When Christian Benteke’s 94th minute volley hit the back of the net to leave Brighton & Hove Albion stunned, it sparked wild celebrations in living rooms across the country – here are some of the best reactions.
Former Palace favourite Yannick Bolasie – who knows something about important victories against Brighton – could hardly contain himself when Benteke’s goal went in.

Nor could ex-Eagle Darren Ambrose:
Wilfried Zaha may have been unavailable to play in the game – but he certainly lived every minute.

Immediate hero status.
