After an FA Cup break, there can be few better places to start the return of England’s elite division than down on the South Coast for this fixture in particular.
A heated rivalry anyway, Palace have morphed into a much more progressive team under the stewardship of Patrick Vieira and, while Graham Potter’s Brighton are much further along in their process, provide a much different challenge to the one Roy Hodgson posed the Seagulls.
Two footballing teams who like to get on the ball, it should be an entertaining watch.
