Crystal Palace 1-1 Brighton & Hove Albion: Neal Mauapy scores dramatic equaliser

Neal Maupay’s equaliser was almost the last kick of the game

Neal Maupay scored a dramatic equaliser deep into injury time as Brighton grabbed a point against old rivals Crystal Palace.

Palace thought they had secured three points but keeper Vicente Guaita passed the ball straight to Joel Veltman on the halfway line.

Veltman hit a long ball into the path of Maupay, who lobbed Guaita from the edge of the box.

Wilfried Zaha had looked set to be the hero when he scored a penalty – his eighth goal against Albion – at the end of the first half after Leandro Trossard barged over Conor Gallagher.

Maupay’s equaliser was not enough to send Brighton top of the table at the end of a day for the first time in their 120-year history, which a win would have done.

Palace are a team whose style of play has been transformed under Patrick Vieira this season and will be hugely frustrated by the finale, having missed chances to seal the win.
