Crystal Palace vs Brighton
This fixture is known as the M23 in which Crystal Palace welcomes a Brighton side who have claimed just eight points in 14 trips to Selhurst Park. Crystal Palace has won three out of their last five league games, only losing to Manchester United during that run. Also, they have pulled away from the relegation zone with eight points clear of 18th placed Cardiff City. Brighton, also, took a step away from the immediate relegation battle with a 1-0 win against Huddersfield in the last round. It was their first win in eight league matches.
- Crystal Palace has seen over 2.5 goals in their last 3matches against Brighton in all competitions
- Brighton have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches in Premier League
Although both teams won their last matches, neither of these two rivals are out of the relegation scenario just yet. Also, both sides are well aware that a win would move them a huge step closer to survival in the top-flight. However, Brighton’s poor away record could ensure another three points for the home team.
