Brighton will target a second successive Premier League win when they entertain arch rivals Crystal Palace at the Amex on Tuesday.

Albion won 2-1 at Huddersfield on Saturday, while Palace recorded a 2-0 victory at home to Burnley.

The Seagulls sit 11th in the Premier League with 18 points from 14 games, six points clear of 14th-placed Palace.

What time does Brighton v Crystal Palace kick off?

Kick-off is 7.45pm. The sides played twice at the Amex last season, with the Premier League match finishing 0-0 before Albion progressed in the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory.

Is the game on TV?

No. Albion are not on television again until the match with Arsenal on Boxing Day.

What's the team news?

Albion will have to make a decision on captain Bruno, who limped off late on in the win at Huddersfield.

Glenn Murray and Beram Kayal are likely to come back into the starting line-up after both came on as late substitutes in the win at Huddersfield. Seagulls boss Chris Hughton also has to decide whether to recall Anthony Knockaert to the starting 11.

Dale Stephens serves the final match of his three-game suspension.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson could name the same starting line-up for the third successive match, after a 0-0 draw with Manchester United and 2-0 win against Burnley.

Who is the referee?

Kevin Friend will be the man in the middle. He has shown 31 yellow cards in nine Premier League matches this season.

The assistant referees are Matthew Wilkes, Simon Beck, with Simon Hooper the fourth official.

What are the betting odds?

Brighton are slight favourites to win on PaddyPower at 7/4, with the draw 15/8 and a Crystal Palace win 9/5.

Glenn Murray is 5/1 to score the first goal, just ahead of the no goalscorer bet at 11/2.

Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha is 13/2, just ahead of Albion striker Florin Andone, who scored his first Seagulls goal against Huddersfield, at 7/1.

Shane Duffy, who netted his third goal of the season at Huddersfield, is 25/1 to open the scoring.

Murray is 9/5 to net anytime, with Zaha 5/2 and Andone 13/5.

A repeat of the 0-0 draw at the Amex last season is 11/2. Albion are 9/1 to win 2-1, while Palace are 10/1 to win by that scoreline.
