Two sides who will be looking to make a return to winning ways on their return from the international break, M23 rivals Crystal Palace and Brighton will face off for a derby showdown on Sunday afternoon.

While the Eagles might have opened the New Year in impressive fashion, the South London outfit were last seen getting hit with a 4-0 hammering at Stamford Bridge and they have really failed to build off of that shock victory over Manchester United last month.

On the flip side, not fairing much better as they entered the October break, Brighton also shipped a quartet of strikes as they saw Everton leave Goodison with a 4-2 win and managed to cash in on their 100% start to the 2020/2021 campaign.

Now on a three-match losing run across all competitions, it should also be noted that when the Seagulls last faced off against their bitter rivals they were hit with a late 1-0 defeat at the Amex.

You might be interested to know that a similar home victory at Selhurst Park this weekend can be found priced at 13/8 with William Hill.

Palace’s hometown struggles

While Crystal Palace might have shocked many as they eventually cruised to what was a deserved 3-1 victory at Old Trafford last month, Roy Hodgson’s men have failed to keep up that momentum.

Last seen putting in what was a worrying second-half display against Chelsea in West London as the former champions hit them for four, the one-time England boss will be concerned over his side’s recent issues on home soil continuing on from the enforced break.

Hit with a 2-1 defeat against a high-flying Everton last time out at Selhurst Park, the Eagles have now managed to win just one of their last six Premier League home fixtures continuing on from the summer and some feel they could be in for a relegation scrap this time around.

Conceding six goals in their back-to-back Premier League defeats and collecting just nine points over their last 12 top-flight games, you might be interested to know that Sunday’s hosts can be found priced at 13/8 with 888sport to once again ship over 1.5 goals.

Maupay to lead the charge

Although Brighton might have put in what was an impressive performance as they breezed their way to a 3-0 romp at St. James’ Park last month, Graham Potter’s side find themselves in almost an identical position to their M23 rivals.

Watching Manchester United secure what was a dramatic 3-2 win at the Amex while on Premier League duties, the one-time Swansea boss has seen his side lose each of their last three contests across all formats and they have mustered just three points from their first four appearances.

Last seen prior to the international break getting hit with a 4-2 defeat away at Goodison, fans on the South Coast will take some solace from Neal Maupay’s individual start to the 2020/2021 campaign.

Bagging what turned out to be a consolation strike against Everton earlier in the month, the Frenchman has landed three goals in as many Premier League outings and will lead Brighton’s line on Sunday.

You might be interested to know that Maupay is priced at 8/5 with Unibet to extend on that tally this weekend.
