Match Previews

Preview: Brighton and Hove Albion vs Crystal Palace

28 November 2017

Palace do battle with arch-rivals Brighton and Hove Albion for the first time in four-and-a-half years at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday night, in a 7.45pm kick-off.

The two sides haven't faced off since the 2013 Championship play-off semi-final on the south coast when two goals from Wilfried Zaha claimed a huge win for the Eagles, paving the way for promotion at the expense of the Seagulls.

Palace come into the game looking to climb off the bottom of the table for the first time since the start of September, having closed the gap on their fellow strugglers after beating Stoke City 2-1 on Saturday thanks to Mamadou Sakho's late winner.

Reunion for red-hot Murray

Glenn Murray

Saturday saw Brighton lose narrowly to Manchester United via a Lewis Dunk own goal, but their early days in the division have yielded much better results.

Following their promotion to the Premier League last season, Chris Hughton's team have picked up 16 points from their opening 13 top-flight matches and currently sit in ninth position, and are unbeaten in five games at home since losing their season opener against Manchester City.

Those impressive stats are largely down to the goalscoring exploits of Glenn Murray, who has netted four in his last six matches. His 23 goals last season propelled the Seagulls to promotion, having achieved a similar feat with the Eagles, whom he scored 47 times for during his four seasons in south London.

View From The Opposition

Chris Hughton

Chris Hughton: "We'll certainly go into the game in good spirits, because we will have gained a lot [from the performance against Manchester United].

"We are up against a Palace side on the back of a last-minute winner [against Stoke] and there's nothing that lifts you as a team as much as that.

"And it will be a different type of game. The onus was on Manchester United to win it, we are at home on Tuesday and the onus turns around."

Team News

Christian Benteke

Hodgson has revealed that there are no new injury concerns following the win against the Potters, but Christian Benteke could return up front for Palace after coming off the bench in his last two outings.

Chung-yong Lee will miss the game with a muscle injury, while Connor Wickham is still a couple of months away.

Steve Sidwell remains the only injury for the Seagulls, but Hughton changed his team for the first time in five matches at Old Trafford, and he must decide whether to stick with Solly March or recall winger Jose Izquierdo.

Matchday Officials

For the third time already this season, Andre Marriner takes charge of a Palace game, having overseen the Eagles' 2-0 defeat to Swansea City in August and the win against Chelsea in October, but that was one of only six wins from the 19 games he has refereed.

Referee: Andre Marriner
Assistant Refs: Scott Ledger and Simon Beck
Fourth Official: Mike Jones

Matchday Stats

Wilfried Zaha

Brighton's only win over Palace in their last seven matches in all competitions was 3-0 in the Championship in 2012-13.

The Seagulls have failed to score in the first half in four of their six home games. They have drawn each of their last three games at the Amex Stadium, winning the previous two.

Palace have lost all six away league games this season, failing to score in any of them. They have equalled the club record for longest away losing streak from the beginning of a top flight campaign, first set in 1980/81.

Their last away Premier League victory came at Liverpool in April. They have failed to score during the subsequent eight matches, equalling the club league record for consecutive away fixtures without a goal, set in 1950/51.

Palace could equal the Premier League record of nine consecutive away matches without a goal, set by West Ham United from September 2006 to January 2007.

Match Reports

Report: Brighton and Hove Albion 0-0 Crystal Palace

28 November 2017

Palace recorded their first clean sheet of the Premier League season at the expense of their local rivals as the Eagles and Brighton played out a goalless draw at the Amex Stadium.

In a game of very few opportunities, Wilfried Zaha went close for the visitors early on when he forced Mathew Ryan into a point-blank stop, while the Seagulls’ best chance came when Andros Townsend was forced to clear off his own line to prevent Glenn Murray from coming back to haunt his former club.

After a four-year wait for a derby, unsurprisingly the game kicked off amidst a feverish atmosphere created by both sets of fans, but it was the visiting supporters from south London who had the first breathless moment on 14 minutes as they went close to seeing their team take the lead.

A goal-kick from Wayne Hennessey was flicked on by the returning Christian Benteke into Zaha’s path, who in turn found his strike partner. A pair of Brighton defenders blocked the Belgian’s attempt but the ball squirmed out to Zaha, who forced Ryan into an excellent reaction stop just as he seemed to set to once again net a famous goal on the south coast.

That would be as dangerous as Hodgson’s team got during a tight first half, which as it progressed the Seagulls began to get stronger. On 21 minutes Lewis Dunk powerfully met a Pascal Gross corner with his head which Wayne Hennessey managed to claim, and then six minutes later the Welshman was called into action again when Jose Izquierdo was afforded too much space to jink into the box and get a shot away that forced the Eagles keeper into another save, with Dale Stephens blazing the rebound horribly over from range.

There was real danger when a swift counter-attack saw Gross spurn a three-on-three opportunity when he shot tamely at Hennessey, but while they were quietened for most of the half, Palace showed they had the ability to nick a goal and Luka Milivojevic nodded a Yohan Cabaye corner over before a tense 45 minutes drew to a close.

In the early stages of the second half, Brighton forced a series of corners which led to Dunk rippling the side-netting with a backheel, and it seemed that set-pieces would be the most likely avenue for Chris Hughton’s team to take the lead and another excellent Gross delivery found Shane Duffy who sent an effort onto the roof of the Eagles net.

The pressure continued to mount and Stephens went much closer than his previous attempt with a strike from 30 yards that whistled past Hennessey’s post, but as the game ticked towards the final 10 minutes the more likely one moment of brilliance would take the derby-day spoils and Zaha nearly produced it during a swift counter-attack, but couldn’t quite replicate his play-off heroics as he blazed into the travelling support.

As another aerial bombardment commenced, the Eagles were indebted to Townsend who managed to knock the ball off the line with his knee to prevent Murray from scoring against the team he helped get promoted with a header from yet another corner, and the sriker was soon replaced by Tomar Hemed but was afforded a warm departure from the Palace fans.

In the dying moments, Ruben Loftus-Cheek tried to curl the ball home for a memorable late winner for Hodgson’s team but could only find Ryan who made a comfortable stop, and James Tomkins sent a speculative effort wide of the mark from 35 yards, meaning it would prove to be just a solitary, but still useful, point gained for Palace.

Brighton: Ryan, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Suttner, Knockaert, Gross (Brown 81), Stephens, Propper, Izquierda (March 70), Murray (Hemed 84). Subs not used: Krul, Schelotto, Goldson, Kayal.

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Sakho, Tomkins, Schlupp, Loftus-Cheek, Milivojevic, Cabaye (McArthur 65), Townsend, Zaha, Benteke. Subs not used: Speroni, Van Aanholt, Fosu-Mensah, Dann, Puncheon, Sako.
