Saints' youngsters return from the international break looking to return to winning ways as they play their first home match since mid-March.
Last time out, they fell to defeat on the road against Chelsea as a very youthful side were narrowly behind at the break before ultimately losing 5-2.
It's been a positive international break for several Under-18s regulars however, most notably as Joe Andrews helped Wales qualify for the Under-17s EUROs for the first time in their history.
Crystal Palace have enjoyed a positive season as they sit in third place in the league table, level on points with Fulham in second place.
The young Eagles are unbeaten in two games after a stunning 5-1 win over Leicester City followed a dramatic 4-3 win over Arsenal.
Earlier this season, Saints were narrowly beaten on the road against Palace in an end to end 3-2 defeat.
After only 20 minutes the scores were tied at 2-2, with the Eagles finding a winner in the second half.
