Comments:

Prior to this match the Saints had won the last five straight meetings against the Eagles in all competitions. They came in to the tie in third position in the Premier League and unbeaten in eight games in all competitions. This result meant that Southampton have conceded more than twice for only the second time this season. Southampton have now lost 17 of their last 24 FA Cup matches against top flight opposition. Florin Gardos was booked in the second minute of added time in the first half.

Comments:

Scott Dann now has two goals and an own goal in two FA Cup appearances this season. Crystal Palace have now only won six of their last 29 matches in the FA Cup against top flight opposition. They were now unbeaten in six games in all competitions for the first time since April - May 2013. Palace had now won all four games under new manager Alan Pardew, a former Saints boss.
