SWANSEA, Wales (AP) — Swansea failed to win for the sixth straight game on Sunday after a dubious penalty rescued a point for Crystal Palace in a 1-1 draw in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium.

Chico Flores was sent off after bringing down substitute Palace striker Glenn Murray late on, but the offence appeared to take place just outside the box. Murray converted in front of the travelling Eagles fans in the 82nd minute.

Jonathan de Guzman had put the home side in front midway through a dominant first half.

Palace is three points above the relegation zone and two points behind 14th-placed Swansea.
