Crystal Palace Prediction – Can Palace extend recent run?

It’s not a local derby as such but with previous history between them and just three points separating Palace and Brighton in the Premier League, this should make for an interesting Monday night clash at Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace look to continue their recent good form in the top flight.

Following a worrying spell of 5 matches without a win which included 4 defeats – Manchester City, Leicester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, in what was a particularly punishing sequence of fixtures, Palace have since gained some respite by recording back-to-back wins against Burnley and Bournemouth along with a point away at Watford.

The hosts know that all three points on Monday night would see them draw level on points with current 5th placed side, Sheffield United, so there’s plenty at stake for Roy Hodgson’s side as they seek to improve a home record of 3-2-3 6/7.

A lack of goals at Selhurst Park has perhaps held the hosts back this term but no doubt The Eagles will be desperate to avenge last season’s 2-1 defeat to The Seagulls in the last encounter between these two teams here on Monday night.

Brighton Prediction – Can Brighton continue dominance over Palace?

As mentioned earlier, just three points separate Brighton from their Monday night’s hosts, Crystal Palace ahead of what promises to be an interesting and fiery affair in south-east London as Brighton look to inflict a third defeat on the trot against their rivals.

Following a dismal 3-match losing streak in the top flight which saw The Seagulls suffer defeats to Manchester United, Leicester City and Liverpool, they too have staged something of a recovery in recent times as Graham Potter’s side registered a valuable 2-1 win away at out-of-sorts Arsenal along with a point in a 2-2 draw with Wolves at their AMEX Stadium.

The south coast side still continue to have their issues away from home though as their record of 2-1-5 8/14 indicates, along with having lost 5 of their last 7 matches on their travels and failing to score in 3 of their 8 away matches to date.

In addition, Brighton have conceded 2 goals or more in 5 of these 8 away matches too, and this could be the determining factor in deciding the outcome of this clash against Crystal Palace.


Key-Facts – Crystal Palace vs Brighton

  • Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last 3 matches in the Premier League
  • Brighton have lost 5 of their last 7 matches away from home in the EPL
  • Brighton have won the last two encounters against Crystal Palace


Betting Tips Verdict

Crystal Palace with home advantage should at least avoid defeat here but could nick the points too.
