Albion celebrate a goal against Crystal Palace

The highlight of Albion's season to date was the 3-1 win at home to arch rivals Crystal Palace when they played with ten men for more than an hour. The early-season 3-2 victory at home to Manchester United was also a stand-out moment and the Seagulls also recorded three successive 1-0 Premier League wins in October.

Australia's number one has again impressed between the sticks for the Seagulls. Kept three successive clean sheets as Albion won all three Premier League games 1-0 in October.
Pacy Spaniard has made 11 appearances at right-back. Expect more to come from him in the second half of the season.
The Ireland international has been excellent at the back, although will still be kicking himself for getting sent off for violent conduct against Crystal Palace. Has also been a set-piece threat and has already scored three goals.
The Brighton born-and-bred defender took a couple of games to get into his stride but has been superb since September. His form saw him win his first England cap in November. Sent off just before Christmas for two yellow cards at Bournemouth.
Had a difficult start in the opening game of the season at Watford and then had to wait until November to get back into the side. The Brazilian has got better with every game since.
Replaced Bernardo in the starting line-up after the defeat at Watford and has never let Albion down. Always a tricky defender for opposition wingers to get past. Has been on the bench in recent weeks.
Albion's captain has been in and out of the team but never lets the side down. Provided Glenn Murray with the assist in the 1-0 win over Wolves as the duo became the oldest pair to combine for a goal in the Premier League's history.
Scored a spectacular half-volley against Crystal Palace but was punished for a mistake in the defeat to Chelsea. Steady performer at the back and a more than able deputy for Albion if Duffy and Dunk are out.
There have been flashes of brilliance from the Frenchman but he can fade in and out of games. No one can question his enthusiasm and work-rate and he has provided four assists so far this season.
Has improved throughout the season. Has provided five assists and scored once so far. He should be looking to double both those totals at least in the second half of the season.
Colombian winger was Injured at the start of the season and has yet to hit the form of last season. Has missed the last few games with a knee injury.
Central midfielder keeps things ticking over in the middle of the park. Sending-off against Cardiff was frustrating for the 29-year-old and gave other players their opportunity.
Mali international is already a fans' favourite through his performances on the pitch and catchy song. Really took his opportunity when Stephens was suspended. Has tons of potential and you could see him playing at the highest level in years to come.
Impressed in the centre of midfield when Propper and Stephens were out. Has never let Albion down and got the winner at Newcastle.
The Dutch midfielder made a slow start to the season but has been excellent since returning from injury in November.
Iran international made his first Premier League start in October but got injured against Everton at the beginning of November. Albion fans are yet to see the best of the winger.
Albion's top-scorer with eight goals. Always a threat and will be looking to beat last season's total of 14 goals in all competitions.
It had been a frustrating season for the Dutch striker until he started the last two games. Scored the equaliser against Arsenal for his first goal in ten months.
After missing the start of the season through injury, the summer signing has quickly showed Albion fans his quality. Got the winner against Huddersfield and netted a stunning solo goal against Crystal Palace.
