Brighton 1 Burnley 1

Jeff Hendrick marked his 100th Premier League appearance in stunning style to rescue a point for the Clarets with a dramatic late equaliser.
Burnley’s impressive recent record against Brighton was only moments away from coming to an end thanks to Neil Maupay’s opener early in the second half.
But substitute Hendrick made sure the Clarets would make it eight unbeaten against the Seagulls when he crashed in an injury-time equaliser with a magnificent 25-yard strike.
It was the Clarets’ only effort on target in a game where they struggled to make any sort of sustained impact.
But once again their ability to stay in the hunt proved priceless as Hendrick came up trumps with his eighth league goal for the Clarets to complete a memorable couple of weeks for the midfielder, who won his 50th cap for Ireland at the start of the month and is now a member of the ‘100 Club’ at Turf Moor.
The Clarets were unchanged from the side that had lost to Liverpool ahead of the international break, with Dwight McNeil recovered from the tightness in his hamstring which had prevented him from linking up with England’s Under-21s for the first time.
And it was McNeil who looked the most likely source of a break-through for the Clarets in a slow burner of a first half which developed into a real scrap in the sun.
