favorite for this role, but with so many matches going on, Olise should step in for this one.
Odsonne Edouard (ST) – The goals have dried up for Edouard but he should still keep his place ahead of Christian Benteke until further notice.
Wilfried Zaha (LW) – He’s still Palace’s talisman, but Zaha is another who needs to increase his goal commitment soon.
