Brighton escaped with a point after Crystal Palace’s Defender Scored an Own-Goal on the 87th-Minute.
It’s a point apiece for these two sides in the end then, and despite leaving it so late,
Brighton can consider themselves unfortunate not to be taking all three here.
Palace offered practically nothing going forward for the entirety of the match but took a shock lead with Gallagher’s well-taken finish.
Potter’s side looked like they would rue Gross’ missed a penalty in the first half, and leave with nothing, before Andersen, deflected Maupay’s cross into his net with only a few minutes remaining.
BRIGHTON (4-4-2): Robert Sanchez; Joel Veltman, Adam Webster, Dan Burn, Marc Cucurella; Alexis Mac Allister, Pascal Gross, Jakub Moder, Adam Lallana; Neal Maupay, Leandro Trossard.
SUBS: Danny Welbeck, Tariq Lamptey, Solly March, Moises Caicedo, Evan Ferguson, Marc Leonard, Steven Alzate, Kjell Scherpen, Haydon Roberts.
CRYSTAL PALACE (4-3-3): Jack Butland; Joel Ward, Marc Guehi, Joachim Andersen, Tyrick Mitchell; Conor Gallagher, Will Hughes, Jeffrey Schlupp; Eberechi Eze, Odsonne Edouard, Michael Olise.
SUBS: Jairo Riedewald, Martin Kelly, Jesuran Rak-Sakyi, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Vicente Guaita, Nathaniel Clyne, Nathan Ferguson, Luka Milivojevic, Christian Benteke.
It’s completely against the run of play! Ward surges forward on a rare foray into the Brighton half and crosses it into Schlupp at the near post. He turns and lays it off to Gallagher who slams the bouncing ball into the net from close range. 0-1
Maupay skips clear of his man wide on the left of the penalty area, and drills a low cross that deflects off Andersen inside the six-yard box and past Butland into the goal. 1-1
Crystal Palace’s Goalkeeper Jack Butland said:
“I left Stoke and had been struggling confidence-wise. Coming to Palace is a breath of fresh air.”
“The chances have been few and far between and to have a night like this is rewarding and reminds me what I am capable of.”
“There are still things to work on but it has been a long time, when you don’t play as regularly as you like it is harder. This is a reminder. I feel like I have been ready for this.”
So, What’s next for Brighton and Crystal Palace?
It’s a quick turn-around for Brighton then, who face Chelsea on Tuesday. Palace, on the other hand, faces Liverpool at the weekend.
