Seagulls may have to settle for draw at Eagles
Sky Sports Premier League, 8pm Monday
Brighton got the better of their arch-rivals Crystal Palace in both Premier League meetings last season and will be confident of success at Selhurst Park after their recent victory at Arsenal.
However, they may not get much space to express themselves with Palace likely to get behind the ball as they have a number of defensive absentees.
The home team may not look to push forward too much, which could result in a game with few opportunities, so it could easily finish as a draw.
