Zaha brace settles thriller with Brighton

Roy Hodgson gives update on Schlupp's injury return Crystal Palace v Brighton has extra edge, says Roy Hodgson

Hodgson deserves credit for helping lift Palace out of the bottom three after the team lost their opening seven league matches. Jose Izquierdo did bring Brighton back to within one when he skilfully scored 11 minutes prior to the interval, but it stayed that way throughout a nervy second half, Roy Hodgson's men thankful for a poor late Murray miss as they battled to an invaluable three points in their bid for survival.

The Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Brighton will be broadcast live on NBCSN.

The 25-year-old has been a bright spark in a pretty grim season for Crystal Palace, with his trickery and speed proving to be a constant danger for Premier League defences up and down the country.

All five goals came amid a frenzied first half as Wilfried Zaha's brace either side of James Tomkins' second goal in three matches secured a much-needed first home win in four attempts.

Jordan Ayew: 'Swansea City slowly moving in right direction'
Swansea City picked up a vital point in their search for Premier League safety against Everton on Saturday afternoon. I will fight to the end and we will continue to do our best for Swansea to stay in the league'.

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.

The talismanic Zaha and Andros Townsend excelled as a front two and Hodgson's verdict was not a glowing endorsement of regular frontman Christian Benteke, absent with a groin injury. They all have their players that can have a big influence, but he's really developed as a player in the last few seasons. However that run-in sees them face all of the Premier League's top four sides, along with making the trip to an in-form Burnley.

Murray was particularly prolific during a run of results culminating in victory over Arsenal at the start of last month which saw Hughton named manager of the month and that appeared to have guaranteed Brighton's Premier League status for another season. The club has worked incredibly hard to get here.' However, defeats by Leicester and Everton plus a home draw with Huddersfield last week - in which Dutch midfielder Davy Propper received a red card that keeps him out of tomorrow's game - have led to the odd glance over their shoulder.

'It's not a classic type of derby; it's one that means more to both clubs than to people outside it.
