Balogun Hails Brighton’s ‘Outstanding Team Performance’ In EPL Win Over Palace

Balogun Hails Brighton’s ‘Outstanding Team Performance’ In EPL Win Over Palace

Murray scored his eighth goal of the season with a penalty in Brighton's 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Tuesday but the 35-year-old sustained the injury in a fall and was substituted in the first half.

Winger Jose Izquierdo could also miss the game at Turf Moor with a knee problem while defender Shane Duffy is suspended after picking up a red card in the last game.

And Tomkins' most egregious error came five minutes later, when the defender inexplicably gifted possession back to Brighton's Florin Andone in the box, allowing the attacker to pick his pocket and put the home side 3-0 up.

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. Hughton decided not to start leading scoring Glenn Murray and Alireza Jahanbakhsh against Huddersfield.

Missing British backpacker case is now a murder investigation in New Zealand
Despite a major police search and public campaign for information, no further sightings of the backpacker have been confirmed. They revealed yesterday that their investigations included questioning the man who was with Millane when she was last seen.

"To give them three goals is not acceptable". Zaha has been involved in half of Palace's goals this season.

In his 300th Palace appearance, Zaha was up against the side he has scored more goals versus than any other.

"In every football match you can point to episodes and things being different but the second goal is something that we have to take total responsibility for and the third even more so; it wasn't even an attack, just a clearance".

Brighton have now won six Premier League games this term and are placed 10th with 21 points in the EPL log.
