Palace upend Brighton, move six points clear of relegation

Benteke and Sorloth are back to boost Crystal Palace

Record signing Jose Izquierdo scored the fifth goal of an action-packed first half in the 34th and Brighton had the better of the second half without finding the equalizer.

The Eagles now sit six points clear of the relegation zone and just a point adrift of Brighton, who remain in 13th position in the standings. Mullery was fuming after a disallowed goal and then being denied an equaliser when Brian Horton scored from the spot, only for referee Ron Challis to order a retake even though it was Palace players who had encroached into the box.Horton, inevitably, missed.

It is, though, hard to see tomorrow passing off so quietly.

The Seagulls came close to levelling the scores just before the hour mark, as Glenn Murray stretched to get his foot on Kayal's looping cross towards the far post, however his effort went narrowly wide of Hennessey's right-hand post.

Swansea City manager tips Jordan Ayew to excel in Everton clash
Swansea are four points above the relegation zone and have won their last four games in front of their own fans. The draw was only good enough for the Welsh side to drop down into 17th, five points clear of the bottom three.

Hodgson's side are now three points clear of the drop zone, although 18th-placed Southampton do have a game in hand. We're going to be very anxious and there's no doubt that the anxiety will find its way from the crowd out onto the field and all I can hope for is that the players show their experience and stand up to it.

"Options up front are a nice problem to have". Considering they play one club in the top half of the table in their last five games, they'll have a great shot at staying if they can take care of business.

Of that prospect, Hughton says: 'It would be everything. Brighton were beaten at Everton and at home to Leicester before being held by Huddersfield in a 1-1 draw last week.

The Clarets were soon two ahead as Kevin Long notched his first-ever league goal for the club, rising to convert Johann Berg Gudmundsson's deep corner.

In Saturday's late games, Liverpool hosts Bournemouth and runaway leader Manchester City is at Tottenham.

But with local bragging rights on the line, as well as precious points, Palace boss Hodgson knows the pressure that his players will be under after previously steering West Brom and Fulham to survival.

These clubs may be relatively recent rivals but this is a derby which really means something.
