Crystal Palace v Brighton team news

Crystal Palace: Michy Batshuayi is back after being unable to face parent club Chelsea last time out, while Jeffrey Schlupp and Connor Wickham should have recovered from injuries.

Gary Cahill and James Tomkins are still a week away from returning to full fitness, while Patrick van Aanholt is out until the end of the month. James McCarthy, however, is rated 50/50 to play.

Brighton: The international break has given Davy Propper, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Tariq Lamptey all a chance of being fit for this clash.

There was hope Jose Izquierdo could be ready to make his comeback on Sunday but the Colombian is unlikely to feature.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace v Brighton

Both sides need a win here and history suggests it could be a close encounter, with just one goal separating Palace and Brighton in four of their last six meetings.

A 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park back in December last year was a fair result. Wilfried Zaha and Neal Maupay were on the scoresheet and don’t be surprised if both players find the net again here.

Brighton’s goalscoring form means they should breach this Eagles defence at least once on Sunday, and the game could rest on how Hodgson’s side reacts to this attacking set-up.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace 2-2 Brighton
