In the final duel of the 17th round of the Premier League on Monday December 16, Crystal Palace will play against Brighton – we made a forecast.
“Glaziers” in the last rounds showed a pretty good level of football. Roy Hodgson’s team has not lost in the championship for three consecutive matches, earning seven points in them. Away, Crystal Palace defeated Burnley (2: 0) and ended in a draw match with Watford (0: 0), while at home he recorded three points in the asset in the match against Bournemouth (1: 0).
I must say that this season the London club in the native arena lost only to teams from the leading group. “Glaziers” lost to Liverpool (1: 2), Leicester (0: 2) and Manchester City (0: 2). In all other home matches, Crystal Palace earned points.
At the moment, Hodgson’s wards are in tenth place in the standings. They are seven points ahead of the relegation zone and the same amount behind the first four.
Disqualification is serving Mamad Sako. At the club’s infirmary, Jeffrey Schlupp, Joel Ward. Questioned by Patrick van Anholt and Max Mayer.
Seagulls also showed good results in the two previous rounds. First, Brighton managed to earn three points in a guest meeting with Arsenal (2: 1), after which he ended a draw at home with Wolverhampton (2: 2)
Four points earned allowed the club to move slightly away from the danger zone in the standings. At the moment, “Brighton” is in 13th place in four points from the “red” line.
Despite the victory over Arsenal, away play is still the team’s weakness. Prior to this success in six matches, Brighton earned only one point on the rival fields, scoring three goals in them.
Dale Stevens will serve a suspension. Injured Solly March and Jose Iscierdo. Questioned by Aaron Connolly.
