Saints had their Premier League status confirmed last night as Fulham’s defeat to Burnley saw Scott Parker’s side relegated to the Championship.
However, after such a poor spell of form in 2021, Ralph Hasenhuttl will be determined to lift his side from their current place in 17th over the final four games of the season.
For Palace there is little to play for except the chance to climb above Wolves and finish 12th in the table.
Here is everything you need to know.

Southampton could have top scorer Danny Ings back from injury for Tuesday evening’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.
Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl said Ings would be assessed on a hamstring problem sustained at Tottenham on April 21, having initially feared the striker may miss the remainder of the season.
On-loan Takumi Minamino is available to return to the squad after being ineligible against his parent club Liverpool on Saturday but Ryan Bertrand (calf), Oriol Romeu (ankle) and Will Smallbone (knee) remain out.
Crystal Palace have no new injury worries, but could make changes to their starting XI given the quick turnaround following Saturday’s 2-0 win at already-relegated Sheffield United.
Mamadou Sakho (thigh), James McArthur (calf) and Connor Wickham (muscle) missed the trip to Yorkshire and are unlikely to feature again this season.
Nathan Ferguson has returned to first-team training, but he is not expected to be rushed back during the final two weeks of the campaign after struggling with a knee injury and more recently a thigh issue during the last 18 months.
Southampton: Forster, Walker-Peters, Vestergaard, Bednarek, Stephens, Walcott, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Redmond, Adams, Minamino
Crystal Palace: Guaita, Ward, Kouyate, Cahill, Mitchell, Eze, Milivojevic, Schlupp, Townsend, Benteke, Zaha
A hard one to call between two sides with little to play for. Palace are in better form and that may be enough to see them over the line.
