Brighton managed to collect a valuable three points last weekend which snapped a poor winless streak that they were on. They get a tough trip to Selhurst Park though this weekend. Crystal Palace have only lost one of their last six league games and they themselves would put all relation worries behind them with three home points.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Crystal Palace recorded a good three points away at Burnley last weekend. That gave the Eagles their third win in their last five games in the top flight (D1 L1). Palace have suffered just the one defeat in their last six, home and away in the EPL, so they have a bit of form behind them and have fewer relegation worries at the moment. They don’t have a great home record though for the campaign at just W4 D4 L7. They are W1 D1 L1 in their last three at Selhurst Park. But as a positive for them in this one is that Crystal Palace have lost just one of six home games this season against other teams in the bottom half of the table.

Crystal Palace have scored just the ten home goals all season, with 21% of games at Selhurst Park having ended under 2.5 goals. But they are on a four-match scoring streak at home in the top flight. Palace have conceded 80% of their home goals conceded in the second half of matches. The only side in the division to currently hold a worse home record than Palace is bottom side Huddersfield. Palace have scored the opening goal in 5 of their 14 home games only.

Brighton News and Form

The Seagulls had been struggling along badly on a seven-match winless streak of form before recording a 1-0 success over Huddersfield last weekend. While it wasn’t a great scoreline, they got the three points to halt their slide. Brighton are now at W1 D3 L5 in their last nine EPL fixture. But that was a home success and their away form does still make for some pretty poor reading. Brighton haven’t won in six road games, picking up the one point only in that sequence of games. Brighton have scored only the 13 away goals this season.

The away record of the Seagulls is W2 D2 L10 for the campaign. Their defence has been far from reliable, conceding at an average of 1.8 goals against them. In total, they have conceded ten goals in their last four road games. The Seagulls have taken one away clean sheet all season long. They have not managed a single one in any of their last nine away from the Amex. Brighton have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last five away games. More trouble ahead for the Seagulls?

Crystal Palace v Brighton Predictions

Crystal Palace to win: The Eagles can deliver a big three home points for themselves in this ones to further ease their relegation concerns. It should be a straight forward home win as Brighton have been really slack on their travels recently.
