The M23 derby returns this Saturday when Crystal Palace face their bitter rivals Brighton at Selhurst Park.
Roy Hodgson's men are eight points above the drop zone after 29 games and another victory this weekend would give them a huge chance of staying up.
On the other hand, Brighton are struggling, with Chris Hughton's side just five points away from the bottom three.
Brighton eased their fears by beating Huddersfield last weekend but they will be desperate to avoid the drop this week.
Palace left-back Pape Souare is not ready to return from a dislocated shoulder, while Mamadou Sakho has had a knee operation and remains on the sidelines.
Brighton's Leon Balogun faces a late fitness test due to a shoulder injury but the game will come too soon for fellow midfielder Pascal Gross.
The Seagulls are looking to complete the league double over Palace for the first time since 1983-84, when they met in the second tier.
Brighton ended a seven-match losing run in the Premier League following a 1-0 win over Huddersfield last weekend. The Seagulls now take on an in-form Crystal Palace side for a chance to move up the table.
Palace went eight points clear of the relegation zone thanks to their latest 3-1 win over Burnley. Roy Hodgson’s side are making a name for themselves as the away kings having won 20 of their 33 points on the road this season.
The situation at Selhurst Park, on the other hand, is increasingly concerning. Palace have the second worst home record in the Premier League this season with only three wins.
Brighton, meanwhile, will be looking to secure consecutive league wins for the first time since December. Statistically, the Seagulls struggle in London having lost five of their last seven trips to the capital in the league.
With Palace struggling at home and Brighton completely out-of-form, the betting recommendation is to back the draw.
In terms of the head to head record both teams have won two of their last five encounters with the fifth game ending in a tie. The current price on a draw is an attractive one at 5/2.
