It was not easy for Brighton in the first half. First Pascal Gross missed a penalty, then the VAR disallowed a goal by Neal Maupay. After the break, Palace took the lead thanks to Conor Gallagher (69.), but in the end Joachim Andersen (87.) scored an own goal and the home team managed to pick up a point.

Brighton is now eighth, Crystal Palace is eleventh with four points less.

Arsenal ask for postponement of derby

Arsenal, the side of Red Devil Albert Sambi Lokonga, has asked the Premier League to postpone Sunday’s North London derby against Tottenham. The Gunners are missing a lot of players due to the corona virus, the Africa Cup, suspensions and injuries.

Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny, Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are currently active in the Africa Cup. Martin Odegaard is sidelined with a corona infection and also missed yesterday’s first semi-final of the League Cup against Liverpool. Emile Smith Rowe, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Cedric Soares and Bukayo Saka are struggling with injuries and Granit Xhaka has been banned after his League Cup red card. Manager Mikel Arteta has a very incomplete group.

A decision on the postponement would be made on Saturday morning. Burnley-Leicester, normally scheduled for Saturday, has already been postponed.
