Monday’s meeting of the offbeat derby, Crystal Palace vs Brighton, will have unusually large repercussions in a heady Selhurst Park (start time 3pm ET Monday on NBCSN and online at NBCSports.com).
A draw to Liverpool and losses to Chelsea and Manchester United mean Brighton could top the Premier League table after six weeks into the 2021-2022 season if the Seagulls can beat their M23 derby rivals.
Even a draw would keep Brighton within a point of leaders Liverpool and in a group with four other teams at 13 points (Everton, Man City, Chelsea, Manchester United).

Will Bissouma play? Because he’s been great this season, but could be the difference between a draw or a win. There’s not much to divide about the performance of the rivals early in the season and this could come down to who gets the tricks of the trade. Crystal Palace 1-1 Brighton.
