Key Moments Recap :
Goal : 19′ 0 – 1 Glenn Murray
A hoof from Duffy is not intercepted by Tomkins, whose lazy header into the ground bounces into the path of Murray to smash into the bottom corner! A great finish! That’s Murray’s 100th league goal for Brighton!

Goal : 50′ Luka Milivojevic (pen.) 1 – 1
Milivojevic sends Ryan the wrong way and slots it down the right-hand side. That’s his ninth league goal this season. Palace are level!

Goals :74′ 1 – 2 Anthony Knockaert
WHAT A GOAL! Knockaert picks the ball up on the right flank. He cuts inside and moves the ball onto his left foot before delightfully curling his strike into the top corner off the inside of the post! That was unstoppable – what a strike!
