Xherdan Shaqiri wheels away in celebration after his leveller

Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam saw his late penalty saved as Brighton clung on for a point in a dramatic finish at the Bet 365 Stadium.

Chris Hughton's side deservedly led for most of the game in which they attacked with more fluidity, typified by Jose Izquierdo's superb first-half opener after quick passing between the Colombian and Dale Stephens.

The draw is not enough to move Stoke out of the bottom three and they remain 18th with the Seagulls staying 13th in the Premier League.

Seagulls defender Lewis Dunk then reacted fastest to push the loose ball behind for a corner.
