THE PREDICTION

The Eagles vs The Seagulls. In what is possibly the most bizarre rivalry in English football, this seasons A23 derby has every possibility of being the highest standard it has ever been, with both sides showing spells of exciting, fast-paced football in their games so far. Palace had a positive start, beating both Southampton and United, but fell short against an in-form Everton side and took a 4-0 hammering to Chelsea before the international break. Brighton have been incredibly unlucky this season, with their 3-1 loss to Chelsea a very flattering score line for The Blues and United’s last-minute penalty against them a cruel blow. There isn’t much to separate these two, and they both have goal scorers in their sides with Maupay on four goals for Brighton and Zaha with three for Palace. A draw and BTTS is a possible outcome.
