Live coverage of Crystal Palace’s huge clash against Brighton at the AmEx stadium, including all roster, planned squads and injury news, details on how to watch on TV and all action

Hello and welcome to footballLondon live coverage of Brighton vs Crystal Palace from AmEx Stadium

This may be Crystal Palace’s biggest game of the season amid poor form with Fulham, Brighton and Burnley below mustering good form as the race to avoid relegation picks up

Roy Hodgson’s side appear to be safe this season, but are in the midst of yet another injury crisis, with Wilfried Zaha among the missing

Palace’s record without their star man is notoriously poor, so they hope he can return as soon as possible

Palace has stolen all three points! Ayew passes him through the center before finding Townsend on the left He crosses deep to the back post where Christian Benteke hits a lavish volley back to goal and into the far corner! Palace surely got all three points here

A final gap in defense of Gary Cahill sees Jahanbakhsh’s effort deflected back for a corner He leaves again, but the palace is clear

Benteke has a brief glimpse of the goal and shoots at his left foot, but he’s off balance and he flies

Palace after a long time makes its first foray into Brighton territory Eze whips a cross towards Mateta, but it’s clear

Lallana steams into the box to reach the end of a low cross, but the whip above the Palace bar hung, here

Alexis Mac Allister is substituted, Adam Lallana on Gary Cahill comes on the sidelines, looks like he’s got blood from a cut that needs attention

Brighton is building up the pressure, crossing Palace twice in two minutes and Cahill makes a vital block to deny Welbeck He’s late for successive turns, and there’s another scramble in the mouth of the goal, but Palace comes back to the level thanks to two blocks from Jairo Riedewald

Guaita descends quickly to make a low block from Trossard, Welbeck sees a clear shot from the line and he is cleared

A scramble and Brighton are level A Brighton shot is half blocked, but it’s up to an unmarked Veltman to propel it past Guaita

As you might expect after this first half, Dan Burn receives a yellow card for knocking down Ayew as the striker threatened to push Palace onto the pitch

Brighton picks up the pace but leaves gaps, which Mateta simply fails to exploit with a pass behind

In less than a minute Brighton closes in Burn clips into a cross Cahill blocks well Veltman hits a shot from the edge of the area Welbeck tries to turn towards the goal, but can’t reach it

Well that’s one way to treat yourself to your new fans A nutmeg first goal against the club’s tough rivals – it’s not the worst way to go about it

It wasn’t a great game at all outside of that, Brighton threatening but not really close

One more minute Brighton has a corner He’s whipped from the left, Guaita claiming under pressure from Dunk And it’s halftime

Until now Vicente Guaita didn’t have too much to do Some worries for Palace when building the game, they seem to look back a little too often on the keeper

Ayew makes two good clearing headers within minutes of Brighton’s corners He’s caught on second, and the ref calls Dan Burn and Brighton captain Lewis Dunk for a word Nothing more, however

Brighton works well in a corner and opens up space on the edge of the area, but Veltman’s strike is wide

Ayew does well with a free kick on the right win, but Eze’s cross is too deep and eludes everyone

Ayew does very well on the right to gain space to get a cross He is low and Mateta meets him at the near post, passing the ball back with Sanchez

Not much luck Brighton has a shot from inside the box, but he’s so wide off the near post that he can’t be aimed at goal

Brighton gets a cross from the left line which threatens to loop Guaita and

Milivojevic does a good job of winning the ball and Bissouma nutmeg before breaking, but it’s obvious where he’s looking to pass it, and Townsend can’t reach the ball until it’s intercepted
