Crystal Palace scored two goals in three minutes at the death to earn a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Watford and extend their unbeaten run to six games.

The Hornets looked to have the points in the bag as they led from the third minute when Daryl Janmaat headed home at the far post.

Tom Cleverley saw red late on for Watford for two yellow cards and then it all changed around as Bakary Sako levelled in the 89th minute with a scrappy finish and then in the second minute of time added on James McArthur forced an unlikely winner.
