Crystal Palace vs Brighton

Chris Hughton is desperately trying to steer Brighton’s season back on track and this Saturday will take them to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace. Roy Hodgson’s men currently hold a three-point lead over their upcoming opponents after enjoying a decent run of form in the Premier League. Brighton are having one of their poorest seasons since joining the Premier League and find themselves down in 16th, just five points clear of the bottom three. When these sides met at the AMEX Stadium, Brighton eased to a 3-1 win but with Palace holding the home and form advantage, we are expecting a much different game this time around.

Crystal Palace are in some of their best form recently, but they need to extend this form as they are far from being safe of the relegation zone. Palace head into matchday 30 sat in 13th place, eight points above the bottom three. The Eagles struggled last time out against Brighton, but they will be planning on a much better result with them at home and in better form. Palace have lost just one of their last five games which came against Manchester United, but since then have bounced back with a 3-1 win over Burnley. SkyBet has the hosts to win priced at 5/6, making them the favourites.

Roy Hodgson will be hoping his side can bring their winless run of two games whilst playing at home to an end this weekend. Four of Crystal Palace’s last five games have seen both sides involved score and concede. Bet365 has both teams to score priced at 19/20. Wilfried Zaha sits as his sides joint top goalscorer, with eight goals scored this season. The forward arrives in good form having scored three goals in his last three games and can be backed to score anytime with Betway at a price of 9/5.

Brighton are in need of some consistency in their performances, as they find themselves falling dangerously close to the relegation zone. The Seagulls head into this match sat down in 16th place just five points clear of the bottom three. Two of Brighton’s last few victories have been followed by a loss, but they head into this fixture having beaten Huddersfield Town 1-0. The Seagulls have only won one of their last three away games played. SkyBet has the travelling side priced at 18/5 to take the three points.

The Seagulls had prided themselves in being a defensively strong side but recently they have struggled to keep a clean sheet. Four of their last five games have seen over 2.5 goals scored and you can back there to be over 2.5 goals again with Bet365 for a price of 6/5. Glenn Murray has 12 goals this season for Brighton, making him their top goalscorer and the forward can be backed to add to his tally with Betway at a price of 21/10.
