Glenn Murray gave Brighton the lead on 19 minutes but Palace levelled through Luka Milivojevic's penalty early in the second half. Anthony Knockaert got Albion's winner with a stunning strike after 73 minutes. Here's how we rated the players of both teams.

Saved deflected Batshuayi shot early on and pushed away Tomkins' header in the first half. Sent the wrong way from the penalty spot as Miliovjevic equalised. Booked.
Booked for dragging Zaha back midway through the first half. Defended well against Palace's talisman for much of the match.
Sent off in Albion's 3-1 win against Palace in December. Penalty appeals waved away when he went down under Dann challenge. Solid at the back and superb header to clear the danger in injury-time.
Long clearance forward led to Murray putting Brighton ahead after Tomkins' mistake. Outstanding blocks denied Zaha and Batshuayi an equaliser in the first half.
Defended well against Townsend and Wan-Bissaka in the first half. Last-ditch tackle denied Zaha a shooting opportunity. Booked.
Kept things simple in the middle of the park and spread the play well with a couple of lovely long-range passes.
Always in the right place to help out team-mates. Gave away penalty for a trip on Townsend, although the Palace winger went down easily.
Got stuck in early on and received a warning from referee Craig Pawson. Full of running throughout.
Booked for a foul on Miliojevic inside a minute and perhaps fortunate not to see red. Bundles of enthusiasm and scored with a stunning strike into the far top corner. Subbed.
Late replacement for the injured Florin Andone in the starting line-up. Stunning finish to give Albion the lead with a shot across Guaita on 19 minutes. Booked.
Hard-working performance down the left. Long-range shot saved by Guaita early in the second half.
Sent on for Knockaert after 75 minutes.
Sent on in injury-time.
Replaced Wayne Hennessey in goal but had no chance with either goal.
Bright run down the right early on. Plenty of energy getting forward.
Failed to deal with long Dunk ball forward which led to Murray putting Brighton ahead. Header pushed clear by Ryan at the other end.
Maybe lucky not to give away a penalty when he took Duffy down from a corner. Booked.
Not the full-back's best performance. Allowed Knockaert to cut in and restore Albion's lead in the second half.
Back in the starting 11. Shot deflected behind for a corner in the first half after cutting in. Brought down by Propper for Palace's penalty. Subbed.
In the wars early on after challenges by Knockaert and Bissouma. Set-pieces led to a couple of half-chances. Equalised from the penalty spot.
Returned to the starting line-up. Shot deflected wide for a corner late in the first half was his best involvement. Subbed.
Good covering back to stop early Albion break. Volleyed half-chance wide. Lively breaking forward.
Cut in from the left and fire over from 25 yards on 17 minutes. Denied by Dunk block from close range. Marshalled well by Albion's defenders.
Deflected shot comfortably saved by Ryan early on and another effort blocked. A handful but Dunk and Duffy handled his threat well.
Got the final 13 minutes.
Sent on after 77 minutes.
