Neal Maupay scores against SouthamptonNeal Maupay's goal against Southampton was his sixth of the season

Neal Maupay rescued another dramatic draw for Brighton with a 98th-minute equaliser against Southampton despite being a man down through injury.

Three days after scoring an 89th-minute overhead kick to salvage a point against West Ham, the Frenchman twisted in the box to turn home the equaliser after being found by Jakub Moder's volleyed cross after his initial free-kick was blocked.

Remarkably, on both occasions Brighton found themselves down to 10 men because of injury.

This time it was Leandro Trossard who left the field on a stretcher after landing awkwardly on his arm, with the visitors unable to make any more substitutions.

Ten minutes of injury time was added as a result and it gave the Seagulls a lifeline after Armando Broja's brilliantly-taken first-half goal appeared to be enough to earn Saints their fourth win of the Premier League season.
