Brighton host Crystal Palace this evening, looking to continue their impressive run of form with a win in the M23 derby.
Graham Potter’s side are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games and head into this one as firm favourites, given Palace’s struggles of late.
The Eagles are looking to avoid a third straight defeat, after a dismal 0-3 loss against Burnley last time out.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.
When is it?
The match will kick off at 8pm GMT this evening.
How can I watch it?
Live coverage of the game will be shown on Sky Sports Premier League. Subscribers can also stream the match live on the Sky Sports website and SkyGo app.
What is the team news?
Brighton could be boosted by the return of Alireza Jahanbakhsh, who has missed his side’s last nine games with a hamstring injury. Adam Webster’s presence is doubtful, and Tariq Lamptey remains out.
Palace are expected to be without Wilfried Zaha again, but midfielder James McCarthy was back in training last week.
Brighton: Sanchez; White, Dunk, Webster, Veltman, Gross, Bissouma, Burn, Mac Allister, Trossard, Welbeck
Crystal Palace: Guaita; Ward, Dann, Cahill, Van Aanholt, Townsend, Kouyate, Riedewald, Eze, Benteke, Mateta
Crystal Palace: 5/1
Brighton have been impressive of late, finally turning promising performances into consistent results. Their xG, both offensively and defensively, suggests they should be in the top half of the table, and they should have too much for a Palace side badly missing the influence of Zaha. Brighton 2-0 Crystal Palace.
