Had Crystal Palace held on to win here, this would have gone down as a Roy Hodgson masterclass.

Brighton took 19 of the game’s 20 shots and commanded two thirds of possession but, up until the 89th minute, Wilfried Zaha’s first-half penalty constituted 100 per cent of the goals.

But finally Palace made a crucial mistake.

It was the sort of call Palace fans would understandably find correct and Brighton fans would understandably complain was a bit soft.

Substitute Alexis Mac Allister thrashed home an equaliser from the edge of the box, and although Lewis Dunk was sent off in the final throes for an appalling two-footed tackle on Gary Cahill, Brighton were well worthy of a point from a derby which will be remembered for the noise of its blood and thunder more than its aesthetics.

Neal Maupay pounced on a mis-clearance by Joel Ward and the striker’s pass bounced off Aaron Connolly’s heels and into the path of fellow substitute Mac Allister, whose half-volley took a slight deflection as it flew past Vicente Guaita.

Palace thought they’d added a second goal early in the second half when Batshuayi smashed into the roof of the net, but he was adjudge just offside chasing Riedewald’s through-ball, and so Palace retreated.
