Brighton vs Crystal Palace prediction: Brighton 1-1 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace ended their eight-match winless run with a much-needed win over Newcastle last weekend.

Brighton have only won one of their last eight home matches in all competitions, while Palace haven’t won any of their last six away matches in the Premier League.

Defeat for Brighton would throw them right back into the relegation mix. Crystal Palace are five points better off and have a bit more breathing room.

Brighton vs Crystal Palace: Who will win?

Brighton are 1/1 favourites to win the match while Crystal Palace are 14/5 to win. The draw is priced at 23/10.

The last five league matches at the Amex have all seen fewer than three goals scored. Bet on under 2.5 goals at 8/13.

Each of the last five encounters between the two sides has seen both teams score. Bet on both teams to score at 1/1.

Neal Maupay scored in last weekend’s draw at Sheffield and could keep his place in the side. Maupay is 9/2 to open the scoring and 13/8 to score anytime.

Brighton vs Crystal Palace Premier League match preview

Brighton host Crystal Palace at the Amex on Saturday.

Brighton held Sheffield United to a 1-1 draw at Bramall Lane last Saturday. Brighton scored an equaliser through Neal Maupay, minutes after going behind. Brighton have drawn three on the spin and four of their last five. Graham Potter’s men lie 15th in the table, four points above the drop zone.

Brighton have won four and drawn six of their 13 home matches this season. Their last win at home was a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth in December.

Crystal Palace earned their first win of 2020 last weekend, beating Newcastle 1-0 at Selhurst Park. Patrick van Aanholt scored the only goal of the game on the stroke of half time.

The victory put an end to three consecutive defeats and lifts Palace up to 13th in the table – nine points above the relegation zone and five points above Saturday’s opponents.

Palace have won three and drawn five of their 13 matches on the road this season – the 12th best away form in the league. Palace’s last away match ended in a 3-1 defeat at Goodison Park.  The Eagles are aiming for a first away win at Brighton since 2013.

The two sides have met 5 times in the Premier League. Their most recent meeting ended in a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park in mid-December. Neal Maupay opened the scoring before Wilfried Zaha equalised.

Dale Stephens is still a doubt after missing last weekend’s draw with a hamstring injury.

Graham Potter could revert to a four-man defence after starting five at the back against the Blades.

Neal Maupay looks set to keep his place up front after scoring last weekend. Glenn Murray has started the last two matches but could make way if Graham Potter opts for one starting striker. Murray made 112 league appearances for Palace between 2011 and 2015.

Anthony Connolly is another attacking option for the home side. Pascal Gross and Solly March were unused substitutes last time out and will be hoping for recalls.

Jose Izquierdo remains sidelined with a knee injury.

Crystal Palace team news vs Brighton

Roy Hodgson will be hesitant to make too many changes following the win against Newcastle.

He may be forced to replace Cheikhou Kouyate in the starting eleven after the midfielder was forced off with a knock. Luka Milivojevic missed out last weekend through illness and could come straight in for Kouyate.

Cenk Tosun returned from injury as a late substitute for Christian Benteke and will be aiming for more minutes on Saturday. Andros Townsend, Martin Kelly and Max Meyer were all unused substitutes and could benefit from potential rotation.

James Tomkins, Mamadou Sakho and Jeffrey Schlupp remain sidelined.
