 It is one of the Premier League rivalries that has received little attention. Palace and Brighton have built a feud since the 1970s, when the two teams competed together for titles in English football.

 Crystal Palace shocked City in the previous round by holding City to a draw at the Etihad. However, they have only won two points in the last six matches. In this period, only Nottingham Forest (1) have won fewer points than Palace. This has led to increased pressure on the oldest manager in Premier League history.

 The poor results dropped Crystal Palace to 15th place in the table. Basically, they are still safe, with 8 points more than the relegation group. However, the story could become more unpredictable for Roy Hodgson if Palace continues to decline.

 Given their recent form, it’s hard to trust Palace to play explosively against Brighton. They also didn’t have good results with midweek games. The Eagles are winless in five midweek matches in Premier League competition in 2023, failing to score in four of these games.

 One positive for Palace is that striker Jordan Ayew is back from suspension. Jefferson Lerma is also available after missing the game against City.

Joel Ward was injured against City and is likely to be absent against Brighton. That would open the door for 18-year-old star David Ozoh to impress. Long-term injuries to Sam Johnstone, Odsonne Edouard, Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, Cheick Doucoure, and Rob Holding will keep them out of this match.

 On the other side of the line, Brighton also lost seven first-team players. Solly March, Joel Veltman, Julio Enciso, Adam Webster, Tariq Lamptey, Ansu Fati, and Pervis Estupinan are all out of action.

 The rising number of injuries has also caused Brighton to decline in form recently. At the beginning of the season, at one point, Brighton were at the top of the Premier League. But they have dropped to 9th place and drifted further and further away from the Champions League group.

 Brighton’s back-to-back scoring streak also stopped at 32 after they sniffed against Arsenal. Meanwhile, the Seagulls have not kept clean sheets in their last 21 Premier League matches, conceding 38 goals. This is the longest conceding streak in Brighton’s history.

 Brighton and Crystal Palace have struggled against each other recently. Three of the last four head-to-head matches ended in draws. In the last match, Brighton also struggled to win 1-0 thanks to Solly March’s only goal. Therefore, the upcoming match at Selhurst Park promises to be extremely close.

 Crystal Palace vs. Brighton Special Preview

 Two teams tied: Four of the last six head-to-head matches between the two teams ended in a draw. Palace have drawn two of their last four Premier League games. Brighton are the top team, but they have won only one of their last six away games. So, “Seagulls” may lose points in the upcoming visit.

 Less than 2.5 goals: The hostility of the two teams could have made the game go with greater caution. Brighton have to play away, so it is difficult to completely dominate, while Palace do not dare to double attack. Therefore, it can be believed that this match will end with a few goals scored.

 Crystal Palace vs. Brighton result prediction: 1-1
