LONDON (AP) - Southampton’s resurgence continued at Selhurst Park as Ronald Koeman’s side beat Crystal Palace 3-1 Friday to move back into the top four of the Premier League.

Many thought the bubble had burst on Saints’ astonishing start to the campaign after an embarrassing League Cup exit to third-tier Sheffield United made it five straight defeats in all competitions.

Southampton brought that miserable run to an end against Everton last weekend and impressively racked up another big win on a wet day in south London against Palace, where Sadio Mane, Ryan Bertrand and Toby Alderweireld netted in a 3-1 victory, which saw Scott Dann score a late consolation.

The defeat means Palace have won just one of its last 12 top-flight matches with fans jeering manager Neil Warnock.
