Crystal Palace Insights.

Nicknamed the ‘M23 derby’, Crystal Palace take on rivals Brighton & Hove Albion looking for their first home win in this fixture since April 2018 (D1, L1). Roy Hodgson’s men started the season well with two Premier League (PL) victories, yet those were their only wins in this competition across 12 matches (W2, D1, L9). They attempted under 4.5 shots on target in nine of those fixtures, and partly as a consequence of that, failed to score in eight. The ‘Eagles’ have scored only one goal in both PL home matches so far, and they also scored just one goal in 47.37% of their PL home matches last season too. Whilst they conceded before HT in their last home match, this wasn’t a regular occurrence last season, and therefore both teams scored before the break in just one of their 19 home matches.

Brighton & Hove Albion Insights.

Brighton’s start has been disappointing (W1, L3), although they have scored an impressive 2+ goals in three of their PL matches so far. However they trailed at HT in two of those games – losing both – which extended a run from last season of failing to win any PL fixture in which they were trailing at the break (D3, L11). The side from the South Coast boasts the better overall H2H record in this derby (W40, D26. L37). They’ve also lost just two of their previous seven competitive visits to Selhurst Park (W2, D3, L2). Discipline has been an issue though and they have averaged 2.5 yellow cards per fixture across the previous four matches here.
