The Eagles had to fight from kick-off, but looked bright when linking-up on the counter. Jairo Riedewald earned a start and performed notably well along the left with James McArthur and Wilfried Zaha.
Jordan Ayew, as ever, battled going forwards and backwards and James McCarthy enjoyed a strong 90 minutes in midfield.
At the back, Vicente Guaita pulled off a string of astonishing saves barely minutes apart to hold off a gung-ho Saints side.
