16th placed Brighton take on 14th placed Crystal Palace in The American Express Community Stadium today in the premier league.
Brighton would be hoping to win at a third trial having drawn their last two matches while Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace would be playing for a win at the third time of asking, having lost their last two games in the premier league.
Crystal Palace who would be without their talisman, Wilfried Zaha, would be looking for a way to win without him. Roy Hodgson’s men have lost 18 of their last 20 Premier League games in which Wilfried Zaha hasn’t played, with the Eagles failing to score in 16 of those 18 defeats.

Wilfried Zaha has scored more goals in all competitions against Brighton than he has versus any other opponent in his English club career (7). He still remains a doubt for this match due to injury, and if he does not play, Crystal Palace must have to win without him.
Though, Brighton have kept just one clean sheet in their seven Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace (W2 D3 L2), with that coming in a goalless draw in their first such meeting in November 2017.
It is important to note that Brighton and Hove Albion (W3 D3) have gone unbeaten in six consecutive top-flight games for the first time since a run of eight ending in November 1981.
Brighton have also kept a clean sheet in each of their last three home Premier League games – they have never registered four home shutouts in a row in the top-flight.
Although, Brighton have never won a Premier League game on a Monday (D6 L2) – only Hull City (10) have played more games on this day of the week without ever winning in the competition’s history.
While one may be tempted to give Brighton – the home team, the win; since Crystal Palace can’t win without Wilfried Zaha, it is important to draw lesson from the Southampton v Chelsea game.
So, our betting prediction today is Roy Hodgson’s men putting a stop to the rot that is taking place without Wilfried Zaha.
