It looked so good for Newcastle, after Shelvey scored in just 70 seconds.

But Palace fought back to claim all three points thanks to goals from Riedewald and Cahill. 

The Eagle move up to 13th, Newcastle stay in 16th.

A fantastic block from Scott Dann! 

Saint-Maximin used his pace and power to glide past Clyne and set his sights on goal.

Here he is... 

Saint-Maximin comes on for Jeff Hendrick.

22:358 months ago


The intensity has faded this half, especially with the injury to Zaha.

One would imagine that Saint-Maximin will be on for The Magpies in the not too distant future.

21:358 months ago


17' Fraser does well to keep the ball in at the by-line, he then sends a cross into the box for Wilson - who attempts a scorpion kick - however, his effort is sent over the bar.

9' Zaha beats Lewis for pace, however, the Ivorian is held back by the left-back from advancing forward and bursting into the area. 

Referee, Darren England, says no foul!

21:258 months ago

Fraser delivers a tantalising ball into the area, but Hendrick could only divert a shot inches past the post.

Vavel's prediction

Courtesy of VAVEL UK's Jonny Bentley:

Many would have said that Brighton’s win against Tottenham was the surprise of the weekend but, for me, it was at Goodison Park. Steve Bruce had almost forgotten what victory tasted like but his team were superb against Everton. This has gone from being a quite dull looking affair to a match that could produce a number of goals! 

Prediction: 2-2

Both sides looking carry over their good form

Steve Bruce, with the assistance of Callum Wilson, put Everton to the sword last time out with Newcastle running out as 2-0 winners. The positive result relinquished a small amount of the weighty pressure off Steve Bruce's shoulders. 

As for Palace, Eberechi Eze's moment of magic helped the Eagles run out 1-0 winners over Wolves. However, Palace suffered a mini-injury crisis ahead of tonight, with it unclear how the south Londoners will lineup.
