Game week 22 in the Premier League kicks off on Friday when Brighton host Crystal Palace.

The Seagulls are unbeaten in their last three league games, after beating Brentford and Everton on both sides of a 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

Things have been a little more overall for Palace, who conceded three against both Tottenham and West Ham but also put their own trio of goals past Norwich.

Here is everything you need to know about this game.

Enock Mwepu should overcome a hamstring injury in time for this one, and there is also a small chance that midfielder Lewis Dunk will return from his knee problem, even if you may not get your hopes up.

Yves Bissouma continues to be unavailable as he is away in the African Cup of Nations.

Conor Gallagher should return to the starting line-up after overcoming an illness, and he may well be joined by winger Michael Olise, who has impressed from the bench in recent weeks.

Palace has its own AFCON absences to worry about. Jordan Ayew, Cheikhou Kouyate and Wilfried Zaha are all missing at the moment.

These sides have met 24 times and each has had eight wins, eight draws and eight losses.

It’s been a while since Brighton won. They last beat Palace in March 2019, when Glenn Murray and Anthony Knockaert were on target, and have failed to beat the Eagles on their five attempts since then.

These two drew 1-1 earlier in the season but Palace finished 2020/21 at the top and took their own 2-1 win in February 2021.

These two are not always combined to score many goals, but it has been different lately. Palace’s last five games have all involved at least three strikes, while Brighton have netted twice in two of their last three games.

Brighton get into this feeling well, but Bissouma’s absence will hit hard. The same can be said about Palace, who may be struggling with Zaha outside the picture.

Graham Potter’s men should have enough to win this, and expect their typically resolute defense to cause real problems here.

Prediction: Brighton 2-0 Crystal Palace
