Brighton have unexpectedly discovered ruthlessness. The team that dropped so many points in games they dominated last season – including in February’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace – have maximised every opportunity to win six games from seven in all competitions. But form goes out the window in the M23 derby. Conor Gallagher has shone for Palace while the big decision for Patrick Vieira is whether to hand Odsonne Édouard a first start. Yves Bissouma is the main concern for Brighton after picking up a knee injury in the win over Leicester but he is back in training. Expect a tight encounter. Alex Reid
