Brighton vs Crystal Palace Premier League match preview

Matchweek 15 in the Premier league sees Brighton & Hove Albion host Crystal Palace at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday night.

Brighton ended a run of three matches without a win on Saturday, beating Huddersfield 2-1 away from home. Chris Hughton’s side went behind in the first minute but goals from Shane Duffy and Florin Andone secured three points against ten-man Huddersfield.

The win lifts the Seagulls up to 11th in the table on 18 points. They could move as high as 9th on Tuesday, depending on other results.

Crystal Palace made it back-to-back clean sheets on Saturday when they beat Burnley 2-0 at Selhurst Park. James McArthur and Andros Townsend scored either side of half-time to lift the Eagles up into 14th position.

Saturday’s victory – Palace’s first in nine matches – was their 100th all-time win in the Premier League. Incidentally, it was also their 200th top-flight win.

A win for Palace could move them up one place in the table, depending on West Ham’s result against Cardiff.

Last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a goalless draw, although Crystal Palace won the reverse match 3-2 at Selhurst Park in April.

Wilfried Zaha (2) and James Tomkins netted for Palace while Glenn Murray and Jose Izquierdo scored for Brighton.

All five goals were scored in the first half. Brighton did beat Palace 2-1 in last season’s FA Cup third round tie at the Amex.

Crystal Palace team news vs Brighton

Christian Benteke remains sidelined with a knee injury and is targeting a return before 2019.

Connor Wickham has returned to first-team training and comes back into contention following a thigh injury.

Scott Dann remains a fitness doubt, so James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho should continue together at the back.

Saturday’s game is the second of four matches in a two week period for Palace, so Hodgson could spring a few selection surprises with that in mind.
