Crystal Palace v Brighton: match preview

on 17 October 2020

Crystal Palace and Brighton face each other off the back of losing their past two games and the spice usually involved in this fixture will hopefully not be dampened by the lack of a crowd. Neither side could claim to be in a rut before the break considering all of those defeats were to superior opponents, even if Manchester United definitely did not deserve their win over Brighton. Graham Potter may feel he has the slight edge as Neil Maupay looks to be the difference maker between the two sides on current form. Graham Searles
