  • GOAL!!! WHAT A FINISH BY MATETA!!! Ayew bursts past Burn on the right and drives a low cross towards the near post, where Mateta has White for company. The striker produces a wonderful piece of skill, however, spinning White and backheeling a shot through Sanchez's legs with just one touch! That's his first goal for the Eagles! Palace have hardly had a chance, but they lead 1-0!

  • Burn feels he's won the ball after sliding in on Ayew, but the referee takes a different view of the challenge and books the Brighton defender instead.

  • GOAL!! BRIGHTON ARE LEVEL!! Gross plays the ball into the box for Welbeck, but Mitchell is there to hold the substitute off. He loses his footing as he tries to turn away with the ball, however, and it breaks to Veltman on the right side of the box, who smashes a left-footed effort past Guaita at the near post! It's 1-1 now!

  • Hodgson makes a change up front, replacing his side's goalscorer, Mateta, with Benteke. In truth, Mateta has hardly touched the ball aside from his goal.

  • GOAL!!! BENTEKE HAS SURELY WON IT FOR PALACE!!! Despite being on the back foot for almost the entire game, Palace have snatched a victory! Townsend races down the left and crosses to the back post for Benteke, who catches his volley sweetly and arrows it low into the bottom-left corner past Sanchez! It's 2-1 to Palace now!
