Brighton hope Glenn Murray able to shoulder the burden again by Jack Fox Published

A clumsy challenge by James McArthur on Jose Izquierdo, as Palace struggled to clear their lines and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Milivojevic comically collided, gave the hosts a 24th-minute penalty.

Glenn Murray put them ahead against his former club with a penalty shortly before Shane Duffy, Brighton's Ireland defender, was given a red card for headbutting Patrick Van Aanholt.

Yet the Seagulls made it 2-0 when Leon Balogun, on for the injured Murray, hooked home with his first touch. The Romanian finished off a fast break by striking the ball into the far corner past Wayne Hennessey.

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.

Murray returned to the starting line-up after being rested against Huddersfield and Andone's victor at the John Smith's Stadium may have made Hughton's decision tough to take. It was key for his first-half goal and kept Palace on their toes as the hosts sat back after the interval. However, Roy Hodgson's side remain only three points above the bottom three.

Dalton Harris has been crowned victor of the X Factor - but the Jamaican vocalist's road to success has not been an easy one. And Chic's Nile Rodgers said: 'Every performance of Dalton's has been flawless, and that's nearly impossible to achieve'.

Replays appeared to show the Palace man had touched the ball before the Colombian went down, but Glenn Murray converted the spot kick for his ninth league goal of the season.

No one will know more than him that he can't get away with that.

Four arrests were made in the centre of Brighton, three at Falmer station and three at the Amex Stadium.

Although Luka Milivojevic pulled one back from the penalty spot, it did not stop Chris Hughton's team moving into the Premier League's top 10. They travel to Burnley for their next game on Saturday.
