Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Brighton will be aiming to bounce back from a massive 4-0 loss to Luton Town when they take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League round 23. The Seagulls experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the Kenilworth Road defeat, but they are still seen as favourites to beat the capital club at home. Experienced midfielder James Milner suffered an injury in the midweek defeat, with Jack Hinshelwood likely to replace him in the starting XI. Kaoru Mitoma is still on international duty, while Ansu Fati remains on the sidelines with injury.
The Eagles, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 3-2 win over Sheffield United. Palace, though, have been struggling on the travels of late, with the team collecting only two points in total from the last five away games. In their last meeting at Amex Stadium Brighton defeated Crystal Palace thanks to Solly March’s goal and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. As for the away side, Joel Ward is a major doubt, while both Rob Holding and Cheick Doucoure are sidelined with injuries.
