Premier League report: Brighton 3 Crystal Palace 1

Luka Milivojevic of Crystal Palace scores a penalty for his team's first goal

Luka Milivojevic of Crystal Palace scores a penalty for his team's first goal

Despite making history with his incredible strike, just 25 seconds after coming off the bench, Balogun chose instead to cite the fans fantastic support and special unity in the team for Tuesday's 3-1 win.

That could have been a turning point but Leon Balogun, sent on to fill the hole in defence left by Duffy, made it...

Murray's replacement Florin Andone also scored in the win over Palace and the Romanian forward is expected to lead the line again on Saturday.

Brighton showed great character in responding to conceding a first-minute goal at 10-man Huddersfield Town on Saturday by going on to win 2-1.

Brighton tried to hold out for a fourth Premier League clean sheet of the season but were unable to do so as Milivojevic scored a penalty for Palace after Wilfried Zaha was fouled by Balogun, though it was nothing but a consolation.




Brighton and Palace share a feisty rivalry with the fixture dubbed the "M23 derby" after the road that links the two clubs and last season's fixture was marred by crowd disturbances. The fact that two of their goals came while they were a man light and were not scored by Murray will be a huge boost for Hughton.

Wolves are the only bottom-half team to have beaten the Hammers in five matches, with Pellegrini's side winning three of the other four (and scoring three or more in each of those wins).

Brighton are 10th in the table with 21 points while Burnley are second from bottom on nine points.

McArthur gave away a penalty during the game, which Glenn Murray converted.

The Seagulls are unbeaten in three games as they head to Turf Moor.
