The Premier League season is still fresh and sports bettors should be cautious. This meeting between Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion promises to be an interesting one.

We should expect both teams to be fresh and ready for this match, as there is some time since both teams last played. Let's have a look at how the teams are doing!

Crystal Palace form and stats

OK but not perfect. That could be the conclusion for Crystal Palace's two home games in the Premier League so far this season, having collected 3 points here at Selhurst Park.

No payout for Crystal in their previous match, an away game at Chelsea that ended in defeat 0-4. Before that game, the home loss against Everton with the scoreline 1-2.

Crystal were outplayed and humiliated in their previous game, as mentioned in the paragraph above. They will need to reinstall their confidence before this one.

This is expected to be a close game, with Crystal Palace perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Crystal Palace as a small favourite), we find five games. Crystal has won three of these, drawn one and lost one.

It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Crystal Palace at home in the league. 2 on target and 2 scored by the opposition; from 2 matches.

Brighton & Hove Albion form and stats

Brighton & Hove Albion are doing rather OK so far in their away games in the Premier League, having played 2 games and collected 3 points (1 win, 0 draws and 1 loss).

Brighton are travelling again after losing away to Everton in their previous match (2-4). A 0-3 loss hosting Manchester United before that.

A crazy, crazy match with lots of goals last time out for Brighton, as mentioned above. 6 goals in that one, will this match be as much fun?

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found ten similar matches played by Brighton & Hove Albion in our archives, and the results are: four wins for Brighton, three draws and three defeats.

Brighton & Hove Albion have the goal stats of 5-4 (for/against) from 2 business trips in the league at this early stage of the season.

Head 2 Head
