Crystal Palace vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction: Premier League Match on 27.09.2021
Monday night football sees a fixture between two local rivals, as the M23 derby takes place at Selhurst Park. But, will it be Crystal Palace or Brighton & Hove Albion with the bragging rights?
Premier League Preview
The two local rivals find themselves at different ends of the Premier League standings after five games have been played this season. Brighton have enjoyed an excellent start to the new campaign, as they sit in the Champions League places. The Seagulls come into this round of fixtures in fourth place, having picked up 12 points from a possible 15. They have lost on just one occasion so far this campaign, but have since bounced back from that setback in strong fashion, by winning their last two. It was an excellent win for the Seagulls last weekend, as they overcame Leicester at the Amex to win 2-1 in front of their home fans. Neal Maupay scored the opening goal in the fixture after 35 minutes from the spot, while Danny Welbeck extended their advantage five minutes into the second period.
It hasn’t been a bad start to Patrick Vieira’s managerial career in the Premier League, as he has been able to shake off doubts that his tenure could begin in the same way to Frank de Boer’s. Palace have five points after five games, and have won once and picked up two draws. They will be looking to put last weekend’s defeat against Liverpool behind them this weekend, as they had no answer for the Reds fine attacking output. However, Monday nights haven’t been a good time for a Premier League fixture for the Eagles, as they have won just once in their previous 12 matches played on the first day of the week.
Crystal Palace vs Brighton & Hove Albion Head to Head
Palace have held a dominant record in this fixture over the past two seasons, as they are unbeaten in four. Palace have won twice during this space of time, but both wins came at the Amex. Meanwhile, the Seagulls have won only once in their last seven matches against Palace.
Crystal Palace vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction
Palace have a very good record against Brighton, but it’s hard to ignore the start to the season that the Seagulls have made. For that reason, we are going with an away win in this fixture on Monday.
