Breaking News ! Hello, and welcome to football.london's live coverage of Roy Hodgson's press conference following the Premier League clash between Crystal Palace and Brighton at Selhurst Park. Hodgson made four changes to the side which lost 4-0 at Chelsea, with Gary Cahill returning to the starting line up in central defence. In midfield, Jairo Riedewald came in for the injured James McCarthy and Jeffrey Schlupp returned with Eberechi Eze dropping to the bench. And in attack there was no place for Jordan Ayew in the squad, with Michy Batshuayi making his first Premier League start for Palace since sealing a loan move from Chelsea. Palace took the lead in the first half from the penalty spot, as Wilfried Zaha converted following a foul on Batshuayi. In the second half, Batshuayi saw a great goal ruled out for offside, before Brighton earned a late equaliser through Alexis Mac Allister - though there was still time for Lewis Dunk to pick up a red card for a bad tackle on Cahill.
