PREVIEW: ALBION V CRYSTAL PALACE

27 November 2017

Brighton & Hove Albion host Crystal Palace at the Amex on Tuesday evening, as they looking to bounce back from Saturday’s narrow 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Ashley Young’s deflected second-half effort off Lewis Dunk was the difference between the two sides in an evenly-fought contest in the north west, and Chris Hughton’s men have a quick chance to make amends for the result. 

Their opponents were late 2-1 winners over Stoke City at the weekend but sit bottom of the Premier League table on eight points after 13 matches.

Tomorrow night's match will be the first top-flight meeting between the teams since they last met at Selhurst Park in 1981, when the Seagulls ran out 3-0 winners and completed a league double over their rivals.

TEAM NEWS:

Hughton confirmed on Monday afternoon that there are no fresh injury concerns ahead of the fixture against Roy Hodgson’s men. Steve Sidwell remains the only injury for the Seagulls, but the midfielder could step up his recovery with outside work next week.

Visiting striker Christian Benteke could be pushing for a start as he continues his return to fitness following a knee injury, but Connor Wickham and Chung-Yong Lee remain long-term absentees for the Eagles.

FORM: 

ALBION:

The Seagulls’ defeat at Old Trafford was their first in six matches following a good run of form, both on the road and at the Amex in recent weeks. It was only the side’s second loss in seven – with the other coming at a fellow top-six side – Arsenal.

Wins on the road against West Ham United and Swansea City respectively, as well as home draws with Everton, Southampton and Stoke City, mean Hughton’s men sit in ninth position ahead of the game with the Eagles. 

PALACE:

By contrast, Hodgson’s Crystal Palace occupy 20th position in the Premier League despite a recent upturn in fortunes. The side are without a point on the road this season, but have four points from their last two league matches with a home draw with Everton and a win over Stoke City on Saturday.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Wilfried Zaha

The winger has been deployed in more of a striker’s role this term, given the absence of Christian Benteke, and has three league goals so far. A strike against Chelsea in mid-October at Selhurst Park gave the Eagles their first win of the season.

He also netted in the 2-2 draw at home to West Ham United at the end of that month, as well as in the 2-2 stalemate with Everton a week-and-a-half ago. Zaha was also on the scoresheet the last time the two sides met in the 2013 Championship play-off semi-finals in 2013.

His eye-catching start to the season has led to potential suitors taking an interest, with north-London duo Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both reportedly looking to secure his services when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Brighton & Hove Albion drew their fourth home game in succession following a 0-0 stalemate against Crystal Palace at the Amex Stadium.

Albion had chances to break the deadlock in what was a fairly even contest, but they had to settle for a point against a Palace side who have now taken four points from two games.

Chris Hughton made two changes to the side that fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat at Manchester United at the weekend, with Markus Suttner replacing the injured Gaetan Bong at left-back and Jose Izquierdo coming back into the team in place of Solly March on Albion’s left-hand side.

It was a tight opening in a red-hot atmosphere, with misplaced passes aplenty as both teams looked to settle into the contest.

Maty Ryan was called into action on 13 minutes when he produced a superb double save to deny both Christian Benteke and then Wilfried Zaha on the rebound.

The hosts’ first chance came when Lewis Dunk rose highest to head Bruno’s corner towards goal but Wayne Hennessey saved on his right-hand side.

The Seagulls had an even better chance to take the lead when Jose Izquierdo, who had looked lively throughout the first half, saw his shot parried by Hennessey; but as the rebound fell to Dale Stephens on the edge of the area he skewed his shot wide.

On 32 minutes Davy Propper’s dangerous cross from the right skimmed up off the turf and into the grateful hands of Hennessey, with Anthony Knockaert lurking at the far post.

Albion countered soon after with Izquierdo finding Knockaert on the far side, but as the ball was cut back to Pascal Gross, his side-footed effort was claimed by Hennessey as the home side began to dominate.

Izquierdo picked up a yellow card for a late challenge on Yohan Cabaye at the start of the second half before Ryan easily stopped the Frenchman’s free-kick after Bruno had brought down Zaha on the edge of the area.

Albion had a succession of corners which Palace cleared, before Dunk flicked the last of the four set-piece deliveries into the side-netting at the near post.

The defender then picked up a caution when he was adjudged to have pulled back Zaha as Palace broke, and the visitors made a change soon after when Cabaye was replaced by James McArthur.

Shane Duffy headed Gross’s corner onto the roof of the net before Hughton introduced Solly March for Izquierdo with 20 minutes to go.

Stephens tried his luck from distance moments after but his shot fizzed wide of Hennessey’s near post, and Izzy Brown entered the action with ten minutes left to play as Gross made way.

Glenn Murray thought he'd broken the deadlock against his old club but his header was cleared off the line by Andros Townsend following an Albion corner, and the forward then made way for Tomer Hemed as Albion made their final switch.

Hennessey claimed another Albion ball into the area in the closing seconds and that was the last chance of note as Andre Marriner blew for full time. 

Albion: Ryan, Bruno ©, Dunk, Duffy, Suttner; Knockaert, Stephens, Propper, Izquierdo (March 70); Gross (Brown 81); Murray (Hemed 85).

Subs not used: Krul, Goldson, Schelotto, Kayal.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey; Ward, Tomkins, Sahko, Schlupp; Milivojevic, Cabaye (McArthur 66), Loftus-Cheek, Townsend, Zaha, Benteke.

Subs not used: Speroni, van Aanholt, Dann, Fosu-Mensah, Sako, Puncheon.
