Crystal Palace recorded back-to-back wins within the Premier League for the primary time since September as they saved an attack-minded Newcastle at bay at St James’ Park.

The Magpies had a handful of probabilities so as to add to the second-minute strike from Jonjo Shelvey, whereas Roy Hodgson’s facet made essentially the most of their alternatives, turning the match round in a four-minute spell courtesy of objectives from Jairo Riedewald and Gary Cahill.

Riedewald’s effort trumped Shelvey’s half-volley, when his 20-yard rocket took a slight deflection off Ciaran Clark in beating keeper Karl Darlow. After which within the twenty fifth minute 35-year-old Cahill leapt highest to flick Eberechi Eze’s nook supply previous the attain of the Magpies keeper. In doing so, the previous Chelsea defender turned the membership’s oldest scorer within the competitors.

Andros Townsend ought to have made it 3-1 in stoppage time, however nearly inexplicably struck his effort excessive and huge from 4 yards.

The visiting backline was busier of the 2 defences with Vicente Guaita producing an excellent instinctive block to disclaim Ryan Fraser and making one other save to disclaim the Scot.

Victory sees Palace transfer stage on 29 factors with twelfth place Southampton, whereas Newcastle stay in sixteenth and eight factors above the drop-zone.

Whether or not Hodgson’s facet could make it a hat-trick of successes at Leeds subsequent Monday may rely on how critical Wilfried Zaha’s damage is. The Ivory Coast winger got here off within the 58th minute with what gave the impression to be a hamstring damage.

Persistence pays off for Palace

Hodgson’s personal defence was distinctive on Tuesday. Guaita as soon as once more underlined his significance within the backline when he rushed out to get sufficient of a hand on Fraser’s strike to push it huge.

Full-back Nathaniel Clyne made a vital problem to disclaim Callum Wilson a shot on aim and Scott Dann produced a courageous block to stop substitute Allan Saint-Maximin from testing Guaita.

One other loss however Magpies on proper observe

Regardless of this eighth defeat previously 11 league video games, this was not a return to the dangerous previous methods for Steve Bruce’s facet.

They arrange with the same attacking formation which reaped rewards at Goodison Park and had Palace on the backfoot for a lot of the match, having fun with 61% of the possession.

Had Fraser caught away his probability at 2-1 when he was one-on-one with Guaita then the Magpies may need acquired one thing out of this sport.

Zaha would not usually get injured so it is regarding he has come off. Hopefully it is nothing critical.”

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce talking to BBC’s Match of the Day: “Pissed off and dissatisfied as our efficiency did not deserve for us to be beat. We had 10 minutes the place we went too deep and let in sloppy objectives. On this league that punishes you.

We’ve tried to implement change within the final month or so and what you are on the lookout for is a efficiency to go along with it. As typically within the Premier League, it is defining moments.
