Hughton hopes Glenn Murray can feature against Burnley

Postado Dezembro 08, 2018

A Brighton and Hove Albion fan has been arrested for throwing a missile at Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha in Tuesday's Premier League game. Leon Balogun added a second for the home side and Florin Andone a third in first half injury time.

Murray had to be replaced by Andone and, after a brilliant goal-line clearance from Bernardo kept Milivojevic out, the Romanian punished Palace on the counter-attack in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Palace have been very good in their own end this season, conceding only 17 goals, the sixth fewest in the Premier League this season.

Duffy also apologised for being sent-off. Hughton decided not to start leading scoring Glenn Murray and Alireza Jahanbakhsh against Huddersfield. The fact that two of their goals came while they were a man light and were not scored by Murray will be a huge boost for Hughton.

Zaha who has three goals this season will hope to put the unpleasant incident behind him when Palace take on West Ham United on Saturday as he hopes to help his side return to winning ways.

Palace went into the game on the back of an impressive 2-0 win against Burnley, but were brought back down to earth with a bump despite their opponents playing over 60 minutes with 10 men.

McArthur gave away a penalty during the game, which Glenn Murray converted. It was key for his first-half goal and kept Palace on their toes as the hosts sat back after the interval.

Palace head to the south coast to take on Brighton as they look to continue where they left off at the weekend.
