Brighton's Murray an injury doubt for Burnley trip

There will be increased security at the Amex on Tuesday

There will be increased security at the Amex on Tuesday

Those violent scenes were not repeated on Tuesday but Brighton were reduced to 10 men four minutes after going ahead when Shane Duffy was shown a straight red for attempting to head butt Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt.

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.

Balogun's goal is the second fastest goal by a substitute in Premier League history. This time it was the Seagulls who were at a numerical disadvantage and still managed to complete an incredible over their rivals.

Elsewhere, West Ham secured a 3-1 win over Cardiff City while AFC Bournemouth got all the three points after they pipped Huddersfield Town 2-1.

It is questionable whether Palace will contribute to the tally unless Zaha rediscovers his goalscoring touch, although it is worth noting that they have conceded at least two goals in eight of the 10 matches where they have failed to keep a clean sheet. The Ivory Coast global created the opening that Milivojevic saw blocked by Bernardo but contributed little else in a dismal performance from Roy Hodgson's side.

Despite making history with his awesome strike, just 25 seconds after coming off the bench, Balogun chose instead to cite the fans fantastic support and special unity in the team for Tuesday's 3-1 win. A Luka Milivojevic penalty just under 10 minutes from the end was Palace's consolation. Brighton will take on Burnley at Turf Moor on the same day.
