McCarthy ready for Crystal Palace reunion; Bertrand returns

However, James McArthur levelled things up as Palace finished strongly, before Milivojevic snared a massive win for the Eagles.

Saints are just two places above resurgent Palace with Mauricio Pellegrino's men failing to win any of their last eight matches - collecting just four points in those eight games.

Long almost fired Saints in front after just 15 seconds, but he cleared the bar with his attempt after meeting Dusan Tadic's knock down.

They had already consistently probed when Oriol Romeu played a square ball across midfield to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who in space from 25 yards unleashed a powerful strike the diving Wayne Hennessey did well to tip over.

Saints came close to opening the scoring in the first minute after Shane Long was put through on goal, but the forward blasted his effort well over the bar.

The babies were born healthy and hassle-free, with the only wow-factor about their birth being the timing. Doctors said the girl was slightly breached, so she had to be delivered via caesarean section.

Long ended his long drought in front of goal in emphatic fashion as Ryan Bertrand's cross missed everyone, then Jeremy Pied picked out Long to hammer home the opener.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Fosu-Mensah, Kelly, Tomkins, Schlupp (Sako 64), Townsend, McArthur, Milivojevic, Cabaye (c) (van Aanholt 46), Zaha, Benteke.

Crystal Palace avoided any controversy this time and did their chances of staying up a world of good with a first top-flight triumph at Southampton since 1990 and an in-pomp Ian Wright.

Palace were already showing signs of fatigue - perhaps owing largely to the energy used holding Premier League leaders Manchester City to a 0-0 draw a little over 48 hours earlier - and then Southampton scored and delight for the Republic of Ireland striker.
