Andersen’s belated own-goal gift The seagulls deserve a point in a dramatic derby

CRYSTAL PALACE must be sick of seeing Neal Maupay.

The Frenchman earned Brighton a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park in September with the last start of the game.

And he was also on a late show here to deny Patrick Vieira’s side as his cut was unfortunately sent home by Joachim Andersen with three minutes left.

Palace think they made a smash-and-grab at Albion in their second season running when Conor Gallagher blew up the house at 69 minutes.

That was after Pascal Gross missed a penalty and Maupay had the goal disqualified.

However, the three most recent clashes between the two sides have all had late drama and this is no different than Graham Potter’s men fighting back.

The uninitiated may be confused by the level of hostility between the two clubs, given the nearly 50-mile A23 distance between them.

Rivalry flared up in the 1976-77 season when Brighton’s Alan Mullery and Terry Venables’ Palace faced off for promotion to the then Third Division.

There have been plenty of uncomfortable moments since and in the last three encounters, the game-changing goals in the 90th minute.

Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, who started the trend with a stoppage-time scorer at Selhurst Park in October 2020, warned fans ‘not to leave early’ ahead of his clash .

The away fans made their presence feel like the game started by dropping a smoke bomb, just as they did against Millwall in the FA Cup on Saturday.

The match didn’t achieve a lively atmosphere – until mayhem ensued in the 36th minute.

Out of nowhere, VAR alerted referee Robert Jones to check his monitor for Will Hughes fouling Joel Veltman in the area and he got it right.

Palace fans quickly sent a red flare into goal as Gross waited to take his penalty and the trick seemed to have worked when the man’s effort was weak. Germany was saved.

However, from a remarkable corner, Brighton had the ball in the net when Jack Butland headed home Dan Burn, allowing Maupay to drop down and go home.

However, once again VAR asked Jones to check the monitor on his side of the pitch, where the Premier League rookie discovered Maupay had fouled the keeper.

There seemed to be a problem if Butland was actually in control of the ball when Maupay pushed it out of his hand.

The save was considered atonement for Butland after the howl of the England goalkeeper at The Den last weekend.

Albion continued to pressurize in the second half as Jakub Moder brilliantly headed home his first Premier League goal as he shot over the bar.

Pole was rejected again a few minutes later after being sent over by Mac Allister, but this time through a great Butland stop.

He will tackle those misses because with just 21 minutes left, Gallagher broke the deadlock in clinical fashion.

Jeff Schlupp did a great job keeping the ball alive and cutting it back to the Chelsea man, who had a quick touch and sent it into the far corner.

Gallagher jumped onto a billboard to celebrate wildly in front of Palace fans, one of whom ran across the field as another flare was lit.

There was still a pain in the back, though, as that often happens in these games, as Andersen somehow knocked Butland from Maupay’s cut to secure a thrilling draw.

Judgment by Mark Halsey

REFERER Robert Jones was right to award Brighton a penalty and also not allow Neal Maupay to score in the first half.

VAR official, Stuart Attwell, suggested looking at exactly when Will Hughes pulled Joel Veltman down in the box.

Players are always at risk when they put their arms around the opponent’s neck.

My only concern is that we are seeing similar instances of going unpunished and we need to see consistency in stopping fouls in the box.

Jack Butland was holding the ball with both hands when Neal Muapay hit the ball out of his reach and over the line, so hitting the ball away was correct.

Under Rule 12 of fouls and misconduct, a goalkeeper cannot be challenged by an opponent when the ball is considered to be in control, i.e. when the ball is between his hand(s) and any surface. which side.

But Jones had a great view of the case and should have brought it up without VAR assistance.
