A late Joachim Andersen own goal denied Crystal Palace what would have been the ultimate smash-and-grab win away at bitter rivals Brighton an Hove Albion on Friday night.
As is often case for the home side, they dominated the game in almost every way imaginable but struggled to put the ball in the back of the net.
A dramatic few minutes in the first-half saw Pascal Gross miss a penalty before Neal Maupay bundled in from a corner just seconds after, although VAR ruled that out for a foul on the excellent Jack Butland.
When Conor Gallagher smashed one in from point-blank range after 70 minutes, the home side must have feared the worst. Despite dominating, a goal proved as elusive as ever.
Still, excellent work from Maupay caused Andersen to put through his own net with minutes remaining.
This fixture never disappoints.

A look at Brighton’s goal

86:00 - Brilliant work from Maupay to create space in the box and his driven cross is deflected in by Joachim Andersen.
Speaking of late drama...

Still, this game is famous for its late drama.
Jack Rosser on Crystal Palace’s goal
For all the talk of a new Crystal Palace, this will be vintage Roy Hodgson if Palace pull this off. They’ve hardly had a look in all night and then pop up with that. Some fine work from Joel Ward early in that move.
GOAL: Brighton 0-1 Crystal Palace | Conor Gallagher ‘69
69:00 - You couldn’t write it.
Brighton dominate but some nice play from Palace has Gallagher free in the box as the ball breaks and the midfielder smashes home.
The away end erupts.
