Brighton and Crystal Palace meet once again in the 'M23 Derby' at the Amex Stadium this Saturday

From Brighton's Lewis Dunk to Palace's Wilfried Zaha, there's no shortage of quality on offer. Here's who makes our final cut from the two squads - including five from Palace and six from Brighton.

The goalkeeper has been a consistent performer for Albion. Great shot stopper and excellent levels of concentration
A tough call but gets the nod at right back. Hugely impressive and clam performer on his breakthrough season.
The former Chelsea and England defender has been excellent for Roy Hodgson's men this season. Experienced, calm on the ball and reads the game well.
The Albion skipper has hardly put a foot wrong this season. Plays at a high level each week. Solid defending and distribution from the back has been impressive.
The giant defender just gets the nod ahead of Patrick van Aanholt. Burn has been a real find for Brighton on the left side of the defence. Defends well, strides forward and is a threat from set pieces.
Working his way back to full fitness. A well balanced player with good pace. Takes on defenders and has a powerful shot with either foot. Brings goals and assists.
An experienced head in the Palace midfield. Knows what it takes to compete in the Premier League. Big player for Palace this season.
Dutch international has been a class performer for Brighton. Intelligent on the ball and very competitive in the midfield. Just needs a few more goals to his game.
The former Huddersfield man has proved his worth this season. Clever in possession and always looks to move forward. Contributes goals, assists and carries out defensive duties...what's not to like?
Competitive, fiery and knows where the goal is. Eight goals so far is a decent return from the Frenchman in his first season in the Premier League. Scored against Palace at Selhurst Park.
He has to be in. A match winner on his day.
