Premier League Round-up: Crystal Palace hold on for derby delight against Brighton and Huddersfield leave it late against Watford

Latest news

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton & Hove Albion

    Wilfried Zaha was the hero as Crystal Palace edged out Brighton in a five-goal thriller at Selhurst Park. The win moves Palace six points clear of the relegation zone, with just four games left to play.

    Zaha was the man on the spot to give the Eagles the lead after just five minutes, tapping in after Mat Ryan had saved Luka Milivojevic’s shot.

    James Toimkins doubled the lead soon after a goalmouth scramble to send the home fans into delirium.

    However, former Palace man Glenn Murray halved the deficit, hooking the ball over the line via the bar.

    Zaha got his second the game to give Roy Hodgson some breathing space in the 24th minute, before Jose Izquierdo sent a clam finish past Wayne Henessey.

    The Seagulls could not find an equaliser in the second half, and with just one more point more than Palace, are still in danger of going down.

    Burnley 2-1 Leicester City

    Chris Wood’s header kept Burnley in the shout for an unlikely Europa League spot  as the Clarets held on to beat Turf Moor.

    It was a fast start for Sean Dyche’s side, with the hosts going two up inside ten minutes.

    Wood opened the scoring against his former side, before Kevin Long doubled the lead with a header following Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s corner.

    Leicester grew into the game after the first half, wasting several chances before Jamie Vardy’s powerful finish.

    But Burnley hung on to record a fifth straight Premier League win.

    Everton 1-1 Swansea City

    Swansea continued their charge up the Premier League table after claiming a valuable point against Everton at the Liberty Stadium.

    Sam Allardyce’s men took an undeserved lead thanks to a Kyle Naughton own goal, having had two shots cleared off their own goal line.

    The Jacks kept plugging away, and eventually equalised through Jordan Ayew.

    The points moves them five points clear of the drop zone, while the Toffees stay in ninth.

    Huddersfield Town 1-0 Watford

    Tom Ince came off the bench to score a late goal to move Huddersfield seven points clear of the relegation zone.

    The Terriers recorded their first win in six games despite the well-organsied defence of Javi Gracia’s side.

    Michael Oliver recovered from his midweek madness in Madrid and had a quiet game, booking both Huddersfield’s Alex Pritchard and Watford’s Roberto Pereyra for simulation.

    The winner came as Terriers defender Mathias Jorgensen latched on to a long punt into the area and squared the ball to Ince, who fired in from five yards.
