GLENN MURRAY has revealed he did not watch the match which kept Albion up.

But he was delighted they rubber-stamped safety with an impressive draw at Arsenal.

Murray tucked away the penalty which secured the Seagulls’ first point away to a top-six side.

Albion were already safe thanks to Cardiff losing on Saturday.

But Murray said: “I didn’t watch it. I don’t think I can play two games in two days!

“I decided to give it a miss because I would have been trying to head and kick every ball.

“It’s funny how it worked out. We believed that Crystal Palace would do a professional job at Cardiff.

“Going into this game safe we felt we had to give a good account of ourselves. We wanted to do our best.”

Albion fell behind to an early Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty, awarded by referee Anthony Taylor against Alireza Jahanbakhsh for a foul on Nacho Monreal.

Taylor was also the ref when he let off Kyle Walker with a yellow card instead of red for rubbing his head against Jahanbakhsh in the FA Cup semi-final defeat by Manchester City at Wembley.

Albion manager Chris Hughton said: “At the time I felt it was a soft penalty. Sometimes when you see it again you change your mind. Certainly that’s not the case. I don’t think it was a penalty.

“Most people probably felt, particularly with the way we have been, that Arsenal with the quality they’ve got would go on to get a second and third so credit to our lads.”
