Winger Wilfried Zaha scored in the seventh minute of added time to salvage a 2-2 draw for Crystal Palace against West Ham United at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

England goalkeeper Joe Hart was beaten by Zaha's low shot into the bottom corner after making several fine saves that had seemed enough to give Hammers victory.

Striker Javier Hernandez fired the visitors ahead after half an hour from Aaron Cresswell's cross and Andre Ayew put them two up before half-time with a shot from outside the box into the top corner.

West Ham, who had lost their previous league match 3-0 at home to Brighton & Hove Albion, were put under intense pressure in the second half and Palace pulled a goal back with Luka Milivojevic's penalty in the 50th minute, before Hart saved Yohan Cabaye's free kick and an earlier effort by Zaha.

Palace, whose only win in the league came against Chelsea two weeks ago, remain firmly rooted to the bottom of the table with four points from 10 matches, while West Ham are in 16th place on nine.
