Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion face off in an English Premier League showdown on Saturday at Selhurst Park Stadium. 

Crystal Palace got out to a fast start to the season but they have really struggled coming into this game losing each of their last two games. In Crystal Palace’s last game against Chelsea the defense was a big issue giving up four runs and that led to the loss. In that last game Crystal Palace only had four shots with zero of them going on goal. Crystal Palace also only 29 percent of the possession in that game, and if they want any chance to come away with a victory, they need to find a way to have more control over the possession or they are going to lose this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Brighton & Hove Albion who come into this game near the bottom of the EPL standings and in the last game even though they scored two goals, they gave up four goals to Everton and that led to the loss. One big positive takeaway from that game was they were able to have 57 percent of the possession, but they had goaltender issues, and that led to the loss. This is a Brighton team that also scored two gaols earlier this season against Manchester United, it’s just clear at this point the defense is a big issue and something that is going to need to be cleaned up going forward. If the defense continues to struggle, this is a team that is going to be relegated and won’t be playing next season in the Premier League.
