C PALACE 0-2 SOUTHAMPTON
Hojbjerg's first goal of his Premier League career brings an end to an enthralling clash! It's a third successive defeat for Palace, but for Southampton it's their first win of the season.
GOAL! C PALACE 0-2 SOUTHAMPTON (Hojbjerg, 90+2)
It's all over! With Palace sending plenty of players forward, Hojbjerg breaks beyond the halfway line, drives forward and rounds Hennessey before applying a simple finish.
C PALACE 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON
88: A wild attempt from range by Charlie Austin goes very wide indeed. Palace push forward again in numbers... Meyer's cross hits Cedric and goes out for another Palace corner.
The corner comes to nothing.
85: GREAT SAVE! Another fine stop from McCarthy to tip over McArthur's attempt from range!
From the corner, it's that man Benteke who meets it but his free header goes well over! Another great chance squandered by the former Liverpool striker.
77: YELLOW! For Vestergaard after he clatters into Benteke.
75: Kouyate has a go from range, but his drive is well saved by McCarthy. Palace corner flighted in by Milivojevic reaches McArthur outside the box, but Ings blocks the shot.
72: SUBS! Townsend comes off for Cheikhou Kouyate. For Southampton, Matt Targett is on for Elyounoussi.
70: That penalty miss appears to have injected some confidence into Palace as they surge forward looking for an equaliser. No clear-cut chances forged yet, though!
67: OFF THE BAR! Hennessey produces a fantastic save as he gets down low to deny Redmond before Elyounoussi smashes his close-range rebound onto the bar! It's hard to believe Southampton are not two up!
64:HENNESSEY SAVES IT! Wow. Austin's low strike is saved by the boot of Hennessey who kicks it away as he dived to his right! Just how significant could that be!?
63: PENALTY TO SOUTHAMPTON! And a yellow card for Wan-Bissaka for a handball as Austin went to apply a goal-bound finish. Austin is standing over it...
61: SUB! Long leaves the pitch with an injury. Charlie Austin replaces him.
52: OFF THE BAR! McArthur curls a wonderful shot from outside the box which looks destined for the top corner... but it crashes off the corner of the woodwork! That was agonisingly close.
50: That's a real sucker punch for Palace as the noise inside Selhurst Park has dropped considerably. Can they find a response?
GOAL! C PALACE 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON (Ings, 47)
A simple ball over the top from Cedric is somehow missed by Sakho and Kelly and drops into the path of Ings. In a one-on-one position, he cooly slots the ball into the net - through Hennessey's legs - to put the visitors in front!
C PALACE 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON
46: And we're back underway at Selhurst Park! No half-time changes.
HALF-TIME PRICE BOOSTS

An entertaining first-half but no goals for either side. Palace and Southampton have both had good opportunities to take the lead but we're still level. Second half to follow shortly!
45: ONE minute of added time in this first-half. Milivojevic hits a volley towards goal which is straight down the throat of McCarthy.
43: Palace have an indirect free-kick after Hoedt knocks into Benteke. Milivojevic's cross to the far post looking for the Belgium international is easily cleared by Vestergaard.
35: Redmond has had lots of the ball on the left wing but Wan-Bissaka and Townsend have done well to limit his threat. He's struggling to create any really dangerous opportunities from the flank since his own attempt in the fourth minute.
32: WHAT A SAVE! Elyounoussi's free-kick is swung in to the near post. Milivojevic dives in and heads towards his own goal, forcing Hennessey to make a superb reflex save as he dives to his left and tips over! Wow.
The folowing corner comes to nothing.
30: NO PENALTY! Benteke goes down in the box under the challenge from Bertrand. He appeals for a penalty but referee Atkinson waves away his protests. Benteke went down very easily there...
27: SAVE! Hojbjerg, in space, fires a shot from outside the box towards goal which Hennessey tips over the bar! The Welsh keeper then comes out to claim Elyounoussi's corner.
26: A HUGE MISS! Wan-Bissaka floats a dangerous cross into the box which McCarthy completely misses! It lands on the head of Benteke but he nods it wide!
Another great opportunity for Benteke to open his account goes begging.
23: Southampton have had lots of the ball with Palace struggling to get numbers up the pitch. Zaha's absence looks like it is being felt right now.
24: Hojbjerg fires a vicious drive towards goal from 30-yards out... which goes well wide.
20: BLOCK! Long gets a shot away from close range, but Sakho and Wan-Bissaka do well to slide in and block his strike as he pulls the trigger! Southampton on top right now.
16: OVER! Ayew does well to hold the ball up and turns Vestergaard, but his ambitious strike from range rockets over the bar. He perhaps could have played Benteke through there.
13: Southampton looking to force the issue here with plenty of crosses going into the box looking for Long and Ings, but so far Wan-Bissaka and Van Aanholt have done well to contain Southampton's wide men.
9: Schlupp plays a dangerous low cross into the box looking for Ayew but the ball runs just behind him.... can the Ghana international find a goal today on his Palace league debut?
7: Southampton have settled down a bit now and are knocking the ball around, dominating possession. Bertrand and Redmond have seen plenty of the ball on the left flank so far.
4: SAVE! Redmond cuts in off the left flank and curls his effort towards the top corner. It deflects off Wan-Bissaka and the looping attempt sees Hennessey tip it over the bar! It's been some start at Selhurst Park!
2: WIDE! Benteke pulls away from Cedric and finds himself in space in the box, he rises above Hoedt to meet Townsend's cross but he nods his effort past the post! He perhaps should have scored that.
1: CLOSE! A nervy moment for Hennessey as Sakho bizarrely tries to chest the ball back to his team-mate, forcing the Welsh goalkeeper to punch away under pressure!
1: And... we're off! Today's referee is Martin Atkinson.
Both sets of players make their way onto the pitch at a noisy Selhurst Park. Kick-off is just moments away!

'MCCARTHY CAN CHALLENGE PICKFORD'
Mark Hughes believes Alex McCarthy can challenge Jordan Pickford for the England No.1 jersey after being called into Gareth Southgate’s squad for the first time.
Speaking about McCarthy's call-up, Hughes said: "We're delighted with that. I think he deserves it. His fundamentals are very sound.
"He's a big guy but very mobile, very dynamic in his box as well. He's a top level keeper and will push whoever's in possession of the shirt, I'm sure."
