End of 2nd Half
FT
It's all over and Brighton's six-game unbeaten run comes to an abrupt end in dramatic fashion. The home side were the better team throughout, but that late suckerpunch from Benteke has earned Palace all three points. Football, bloody hell!
95'
That is ridiculous. Palace get forward right as the clock strikes 95 and Townsend’s deep cross towards the back post is brilliantly volleyed home by Benteke. They scarcely deserve it, but Palace have won this. 2-1!

GOOOAAALLL!!! WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT!!!! BENTEKE WINS IT FOR PALACE!
93'
Brighton pour forward again. Will there be late drama at the Amex…?!

Palace look to run down the clock, bringing on McCarthy, who makes a welcome return from injury.

There will be five minutes of added time.

Oof, Welbeck is tackled on the edge of the box but the loose ball falls to the feet of Jahanbakhsh. It’s a great chance for the sub, but Cahill produces a brilliant brave block to deflect the shot narrowly wide.
87'
Veltman’s pass down the line for Lallana is overhit and that sums up the last few minutes, it’s all a bit ragged from the home side.
86'
Palace are camped deep in their own half as Brighton commit more and more bodies forward. Will there be another chance? They will be kicking themselves if they don’t win this.

Veltman fells Eze as Palace look to launch a rare counter and it's a booking for the Brighton man.
83'
Brighton continue to push, but it’s all getting a bit desperate. There’s still time to carve out some decent chances, they need to keep their heads.
80'

One final change for Brighton as Jahanbakhsh comes on. They deserve to win this, but time is rapidly running out.
76'
Surely Brighton will go on to win this? Surely!?

The night is over for goalscorer Mateta, who has had very little chance to get on the ball since scoring that brilliant opener, and on comes Christian Benteke.
73'
It's still all Brighton but again Lallana shoots over from inside the box. It's remarkable that this game is still level.

Lallana shoots over under pressure from Cahill, who is back on with some cottonwool up his nose. That should have been the second for Brighton.

Palace are temporarily down to 10 as Gary Cahill leaks claret from his nostril. It won’t take long for the medics to clean that up.
68'

Brighton make another change, with Adam Lallana coming on to provide a bit of freshness to the midfield.
67'
Another string of brave blocks inside the box deny Brighton in a spot of penalty-area pinball. It feels like a second goal for the home side is moments away… but then it felt like that in the first half and we know what happened there.
