Graham Potter's team played pretty well for large spells but lacked a cutting edge in the final third.
Albion could be in the market for a striker in the upcoming January transfer window and contracts are starting to expire for some high-profile and highly-talented front runners.
These players will be free agents in the summer and from January 1, they can sign a pre-contract agreements with overseas clubs. It's also a final opportunity for English clubs to receive a transfer fee for those players in the final year of their contracts.
It's an unpredictable time and it means a few bargains are there to be found. Scroll down and click through to see who Albion could target this January.
1. Eddie Nketiah, Arsenal
A striker Brighton have been linked with in the past. The 22-year-old has struggled for game time at Arsenal and will seek assurances before agreeing to any new contract. Valued at just under 11m on Transfermarkt and January could be a crucial time for the England under-21.
2. Andriy Yarmolenko, West Ham
The 32-year-old Ukrainian has made eight Premier and two Europa League appearances this season. Valued at around £3m and Hammers could be open to offers as they look to generate money for a new striker
3. Juan Mata, Manchester United
The experienced Spaniard has been a classy performer for Chelsea and United in the Premier League. Unlikely to be offered a new deal at Old Trafford but the 33-year-old is valued at £3.6m and still has much to offer.
4. Jordan Ayew, Crystal Palace
The 30-year-old is an under-rated performer at Palace but always does well for the team. Decision time for Palace and if he doesn't get offered a new deal, a number for clubs will be keen for the £7.2m rated forward.
