What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Brighton
Crystal Palace have struggled for points recently but their performances will give them hope of moving away from the Premier League relegation zone between now and the end of the season, as well as claiming bragging rights over bitter rivals Brighton.
Palace looked on course for a vital win last weekend until they conceded a late equaliser at Bournemouth which has left them three points above the drop zone.
Brighton wasted the chance to take a big step towards safety when they could only draw at home to Huddersfield and now face a daunting run of fixtures.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace have played four of the top six in recent weeks and lost by just one goal on each occasion, suggesting they are much better than their league position suggests.
A comfortable win at Huddersfield and the draw at Bournemouth points to their results improving during a more favourable run of fixtures, especially if Palace can be more clinical than they were last weekend.
Boss Roy Hodgson said: “If we can continue to play like that for the next five games we have to believe we can take enough points. I have confidence in the team and the team showed they have confidence in themselves.
“But it’s going to be a dogfight with all the teams down there and basically it can boil down to the fact that you score some lucky goals or survive some really hairy escapes.”
A Look At Brighton’s Betting Odds
A win last week would have taken Brighton to 37 points and that may prove enough for Premier League safety but they could instead face an anxious run-in.
Their two remaining home games are against Tottenham and Manchester United while they also face trips to Burnley, Manchester City and Liverpool.
They managed just one goal in matches against Everton, Leicester and Huddersfield while Palace have netted twice in four of their last five outings.
Wilfried Zaha is a huge threat and Luka Milivojevic has netted in three successive games, so we fear Palace will have too much attacking quality for their rivals.
