Zaha fired the Eagles to claim a point when he slammed the ball past Mat Ryan and into the Seagulls' netting.
But before the offensive push which ultimately led to the Ivorian's goal, Palace faced a convincing opponent who did well to push the Eagles back.
Around the 75-minute mark, however, Roy Hodgson's men launched an energised attack on Graham Potter's and their efforts had paid dividends by full-time.
