Crystal Palace v Brighton & Hove Albion live stream, Monday 27 September, 8pm BST
Arch-rivals Crystal Palace and Brighton will renew hostilities under the floodlights at Selhurst Park on Monday night.
Patrick Vieira has made a decent start to life in south London, even if his new team have only won one of their five Premier League fixtures to date. That solitary success came in the form of a convincing 3-0 triumph over Tottenham in Palace’s last home game, while creditable draws against Brentford and West Ham have contributed to a points tally of five.
The Eagles were beaten 3-0 by Liverpool last time out, but even Jurgen Klopp acknowledged that the scoreline flattered his team. Palace had a sustained spell of pressure in the second half and created a handful of half-chances to equalise, before Liverpool put the game beyond them late on. Vieira has certainly succeeded in making Palace more aggressive and proactive, with less of an emphasis on the counter-attack as was the case under Roy Hodgson.
Brighton are flying high towards the top of the table after five rounds of fixtures. They went into the weekend in fourth place, with four wins from five and a better early record than Manchester City.
The Seagulls were let down by profligate finishing last season; their underlying performances were often much stronger than their results suggested. They seem to have developed a more clinical edge over the summer, although they were a little fortunate with several VAR decisions in the win over Leicester last weekend.
Brighton will have to make do without Adam Webster, Jurgen Locadia and Pascal Gross for their trip to the capital, but Graham Potter is hopeful that Yves Bissouma will be passed fit to play. Tariq Lamptey was an unused substitute against Leicester and could make an appearance here.
Palace remain without Ebere Eze and long-term absentee Nathan Ferguson, both of whom are recovering from achilles injuries. Jeff Schlupp is available again following a thigh injury, while Luka Milivojevic could replace Cheikhou Kouyate at the base of midfield. Vieira must again choose between Christian Benteke and Odsonne Edouard up top.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event in the UK.

UK TV schedule
Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
