After Tariq Lamptey was penalized for a foul on Michy Batshuayi, Wilfried Zaha (19) slotted home from the penalty spot-his seventh goal against Brighton, the most he had scored against one opponent-after Tariq Lamptey, while replays indicated there was limited touch. For a much-deserved point, the visitors were able to see the game out, but the result keeps them in 16th place. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace is going up one spot to the 12th.
The remainder of the first half was a much more balanced affair from then on, but with no goal-mouth action. Just prior to the half-hour mark, the best opportunity came and it was Brighton again who saw an effort wasted. By March, on the opposite flank, Lamptey’s right-wing cross was sent back into the area, but Neal Maupay was unable to guide his header to the goal, sending the ball wide.
