Brighton vs Crystal Palace Predictions

  • Brighton have scored in six of their last seven competitive games but have just one clean sheet in that period.
  • Crystal Palace have scored in five of their last six matches but also have only one clean sheet in that run.
  • It has been 1-1 after 90 minutes in five of Brighton’s last ten matches.

Seagulls look to rediscover early-season form

A blistering start to the season saw Brighton in the mix for a top four spot but autumn and winter gave way to familiar problems for the Seagulls. They remained difficult to beat but struggled to find the net themselves, but a resurgence since Christmas leaves them in the top half of the table at their halfway point of the campaign.

They head into this clash unbeaten in four in all competitions, with two league wins in that period and an extra-time triumph at West Brom in the FA Cup last weekend.

Palace find scoring touch under Vieira

Crystal Palace also enjoyed cup success at a Championship side as they beat Millwall last weekend and, with three wins and a draw in their last six games, they will be feeling fairly confident ahead of their trip to the south coast on Friday.

Patrick Vieira’s appointment in the summer has taken the Eagles in a new direction and the abundance of goals has been a very welcome sight. They have failed to score in just 30% of their games this season, down from 39.5% of matches over the last two Premier League campaigns.

Goals at both ends at the Amex

Unsurprisingly, they have slipped at the other end in the process and that suggests goals at both ends could be on the cards at the Amex Stadium.

Palace have scored in five of their last six matches but have kept just one clean sheet in the process, while Brighton have found the net in six of their last seven and also have just one clean sheet to show for it. Additionally, both teams have scored in eight of the last nine meetings between these sides, so I’m backing goals at both ends here.

Interestingly, three of the last five head-to-heads have ended 1-1 and that happens to be a scoreline Brighton are quite familiar with. Five of their last ten games have been 1-1 after 90 minutes, so that’s my choice for a correct score prediction.

Brighton predicted lineup: Sanchez; Veltman, Duffy, Burn; Lamptey, MacAllister, Moder, Lallana, Cucurella; Trossard, Maupay

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Hughes, Schlupp; Olise, Edouard, Benteke

  • Seven of the last eight Premier League meetings between these sides have seen both teams score
  • There have been two 1-1 draws in the last three Premier League meetings between this pair
