Match ends!

FT That is the end and Leeds, who showed very little in the way of attack, will be most satisfied with a point. The Whites move four points clear of the relegation zone and look OK for a third Premier League season.

Palace will rue the missed chances. Mateta had two early in the first half and Olise was excellent when he came on. The Londoners are now four matches without a win, but look fine to stay up.

That is all from me for now. This is John Lupo saying I hope you enjoyed the action. Take care!

Zaha shot deflected

90'+2 Zaha cuts inside and his shot is deflected towards the far corner.

It loops up and goes just wide.

22:37a month ago

Three minutes of stoppage time

90' The fourth official indicates a minimum of three extra minutes.
22:36a month ago

Meslier with an easy save

87' Benteke plays it for Olise, who lays it off for Gallagher.

He gets a good deal of power on it, but it lacks direction as it's straight at Meslier.

22:33a month ago

Crystal Palace change

84' Christian Benteke comes on for Mateta.
22:33a month ago

Meslier with fantastic saves!

81' The Leeds shot-stopper does remarkably well to keep out two Zaha shots.
22:32a month ago

Guaita saves!

80' Leeds scramble the ball up to the edge of the box untidily. 

Gelhardt then cuts inside onto his left foot and lets fly, but it's straight at Guaita

22:32a month ago

Crystal Palace change

79' Patrick Vieira throws on Jeffrey Schlupp for Eze.
22:30a month ago

Gallagher goes just over!

79' Eze sees his free-kick cleared, but it drops to Gallagher, who, despite the difficult height, volleys just over the bar.
22:28a month ago

Llorente booked

77' The Leeds defender is booked for tugging on Zaha's shirt, giving the hosts a free-kick in a dangerous position.
22:27a month ago

Ward goes just wide

76' Palace work a short corner that falls to Ward and he curls his effort into the far corner from 25 yards away just wide.
22:20a month ago

Leeds change

74' The Whites make their final change as Jesse Marsch brings on Joe Gelhardt for Rodrigo.
22:18a month ago

Gallagher effort blocked

72' Olise is the engine of the Palace squad now and he again plays in Gallagher. He takes a while to sort his feet out which results in his shot being blocked away.
22:17a month ago

Palace penalty appeal waved away

69' Olise is again involved and he plays in Gallagher down the right.

Llorente's challenge is clumsy but he just gets a touch on the ball. VAR has a check, but it's just a corner for Palace, which comes to nothing.

22:15a month ago

Olise involved early

68' Olise gets straight into the action and his cross finds Zaha. He cuts inside on his right foot and tries his luck, but Meslier handles.
22:10a month ago

Crystal Palace substitution

67' Michael Olise comes on for Jordan Ayew and will play on the right wing.
22:09a month ago

Mateta goes over

66' Zaha crosses into the box and Mateta gets across his man, but the Frenchman can't keep his effort down.
22:06a month ago

Zaha wasteful in excellent position

62' A lovely turn by Zaha as he gets into the penalty area, but his cross is sub-standard and cleared with ease.
22:05a month ago

Leeds substitution

59' The Whites make their second change as Mason Greenwood comes on for Dan James.
21:58a month ago

Poor effort by Dallas

59' Good spell of possession by Leeds, which ends when Dallas tries his luck from 25 yards out, but is nowhere close. 
21:57a month ago

Zaha fires over

54' The leading scorer for the London outfit never looked likely to add his to tally after going well over the bar from the edge of the box.
21:53a month ago

James and Ward shown yellow

50' James comes flying across and catches Ward late.

A brief scuffle breaks out, and James is eventually booked for his tackle. Ward is also booked for his reaction to the challenge.

21:50a month ago

Ward with a key intervention

46' Leeds start the half well as Raphinha bursts into the box but the Palace defender does well to keep up with him and the shot is eventually blocked away.
21:49a month ago

Leeds substitution

As the second half starts, the visitors make a change as Robin Koch replaces Mateusz Klich.
21:31a month ago

Halftime

HT No goals in a thoroughly entertaining first half.

Palace have clearly had the better of the play, but Mateta failing to convert on either of his chances means we have no goals to speak of yet.

Leeds will be satisfied they have managed to hold out despite offering very little going forward.

We'll be back shortly for the second half.

21:29a month ago

One minute of extra time

45' The fourth official has indicated  there will be just one minute of stoppage time.
21:28a month ago

Andersen booked!

45' Rodrigo takes the ball away from Joachim Andersen and the Eagles' center-back is shown a yellow card.
21:27a month ago

Zaha fouls Raphinha

42' Zaha tries to get away from Raphinha, but he catches the Brazilian in the face with his hand. 

The Palace frontman protests his innocence, but his hand was raised, and Leeds are awarded a free-kick.

21:16a month ago

Leeds wasteful

40' Leeds' final ball has not been good enough so far, and Dallas is the latest culprit. Finding some space down the left, he looks up but can only put his cross out for a goal-kick.
21:11a month ago

Mateta with another go!

34' More free-kicks for the Eagles now and Eze delivers in that Mateta gets a head to, but Meslier easily saves.
21:03a month ago

Eze free-kick blocked

32' After Cooper fouls Zaha again, the hosts have a free-kick in a very dangerous position. Gallagher works his way into the box, Marc Guehi miscues his effort, before Eberechi Eze has a go, but his shot is blocked away.
20:56a month ago

Guaita saves easily

27' Cooper gets a header on target, but the Eagles goalkeeper comfortably saves.
20:54a month ago

Leeds penalty appeal

26' Harrison blasts a cross into the box and it hits McArthur in the arm. However, England concludes he couldn't get his arm out of the way and the penalty shout is waved off.
20:35a month ago

McArthur gets in the way!

22' First good bit of attacking play by Leeds as Dan James as he gets in down the right. The ball is worked back to Jack Harrison, but James McArthur gets in the way to block the shot.
20:32a month ago

Cooper lucky not to be booked

19' The ball bounces between the Leeds defender and Gallagher and the Eagles man gets there first.

It looks a clumsy challenge by Cooper, but referee Darren England decides to keep his cards in his pocket.

20:26a month ago

Mateta misses golden opportunity!

15' Palace continues to have the better of the play as Conor Gallagher plays a ball over the top to Jordan Ayew.

The cross is lovely and finds it way to Mateta, but the Frenchman puts his close-range effort wide after being under pressure from Meslier and Diego Llorente.

20:23a month ago

Meslier saves from Zaha!

11' Some neat play down the right by the hosts means the ball eventually finds Nathaniel Clyne. 

He sends in a cross that Zaha gets to first, but his header is looped straight to Meslier.

20:22a month ago

Hard foul by Leeds

8' A hard foul there by Luke Ayling as he takes out Wilfred Zaha on the left flank.
20:20a month ago

Early chance for Palace!

4' A nice long ball over the top finds Jean-Philippe Mateta, but he can't knock the ball past Ilian Meslier with any power and it is easily cleared away.
