Palace throw away victory over Brighton in stoppage time

Palace 1-1 Brighton

Crystal Palace conceded a stoppage-time goal to draw 1-1 at home to Brighton.

Palace thought they had secured a victory over their arch rivals thanks to Wilfried Zaha’s penalty on the stroke of half-time.

Zaha slotted home after Conor Gallagher was bundled over in the box by Leandro Trossard.

Jordan Ayew then missed a golden opportunity to make the three points safe but fired wide from close range.

Brighton snatched a 95th minute equaliser when Neal Maupay got on the end of a long ball and nipped in between two defenders to lob Vicente Guaita.
