The Seagulls lost to the Eagles 1-2. Christian Benteke and Michy Batshuayi were substitutes at kick-off. A magnificent heel from Mateta on a pass from Ayew in the 28th allowed Palace to lead at rest.
The Dutchman Veltman equalized in the 55th. In additional time (90th + 4), Benteke, who came into play in the 75th minute, gave the visitors three points with a superb volley.
In the standings, the Londoners gain a place and find themselves 13th with 32 units. Brighton, who remained in six games without defeat, retains 16th place with 26 points, four more than Fulham (18th) the first relegation.
Trossard, very active, and his teammates dominated in terms of possession without ever being able to fault the defense set up by Roy Hodgson in the first period. After Veltman’s equalizer, Brighton continued to push to no avail despite a total of 23 shots on goal. And it was really against the course of the game that Benteke converted Townsend’s serve in a nice way as we moved towards a split.
