Crystal Palace won’t be too disappointed with their recent results in the Premier League as they’ve managed to take points off Manchester United and Arsenal over the past month or so.
The Eagles will have their sights set on climbing up the table and into the top half, with a successful January transfer window helping their cause massively.
Interestingly, Crystal Palace will travel to the Amex Stadium to face Brighton and Hove Albion later on tonight in their next Premier League fixture. The Seagulls have been a dominant force at home in the current campaign, so the Eagles will be hoping they can silence their supporters by securing a victory.
Theefore, it’s obvious that this Crystal Palace DUO will silence the Amex tonight…
Andros Townsend has been one of the standout performers for Crystal Palace in the current campaign, with four goals and one assist to his name as the club’s top scorer.
The winger is crucial to the way the Eagles operated as he often makes use of his pace and skill out wide to work himself into a promising position to either cut inside or whip a ball into the box.
Brighton have been defensively sound in front of home support at the Amex this season, but if Townsend is at his best later on today then the Seagull’s impressive home record will be shattered.
Wilfried Zaha hasn’t been at his best this season for Crystal Palace, but there’s no doubt that he has the ability to unlock any defence in the Premier League on his day.
His two strongest attributes are his pace and trickery, which makes it almost impossible for defenders to handle him in the final third, with an eagle eye for goal topping it all off.
Crystal Palace could start to soar up the Premier League table if the Ivorian international steps up to the plate, starting with today’s match against Brighton.
