Albion trail Premier League champions Manchester City by a Raheem Sterling goal to nil.
Sterling turned in Leroy Sane’s cross at the far post, with a simple tap-in.
The Seagulls have had few chances although Anthony Knockaert saw a rare goal-bound effort blocked just before the break.
Albion have it all to do in the second period.
