With the Premier League table reaching the business end of the season, English football’s top-tier remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, relegation candidates Crystal Palace will welcome Brighton to Selhurst Park.
For the hosts on Saturday afternoon, despite finding initial success under former England boss Roy Hodgson, Crystal Palace have slipped back to their old ways and now find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle once again. After 33 Premier League matches this season, Palace have won seven, drawn 10 and lost 16, scoring 33 and conceding 52. With a points tally of 31, the West London club are now sat 17th in the Premier League table and hold just a three-point advantage over the drop zone. In need for points Palace have recently begun to struggle, they now have just one win in their last 10 outings, drawing three and losing six. Palace have also conceded two goals in five of their last seven.
As for the visitors, Brighton have enjoyed a respectable first year among England’s elite and the Seagulls appear to have extended their stay in the Premier League. After 38 games this season, Brighton have won eight, drawn 11 and lost 13, scoring 29 and conceding 43, Brighton do boast the third worst attacking statistics in the Premier League. With a points tally of 35, Brighton now sit in 13th spot and hold a seven-point buffer over the drop zone, one more win should cement their safety. As for their recent form, despite starting the New Year brightly, Brighton have won just one in their last five outings and are coming off the back of a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield.
