The latest instalment of the M23 derby kicks off on Monday night as Crystal Palace head down to Brighton.

Whilst these two sides have created a derby which much of the rest of the Premier League don’t really understand, this showdown could have real ramifications for the relegation zone.

Despite going into this on the back of two defeats, Hodgson is firmly loyal to his players, and he will keep changes to a minimum.

Gary Cahill is back fit and could replace Cheikhou Kouyate at centre back and with Wilf Zaha still sidelined, Jean-Philippe Mateta could come back in.

As for Brighton, boss Graham Potter will also refrain from tinkering about too much, with key pair Adam Webster and Tariq Lamptey still out.

But with just three goals scored in their last five games, he could juggle around his attacking options, with Danny Welbeck and Aaron Connolly both potentially returning.

And it’ll be a late start on the South Coast with an 8pm kick off at the AMEX Stadium.
