LIVE – Goals galore at St. Mary’s as Palace lead 3-2 at half


It’s been a wild first half at St. Mary’s as Crystal Palace lead Southampton 3-2 at halftime of their FA Cup match.

Graziano Pelle gave Saints the lead nine minutes in, only to see Marouane Chamakh equalize for Palace just two minutes later. Southampton would regain the lead on an own-goal by Palace defender Scott Dann, finding themselves up 2-1 all within the first 20 minutes of play.


But Palace has found new life under manager Alan Pardew, as the Eagles battled back and scored twice more before halftime, giving them a 3-2 lead at the break. Yaya Sanogo scored his first goal for Palace after making a loan move from Arsenal, and Chamakh bagged his second of the match in the 39th minute.
