Crystal Palace vs Brighton & Hove Albion (1-1): Live Stream, TV Updates and How to Watch Premier League 2020


The whistle blows!

FT For so long Crystal Palace thought they had this game won thanks to Wilfried Zaha's penalty but Brighton persevered and earned a point late on through Alexis Mac Allister. It was his first Premier League goal, and there was still time for Lewis Dunk to see red for a poor challenge on Gary Cahill.

A game that Brighton were clearly the better side in ends in a draw that will surely frustrate the Seagulls more than their hosts. Both teams will carry on and look for more wins in the upcoming fixtures.


This is John Lupo saying so long for now, I hope you enjoyed today's coverage and stay tuned for more reaction to this match right here at VAVEL!

Bye for now.

No penalty!

90'8 Connolly takes March's flick, but the penalty shouts are waved away.

Dunk sent off!

90'+4 A disastrous two-footed challenge by Dunk on Cahill and he is shown a straight red.

Seven minutes of extra time

90' The referee signals for SEVEN minutes of additional time.

Brighton equalize!

90' GOAL! Maupay tries to pick out Connolly, but the ball was behind him and Mac Allister is on hand to fire home. Just about what Brighton deserve. 

Brighton waste another chance

89' March delivers an inswinger towards the near post, but Guaita is fouled by Dunk.

Palace substitution

88' Schlupp is replaced by Cristian Benteke.

Palace yellow card

87' James McArthur clips Webster by his ankles and the ref shows him a yellow card.

Substitution for each team

83' Pascal Gross replaces Dan Burn while Luka Milivojevic replaces Batshusayi.

Brighton double substitution

78' Trossard and Lallana are coming off for Alexis MacAllister and Aaron Connolly.

Palace relieve the pressure

70' Lallana looks to be coming in for a shot, but the ball is scrambled away for a corner.

Brighton go wide

66' Trossard feeds Dunk, but he's nowhere near.


65' Mitchell and Lamptey square up to one another after a coming together, but cooler heads prevail and senior players come in to break it up.

Crystal Palace yellow card

62' Mitchell is booked for taking down Trossard.

Desperate defending for the hosts

55' Lallana with a wonderful through ball to Maupay, who sends his shot wide after several Palace players throw themselves in front of the Frenchman's chance.

No goal for the Eagles!

52' Batshuayi appears to have doubled Palace's lead, but he's flagged for offside.

Brighton almost level!

49' What a chance for the visitors!

March rifles a ball into the area. Lallana leaves it for him, he takes a touch, turns around Cahill before striking - but Guaita is there for the stop.

Then, McArthur goes down with an injury after pulling up and there is another short stoppage as he is seen by the medics.

Not long after, Trossard sends an effort flying wide. The Seagulls continue to press.

Coming together

47' Dunk fires an absolutely lovely ball forward, trying to pick out the run of Maupay through the middle but it swings more towards Lamptey right. 

Guaita reads it and comes out to collect, with Lamptey flying over the goalkeeper before Guaita clatters into Mitchell's legs.

Both are down in some discomfort and the medics are on, but soon they're back up and OK to carry on,.


HT So the first 45 minutes are in the books and a very even first half that saw few chances.

Most of the goal action came in the first 20 minutes or so as Brighton began well but a Wilfried Zaha penalty sees Crystal Palace ahead at the break.

One minute of extra time

Lull in action

41' Not much action right now as both defenses have tightened up.

Palace coming into the game

29' Townsend sweeps it in front of the Brighton wall, but Kouyate can't latch onto it. Much better play from the hosts, though.

More excellent play from Brighton

28' Lovely lofted cross from Lamptey as he feeds March, but his knock-back is headed over by Maupay. Brighton continue to be on top, but have nothing to show for it.

Speculative effort

26' Maupay with a curious shot that Guaita has no trouble with.

Palace in the lead!

19' Totally against the run of play, the hosts are in front through Zaha, who now has four goals on the season.

Penalty to Palace!

17' They've done almost nothing so far, but now the hosts have a chance to take the lead.

Andros Townsend whips a cross in from the right hand side, and Lamptey is marking Batshuayi inside the six yard area. However, there are no hands from the Brighton youngster on the striker, but he goes down as both stumble back and the referee points to the spot.

Brighton goalkeeper Ryan is also booked for dissent. 

Seagulls dominating

14' White is next to have a go, but drags his shot wide.

March again involved

11' March is again involved as he delivers a lovely corner, which is cleared to Bissouma on the left who again, hammers an effort goalwards but it smashes into the side of the net.

Solo effort from March

8' March with some excellent play as he goes on a mazy, solo run down the left wing before a neat exchange with Trossard sees him burst into the area. He cuts it through for Lamptey on the right, but he fires it straight into the Palace defense.

Early effort for Brighton

2' Lallana lets fly from the edge of the area, but it goes wide of the goal.

Potter wary of Crystal Palace threat

Brighton manager Graham Potter is keenly aware of what the Eagles are capable of.

"Crystal Palace have plenty of qualities that can cause teams problems but that's the same in any game in the Premier League. They can hurt you at any moment and they have good experience. Roy Hodgson has made them very organized.

"They are seasoned professionals that have had really good careers. We need to be smart and need to be brave and alert. If you drop your focus and concentration at any point in this league, whoever you play against, you can be in trouble."

Hodgson not taking Brighton lightly

Despite their defensive shortcomings, Palace manager Roy Hodgson knows how good Brighton can be.

"I actually have a very high opinion about Brighton and the job Graham Potter has done there. I think they're a very good team. I've seen them lose a couple of games in recent months where they've actually been very good and fully deserved to win but came out on the losing side."

He added: "We're preparing for a very, very good Brighton side and I don't myself identify a credible defensive weakness. We think that they are good both going forward
