Watch: Shane Duffy smashes home backpost volley against West Ham United

Republic of Ireland defender Shane Duffy scored a superb volley in Brighton & Hove Albion's 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Wednesday.

Dale Stephens gave the Seagulls the lead just after the half-time break before Duffy extended their advantage at the Olympic Stadium with a superb volley after finding some space for himself at the back post.

However, the visitors lead was short-lived with West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic smashing home a quickfire double to bring the Hammers level and earn a point for Manuel Pellegrini's side.

The Austrian went down with a hamstring problem last month but vowed to return as quick as possible.

“Thank you so much for all your messages. I will be out for a while but will do everything to come back strong and quick”.

Arnautovic is currently being linked with a move to Chelsea as Maurizio Sarri looks to bolster his attacking options in the new year.
