Crystal Palace vs Brighton and Hove Albion

Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace will face off with Brighton and Hove Albion as the two sides resume their rivalry at Selhurst Park.

Though it is not necessarily known as one of the great derbies in world football, tensions will be running high in east London as the Eagles host the Seagulls on Sunday.

Roy Hodgson’s Palace started the 2019/20 season superbly with wins against Southampton and Manchester United.

However, they were followed up by defeats to Everton and Chelsea.

Crystal Palace edged Manchester United in the opening game

As for Graham Potter’s Brighton, they sit 15th after losing three of their opening four games.

The south coast club have shown more than enough in attack so far this term, but must sort out a leaky defence if they are to avoid a potential relegation scrap.

Palace still have plenty of defensive injury issues, with Patrick van Aanholt, Gary Cahill and James Tomkins all out at the back.

Connor Wickham is likely to remain sidelined, though Jeffrey Schlupp and James McCarthy are pushing to return.

Michy Batshuayi can play after being unable to face his parent club Chelsea last time around.

Brighton will be hoping Davy Propper, Tariq Lamptey and Alireza Jahanbakhsh are back from injury.

Florin Andone and Christian Walton are out, while Jose Izquierdo has an outside chance of returning.
