A busy weekend of Premier League action gets underway on Friday and there can be few better places to start.
Crystal Palace travel to bitter rivals Brighton and Hove Albion, pitting two of the most progressive sides in the division against each other.
Last time out, a late Neal Maupay goal rescued a point for Graham Potter’s side away at Selhurst Park in a dramatic end to what was largely a relatively dull affair.
Still, a meeting between these two is hugely steeped in drama. Sucker punches have emerged in both recent derbies and, since that September meeting, both sides have impressed.
A win for Palace could see them move just a point behind Brighton, albeit having played a game more, while Brighton could well put pressure on Manchester United in seventh by triumphing in front of a home crowd.
