The hosts took the lead on the hour mark through Gaetan Bong's own-goal before Cenk Tosun smashed in a shot off the bar in the 76th minute, the striker's second goal in as many games.

With his side trailing 2-0 in the 88th minute, Ryan dived well to his right to prevent further damage from Rooney's well-hit spotkick.

It did little to diminish Allardyce's view of Rooney's overall contribution, with the 63-year-old singing his praises.

Things could have been worse for Brighton after Anthony Knockaert's dismissal but Wayne Rooney's penalty was excellently saved, and it proved to be the only positive on an afternoon that Hughton told his club's official site he was ready to forget immediately.

Chris Hughton has lamented his Brighton team for not spotting the "warning signs" during the first half of their eventual 2-0 defeat to Everton.

"It's just a shame Wayne didn't finish off what would have been an outstanding performance".

Hughton says Brighton were not at the level expected if they are to stay in the Premier League, and insists the best side won. I thought he was our prompter.

"He's settled down. It was: 'Why did you buy him?"

Trading Michael Bennett makes pass rush an even bigger need for Seahawks
He only missed two games a year ago and made a sixth Pro Bowl appearance, but he's found himself in trade rumors, as well. The defensive end had 8.5 sacks last season, and would have given the Patriots a boost at pass rusher.

FT. Clean sheet + two goals = three points.

"If he focuses on his game and concentrates on what he is good at, the players are realising that if we put quality balls in for him into the box then he has got the knack of getting on the end of them".

"I was surprised, particularly with the form we've been in".

"At half-time, having not played well, we were still very much in the game".

"There was an opportunity for us to come out better and improve in the second half and unfortunately we didn't".

"We restricted them to minimal chances going into halftime".

The result lifted Everton up to ninth, while Brighton - who sit 11th - still have some work to do to pull away from relegation trouble.
