Reason for Brighton vs Crystal Palace Predictions
Brighton and Crystal Palace are coming from wins in the FA Cup and will be shifting attention to the Premier League as they face off at the AMEX Community Stadium. Ahead of this game, hosts Brighton are ninth with 27 points while Crystal Palace has 23 points, in 12th place. Brighton has a game in hand on Crystal Palace and will want to make this count, having established a comfortable run. They needed to come from down to complete a 2-1 win over Championship side West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup Niall Maupay, scoring the winner in the 98th minute. That win made it four unbeaten outings for Brighton, and they’ve scored twice in three of them. It has been all too rare in recent games that Brighton & Hove Albion have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. Neal Maupay is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Louis Dunk (knee injury) and Tudor Baluta (unknown injury) are unavailable for Brighton coach Graham Potter.
Crystal Palace returned to winning ways, also with a 2-1 win over a Championship side – Millwall, in the FA Cup. Just like Brighton, they also had to come from behind, though they finished their business earlier and didn’t need extra time. Palace’s scoring returns are good; in their last five matches, they’ve failed to score once, while they’ve scored two or more goals in four of their previous five games. They head to this game with one clean sheet in the last five matches, and both sides have scored in three of their last five games. Conor Gallagher shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Wilfried Zaha is the best player on the team, and it will be challenging to keep him because many great clubs want him. His greatest virtue is speed. Owing to a completely injury-free group available to select from, the Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
