Crystal Palace vs Brighton Match Preview
It takes place only nine days before Christmas, but seasonal greetings will be in short supply between the opposing sets of supporters in the M23 derby – which we are backing Crystal Palace to win.
Fifty miles along the M23 – it’s actually mostly an A-road – separates these clubs but they have been fierce rivals ever since the 1970s and no love is lost, even at this time of year.
Palace are three points above Brighton in the Premier League table and their fine opening half of the season has been based on solid defending – they will go into this game with three consecutive clean sheets to their credit.
What has also impressed about the Eagles is their record against clubs from outside the ‘big six’, or seven if you include Leicester – their only defeat to any other team was away to Sheffield United back in mid-August.
Brighton can be fairly happy with their campaign too so far, the highlights of which have been wins over north London rivals Tottenham (home) and Arsenal (away).
The Seagulls caught Arsenal at a good time, however, and as they appear to be a better side on home soil, this game looks set up for Palace to come out on top and retain their place in the top half of the table.
