With Brightons current injury list, over-selling of decent players, poor midfield and the battering at Luton in the week. Coupled with Palace actually play some attacking football and trying to score against Sheffield Utd. There is absolutely no need for old man Hodgson to park the bus today and cling on for a draw.

We could do with the 3 points and it is a good opportunity to get them.

Sheffield U and Burnley are as good as gone, but with Luton, Wolves, Bournemouth racking up points, and Toney back for Brentford, the team finishing in 18th place could have a relatively high number of points.

I can think it depends if Eze starts.
Brighton don't play a defensive midfielder as such so Eze .ay be afforded more space than usual if he's fit.
If he doesn't play we don't have someone in a similar mould.
If Hodgson plays Hughes or Schlupp in the advanced role I think you can forget it.

Didn't Roy state Eze needs a scan so this would mean he is injured.

I think the scan was precautionary in nature.
Roy was asked in the press conference if Eze would play and he responded that he 'didn't know.'
Reading between the lines it seems Eze wants to play, but if the scan shows something not right then he won't play.

Kin ‘ell, we’re doomed!!

Things have improved though, at least we’ve moved on from being a one man team with Wilf to a two man team with Eze and Olise

You either have hamstring issue or do not it's very clear without a scan.

Any one who has competed in sports will know if something is not right.

Doesnt matter if he wants to play it's what is best for the team and his health.

People do play when they shouldn't this is an issue not only in football but many sports.

The only reason we played such an exciting first half on Tuesday was because we went a goal down so quickly.

Hopefully, we won't go a goal down so quickly today, however that means we will of course set up for a 0-0.

Leopards/spots etc..

Already setting things up to have a good old moan, well done.

Mate - this is Roy. Of course we're set up for a draw. And look at the starting line up! I hope to be eating my words in a couple hours, maybe Munoz is the key to unlocking our attacking threat!

No Eze and Olise starts on the bench. Let's go for 0-0.
