Brighton and Hove Albion snatched a late 1-1 draw against West Ham courtesy of an acrobatic finish from Neal Maupay at the London Stadium.
A Tomas Soucek header – his sixth headed goal since his debut in February 2020 - had given David Moyes’ side the lead with just five minutes on the clock.
It looked as though the strike would be enough for the Hammers to tighten their grip on fourth place until Tariq Lamptey went marauding down the right as the clock approached 90 minutes.

West Ham hold a one-point advantage over Arsenal ahead of the Gunners’ clash with Manchester United on Thursday.
Leicester twice came from behind to hold Southampton to a 2-2 draw at St Mary’s.
Jan Bednarek was first to react to give the hosts the lead when Mohammed Salisu’s shot was saved with three minutes on the clock, but Jonny Evans levelled matters with 22 minutes gone.
Che Adams nodded home Nathan Redmond’s centre to give the hosts the advantage at the interval. It would be an elongated interval after a medical emergency in the stands delayed the start of the second half.
And it was Leicester who acclimatise better as James Maddison scored for the third game on the bounce when he produced a nice bit of skill before slotting past Alex McCarthy.
The result leaves the Saints in 16th and Brendan Rodgers’ side in eighth.
Elsewhere, Burnley remain in the bottom three after a scoreless draw with Wolves, who are in sixth.
