Brighton made it four games unbeaten in all competitions when they defeated West Brom 2-1 (after extra-time) in the FA Cup last time out. In the Premier League the Seagulls have taken seven points from their last three. Both teams to score is a common feature of their games and has happened in each of their last two and four of their last six.

At their own place, it is just one victory in their last five with three of the last six here finishing all-square. Fans at the Amex are rarely treated to goals with the last four games producing a total of just five goals with Albion netting three of them. The last three matches here have failed to see a goal come after the interval.

Crystal Palace booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 road victory at Millwall in their last game. In the league, the Eagles are struggling a little with just one win in their last four and this came against bottom side Norwich. The London side are involved in high-scoring games with each of their last five going over 2.5 goals.

On the road, they have lost each of their last three and won just once in the league this season. A lack of road goals has been a problem for Palace who have blanked in each of their last three Premier League travels. The London outfit tend to be vulnerable in the last twenty minutes conceding a goal in this period in each of their last three away top-flight games.

Brighton vs Crystal Palace: Match Stats

Both teams to score is the best play here and is supported by the data. Seven of the last 11 Premier League games that Brighton have been involved have seen both teams net. Crystal Palace have seen this occur in nine of their previous 15 games. The head-to-head record also shows this is a good bet with eight of their last nine meetings seeing both teams fire at least one goal.

This game is not a geographical local derby but it does feature two sides whose fans dislike each other. Various moments in history have led to this being a passionate competitive fixture and players will be expected to react as such. This opens up the booking markets and Adam Lallana at Brighton looks a good option in the to be carded market. The midfielder has four booking this season and two in his last five at home. He is likely to play in centre midfield against a Crystal Palace side with pace (in Zaha and Olise) on the counter-attack.
