The 2017/18 FA Cup fixture list was extremely busy on the third round weekend and two teams that will expect to win the tournament – Liverpool and Manchester United – won on the first night of games. Monday night is the final third round games apart from replays and it includes two Premier League teams in Brighton and Hove Albion and Crystal Palace on the English south coast.

Albion have had strong results so far this season and they are currently in 12th place in the league. This is higher than many expected, and they have not spent a lot of money on new players. The club will be aware that after 22 matches they are in a strong position but this could easily change. They are just three points away from the bottom three relegation zone, but have lost just one of their last five.



Crystal Palace have had a difficult season, but after getting Roy Hodgson in as their new manager they should not now be relegated. The team have 14 points from their 22 games and will be aiming to get to the FA Cup final, as they did two seasons ago when they were beaten by Manchester United at Wembley.

Although both teams have had lots of matches over the Christmas period, they have had just under a week free to prepare for this FA Cup game and should have a fresh group of players. This could result in two strong starting line-ups from Chris Hughton and Hodgson. For an ideal sports betting website for this game, is worth checking out.



When Brighton and Crystal Palace played each other earlier in the season, it was a 0-0 draw between the teams. Tipbet have correct score markets and this is offered at 5.75 to be the same result.
