Brighton 1 – 1 C Palace

Brighton left the ball late in front of Crystal Palace again as Joachim Andersen’s own goal canceled out Conor Gallagher’s goal in a dramatic 1-1 draw at Amex Stadium.

In a drama-filled first half, Graham Potter’s side were denied two opening goals in a crazy few minutes in which he missed a penalty and disallowed a goal.

Palace goalkeeper Jack Butland dismissed Pascal Gross’ weak penalty kick after judging Joel Feltman for a Will Hughes corner kick after a VAR intervention.

There was hardly any breathing time before Neil Maupay curled the ball into the net, but Brighton’s celebrations soon faded. Referee Robert Jones was called back to the stadium screen and reversed his decision again, and referee Maupay had the ball out of Butland’s hands.

Brighton quickly came out of the blocks again in the second half and were inches from the lead once again when Jacob Moder’s heel bounced over the Batland area before firing over the top of the bar as Palace escaped.

However, contrary to the course of play, Palace snatched the lead through Gallagher. The loaned Chelsea midfielder emphatically scored his seventh Premier League goal of the season at the right corner after Jeffrey Schlupp pulled the ball from the sideline.

It looked like it was going to be one of those nights for Potter, but just as they did in the reverse game at Selhurst Park earlier in the season, Brighton fired late, leveling with three minutes remaining. Mubay made his way inside the box past Joel Ward and a low cross was turned into a net by Palace defender Andersen as the hosts finally got their reward.

There was still time for one last chance for the hosts as Danny Welbeck got on the wrong side of Mark Joy to meet Sully Marsh’s cross, but flipping back, he couldn’t help but run back as Palace escaped to secure a point.

The draw sees Brighton move up to eighth, while Crystal Palace also move up the table to 11th.
