Glenn Murray scored twice to put Albion in control but Fulham hit back to win with goals from Calum Chambers, Aleksandar Mitrovic (two) and Luciano Vietto

Back in goal after Australia exited the Asian Cup at the quarter-final stage last week. Got down well low to his right to keep out Babel strike. Couldn't get to the ball in time to clear when Mitrovic made it 2-2.
Lovely cross was swept home by Murray for the opener early on for his first assist of the season. Tough second half.
Difficult second half as Fulham launched waves of attacks. Brilliant goal-line clearance in the first half. Booked.
Comfortable in the first half but a tricky second period. Felt he was fouled by Mitrovic when the Fulham striker made it 3-2.
Like the Albion team as a whole, good in the first half but struggled more after the break.
Played a big part in Albion's second as his cross was only half-cleared by the Fulham defence. Struggled more in the second half.
Some lovely touches in the middle of the park helped get Albion on the attack. Went agonisingly close to his first Brighton goal when he rattled the bar at 2-0 late in the first half.
Overhead kick set up Murray for Albion's second. Sent in several other dangerous deliveries in the first half. Signs he was getting back to his best at times.
Comfortable on the ball for an hour as he looked to dictate the play. Flashed shot just wide at 2-1. Booked for a high challenge on Schurrle.
A couple of nice moments but the Dutchman struggled to really get into the game. Subbed.
Superb volley from Montoya's cross gave Albion an early lead. Poked home the second from Gross's overhead kick. Twice denied a hat-trick by Rico and flicked another shot just wide.
Came on for Locadia late on.
Late introduction.
Little chance with either of Murray's goals. Smart stop in the first half to deny Murray and outstanding save in the second period.
Switched off when he kept Murray onside for Brighton's second. Brighter going forward from right-wing back in the second half.
Difficult first half for the defender. Volley blocked by Duffy at 2-1.
Had little impact before being taken off after just 27 minutes.
Headed early Seri corner wide at the near post. Much better in the second half.
Played the holding midfield role and got better and better as the match went on. Scored a lovely half-volley to get Fulham back in the match.
Early set-piece was headed just wide by Le Marchand. Side-footed against a post at 2-2. Booked.
Brighton's opening two goals both came from the left-wing back's side. Better in the second half and set up Fulham's third when Mitrovic headed home.
A figure of frustration for the Fulham fans, especially after he miscontrolled a couple of passes and then took a short corner which came to nothing. Should have scored from six yards. Subbed.
Always a handful. Twice rose highest to head home Fulham's second and third goals.
Had a fizzing low 25-yarder pushed away by Ryan in the first half. Schurrle failed to convert one of his crosses, while Mitrovic headed the equaliser from his deflected cross and set up Vietto for the fourth.
Replaced Ream on 27 minutes. Comfortable in possession and curled two shots against the bar.
Sent on for Schurrle at half-time. Lively after his introduction. Had one shot deflected just over, before he headed home the fourth.
Sent on with 15 minutes to go.
