Comments:

League position: 9th Crystal Palace failed in their attempt to equal their club record of keeping clean sheets in four consecutive games in the top division. Wilfried Zaha had now equalled Joel Ward’s club record for the most appearances in the Premier League (180). He already held Palace’s club record for the most goals scored in the competition (35). This was manager Roy Hodgson’s 100th game in charge of the Eagles in all competitions (won 37, lost 39).

Comments:

League position: 13th Brighton and Hove Albion had now won one of their last six games in the Premier League (lost three). Only Glenn Murray (25) and Pascal Gross (11) had now scored more goals in the Premier League for Albion than Neal Maupay (seven). The Seagulls had now taken 20 points from their 17 games so far in this Premier League season; one point fewer than at the same stage of the previous season.
