Crystal Palace will meet Brighton and Hove Albion in the infamous M23 derby on Tuesday night and will have been buoyed by the fact that they have a relatively full-strength side, according to the club’s official website.

Despite being miles apart from each other in terms of location, the rivalry between the two sides has been intense and has only further been highlighted since both teams are in the Premier League.

Roy Hodgson will want to make sure his Eagles are up for the game against their rivals and going by the historic meetings, it appears the south London outfit generally always are.

Palace have not been beaten by the Seagulls in the league since 2013 and have a great chance of extending that record further when they meet at the AMEX Stadium.

Hodgson is able to call upon a number of his players for the clash, with only Christian Benteke the only absentee for the visitors.

Palace will be looking to build on their win against Burnley at the weekend, as they managed to break two unwanted streaks.

The victory was the Eagles first at Selhurst Park this season, whilst it also put an end to a winless run of eight games in the process.
