Brighton vs Crystal Palace team news

Brighton

Brighton were hit hard early on away at Luton, counting two goals in the opening three minutes and never managed to recover from this setback. Luton added another two goals to secure a 4-0 victory that nobody saw coming, so it's back to the drawing board for Roberto De Zerbi's side.

Solomon March, Julio Enciso Espinola, Anssumane Fati, Joel Veltman and James Milner all look set to miss out this weekend due to injury, while Kaoru Mitoma and Simon Adingra are still away on international duty.

Predicted Lineup: Steele (GK), Dunk, Estupiñán, Julio, van Hecke, Hinshelwood, Groß, Gilmour, Buonanotte, Welbeck & Pedro

Crystal Palace

The Eagles were made to work hard to claim their home win against Sheffield United in midweek. The hosts had to come from behind twice to win the match 3-2 thanks to a brace from Eberechi Eze and one from Michael Olise in what was a really entertaining ninety minutes at Selhurst Park.

Cheick Doucoure, Rob Holding and Joel Ward will miss the trip to the south coast on Saturday through injury, while there is a slight doubt over Eberechi Eze who felt his hamstring tighten against Sheff Utd in midweek.

Predicted Lineup: Henderson (GK), Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell, Richards, Hughes, Lerma, Schlupp, Olise, Ayew & Mateta

Player to Watch: Pascal Gross

Brighton's German international midfielder has been their key playmaker so far this season, creating six goals in the league and chipping in with three of his own.

With Mitoma at the Asia Cup, Adinga at AFCON 2023 and the likes of March and Fati out injured, there is more pressure on Gross to create goalscoring opportunities for his teammates right now.

We're backing the veteran German midfielder to impress against Crystal Palace on Saturday, helping to guide Brighton back to winning ways.
