  1. Eagles soaring

    Crystal Palace 2-0 West Brom

    David Pleat

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live

    "It was an emphatic victory, that was clear cut right from the final whistle.

    "They shower their intent to attack throughout the game, we need West Brom would crack and Bolaise scored and then Cabaye's penalty was the icing on the cake. 

    "As Alan Pardew claps the crowd they will be happy tonight. the Eagles are the up."

  3. 'Palace deserve success'

    Crystal Palace v West Brom

    Graeme Le Saux

    Former England defender on Final Score

    "It's been a feature of Palace's season. They're so creative and have so much pace in wide areas. 

    "Having that direct option of players that can run at opponents means you are always going to be in the games. 

    "Zaha has responded magnificently to being dropped. Alan Pardew must be delighted and they thoroughly deserve the success they've had at this stage of the season."

  4. FULL-TIME

    Crystal Palace 2-0 West Brom

    A much-deserved win for Palace, who were made to work by a stubborn West Brom but whose superiority and attacking intent shone through in the end.

    West Brom's unbeaten run away from home this season is over and they can have no complaints.

    Palace move up to third for now. Take a bow, Mr Pardew.

  5. Post update

    Crystal Palace 2-0 West Brom

    Callum McManaman looks to claim what would surely only be a consolation as he cuts inside from the left and shoots towards goal, but Wayne Hennessey blocks. It is the most the Palace keeper has had to do all day. And it is much too little, way too late for the Baggies.

  6. Palace have been the superior team

    Crystal Palace 2-0 West Brom

    David Pleat

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live

    "It is no more than Palace deserve, it is no surprise that the wingers Zaha and Bolaise have induced the penalty.

    "It is ironic that Zaha might have been sent-off not long ago but at the same time he has been elusive. If he had picked the right selection at times they would have scored more.

    "Palace have been more superior in all departments, West Brom have sat too deep and have not supported their attacking players."

  7. Post update

    Crystal Palace 2-0 West Brom

    Every Palace pass is now greeted with a cheer from the home crowd. It has been a battle, but they are finally able to relax and enjoy themselves.

  8. SUBSTITUTION - Joe Ledley for Wilfried Zaha

    Crystal Palace 2-0 West Brom

    Zaha's work here is done as he is replaced by fellow midfielder Ledley.

  9. GOAL - Crystal Palace 2-0 West Brom

    Yohan Cabaye

    Yohan Cabaye scores a penalty

    Yohan Cabaye makes no mistake, putting his shot right of centre as Boaz Myhill dives the other way. Game over.

    It is the second successive game that Zaha has won a penalty, dispatched by Cabaye. It is also the sixth penalty Palace have been awarded this season.

  10. PENALTY - Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    That has been coming. Wilfried Zaha has terrorised Chris Brunt. He beats him down the right and is felled by a loose, diving lunge. Penalty. No doubt.

  11. YELLOW CARD - Claudio Yacob and Wilfried Zaha

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    What a waste. It is swung to the near post and hammered away with ease.

    Following the clearance, there is a flare-up on the touchline between Claudio Yacob and Wilfried zaha that sees the former booked for a bad tackle and the latter yellow carded for his reactive shove.

  12. Post update

  13. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    Wilfried Zaha is found near the byline by Jason Puncheon but his low cross towards Yannick Bolasie is cleared by a defender.

    Soon after, Pape Souare comes close to scoring a fortuitous goal with an attempted cross that dips just over the bar.

    West Brom are the ones in need of a goal, but Palace look more likely to score again.

  14. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    David Pleat

    Former Tottenham manager BBC Radio 5 live

    "Crystal Palace will want the second goal to feel more comfortable, it has been a  better performance than last week at Watford. If it stays like this then two 1-0 victories on the trot would be a fine weekend for the manager, players and supporters."

    Crystal palace have a chance to break but Fraizer Campbell is on his own and faced with three West Brom defenders. The striker checks, lays off to Pape Souare and then  charges into the box to try and get on the end of a cross that is a yard ahead of him.

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    There is more energy in the West Brom players now as they chase the ball, but the fact they are using the added zip to chase as opposed to apply pressure to Palace tells you all you need to know.

    The home side are not home and dry but they are in control. Fraizer Campbell goes down in the box under a challenge, but the crowd's appeal for a penalty is more animated than the players'. Craig Dawson's arms were up, but Campbell made a meal of it.

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    West Brom had gone 391 minutes without conceding away from home in the Premier League. You can see why, as they have been very stubborn. But they now have to switch to something more offensive and it is not easy to move up the gears so quickly when you've been coasting in second. It doesn't help that Saido Berahino is off the pitch and Salomon Rondon has been about as effective as a big stick stuck in the ground.

  22. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    As it stands, Crystal Palace are up third in the Premier League table. Not bad at all.

  23. Palace deserve the lead

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    David Pleat

    Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live

    "We new it was coming, it was a lovely flighted ball in by Cabaye to the far post, the goalkeeper could not get across and Bolaise flew through the air almost vertical to head into the net.

    "It is no more than Palace deserve, they are the team that have attacked, they wanted to win and now we will see if there is any reaction from West Brom, having taken their main striker Berahino off at half-time."

    Crystal Palace celebrate their goal
  24. SUBSTITUTION - Callum McManaman for James Morrison

    Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    The Baggies change is immediate as the more attack-minded McManaman replaces Morrison.

  25. GOAL - Crystal Palace 1-0 West Brom

    Yannick Bolasie

    Yannick Bolasie scores

    The deadlock is finally broken! All thoughts of that possible penalty are forgotten as Yohan Cabaye's inch-perfect cross from the left is headed home by the unmarked Yannick Bolasie. It is his first goal at Selhurst Park since Jan 1st 2013 (1005 days ago).

    It is a deserved lead for Palace. West Brom are going to have to alter their uber-defensive mindset now.

    I have just seen a replay of that alleged handball against Gardner in the box. Maybe Palace had a better claim than I first thought. The midfielder's arm is out and he does appear to block with it. West Brom can consider themselves lucky.

  28. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    Palace are racking up the corners. Their seventh is swung to the near post but header clear by Dawson. The home side come again but Puncheon's chipped cross into the box is headed away.

  29. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    Yohan Cabaye strikes the free-kick into the wall and immediately appeals for a penalty for a handball against Craig Gardner in the box. The referee waves away the shouts in his direction and justifiably.

  30. YELLOW CARD

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    James Chester is booked after making a mess of clearing with Dwight Gayle applying pressure. The striker gets goal side to claim a bouncing ball and is dragged back. It yields a dangerous free-kick on the edge of the box.

  31. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    Saido Berahino heads clear

    West Brom surely can't dig in, in their own half, for the entirety of this second half? Saying that, it has worked for them so far this season. They are unbeaten away, albeit having only scored twice, remember. It is not pretty but it is effective.

  32. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    Palace's plan is a simple one. Give it to Wilfried Zaha. The winger's cross from the right is almost perfect for Dwight Gayle at the near post, but a defender gets in there first to put the ball behind for a corner, which comes to nothing.

    Soon after, the ball is again fed to Zaha, who beats Chris runt and finds Jason Puncheon on the edge of the box for a shot that rises over the bar.

  33. WBA need to improve

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    David Pleat

    Former Tottenham manager BBC Radio 5 live

    James Morrison

    "West Brom need to do better in possession, play with a better tempo and pass the ball better or Palace will dominate the second-half."

  34. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    Jason Puncheon looks to inject some life into the game with a shot from outside the box. He doesn't catch it properly, plus it cannons into a West Brom defender, and a brief hint of excitement evaporates.

  35. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    It didn't take long for the renewed half-time hope of the home fans to be flattened. A couple of fouls, an injury and some slow-paced play from West Brom has taken the edge out of this. At the moment, this game is circling the ring road, going nowhere.

  36. Zaha final ball lets him down

    Yohan Cabaye is down and in pain after turning his ankle attempting a tackle in the middle of the park. Nothing serious, though. A bit of treatment, a ginger retreat to the touchline and he is back in play.

  39. KICK-OFF

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    The away side get the game back under way and then launch an attack that sees a cross swung over the head of Salomon Rondon and out of play.

  40. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom have made a change at half-time. And it does little to suggest that attack is on their mind. Midfielder Craig Gardner is on for striker Saido Berahino. Hmm.

  47. HALF-TIME

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    A frustrating half for Palace, who have been the better side and had a number of chances, but either fluffed them or found Boaz Myhill in good form between the sticks. West Brom have barely been Palace's half. I'm not sure they can survive another 45 minutes like that.

  48. Post update

    Wilfried Zaha reacts

    Wilfried Zaha is a frustrated man. He has the beating of Chris Brunt every time, except when the Baggies man fouls him, which he has just done courtesy of a clear shove. The referee gives nothing, though. 

  50. Palace on the attack

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    David Pleat

    Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live

    "All the attack is coming from Palace, they have had at least seven goal efforts, but West Brom are resisting superbly.

  51. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    Darren Fletcher is down in the box. Tony Pulis' arms are up. They both think it should be a penalty for West Brom for a foul by Brede Hangeland. Jonathan Moss doesn't. In fact, he has a chat with Morrison, no doubt reminding him who is in charge.

  52. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    We are into the final five minuets of this half. A half that has seen plenty of promise from Palace but no end product.

    Wilfried Zaha has another chance but again does everything right until the finish. He beats Chris Brunt again down the right before cutting inside and firing on goal, but Boaz Myhill's diving save denies him.

  55. GREAT SAVE!

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    Wilfried Zaha has looks as likely as anyone to opening the scoring. He cuts in from the right, into the box, and beats Chris Brunt before firing towards the near post. Boaz Myhill is alert, though, and palms the ball behind. It brings Palace a corner, but in keeping with the half so far, they make nothing of it.

    Soon after, Jason Puncheon fires a rising drive wide and high after turning his marker on the edge of the box.

  56. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    The final ball is not quite there for Palace. They have been the more positive side and found themselves in some good positions in and around the box but haven't yet been able to capitalise.

    Dwight Gayle looks to pull a fast one on referee Jonathan Moss by falling way too easily in the box under a legal challenge from James Chester. Moss isn't fooled.

  57. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    Oh, that is a better hit from Yohan Cabaye, who takes the ball down off his chest and strikes a swerving, dipping effort that Boaz Myhill has to palm down before gathering. That's more like it.

    A good spell of Palace pressure sees a couple of crosses swung in and desperately headed clear before Yohan Cabaye strikes a tame shot wide.

    West Brom try to replicate a free-kick move from the training ground as Saido Berahino moves towards the ball on the right and feigns for Chris Brunt to try and hit it, but Palace are quick to converge on him and prevent the shot hitting the target, also leaving the Baggies midfielder on the turf.

    He is down with good reason as well, with blood streaming from a busted nose. He'll need to go off to clean that up. Palace are systematically taking the Northern Ireland squad apart!

  61. SUBSTITUTION - James Chester for Jonny Evans

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    This is a blow for West Brom. Summer-signing Jonny Evans is forced to leave the game with an injury. James Chester - another new recruit - replaces him, going to right-back, with Craig Dawson moving to the centre.

    The latter may well welcome this to take him away from Yannick Bolasie.

  62. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 West Brom

    The West Brom players aren't happy. They feel they should have a free-kick on the edge of the box after the marauding James Morrison is felled by what looks to be a foul from Brede Hangeland.

    "Two shots from Bolasie and one shot from Zaha from Palace, both at Myhill, while West Brom have only had one shot from McClean. All poor efforts so far.

    Craig Dawson is having a bit of a mare. He gives the ball away to Jason Puncheon with a wayward pass but, fortunately for the Baggies defender, the Palace man is unable to fashion anything with possession.

    Alan Pardew

    "His performances as a manager have been top drawer, he made a very difficult job at Newcastle go well.

    "Nobody at Crystal Palace should be under any illusions about the thanks they owe Tony Pulis. 

    "From rock bottom to mid-table, in the twinkling of an eye the Welshman ensured that the foundations of success were laid. 

    "What Alan Pardew has achieved in an equally short space of time is perhaps even more impressive. Palace have every right to think that they can qualify for Europe with what must be their finest team in more than two decades."

    This is, of course, a return to Selhurst Park for Tony Pulis, was named Premier League boss of the year in 2013-14 after guiding Palace out of the relegation zone and up to 11th.

    However, he left the club the following season after growing frustrated at the club's inability to land key summer signings.

    Coincidentally, this is Pardew's 26th league game as manager of Palace - matching the number of games Pulis had in charge of the club. Palace have won 14 games and scored 36 goals under Pardew, compared to 11 wins and 26 goals during Pulis' tenure.

  87. Doing it the Pard way

    Alan Pardew

    You can see why Tony Pulis is a supporter of Pardew's credentials. He was already a Palace hero before he rocked back up at Selhurst Park last January and took them from the relegation zone to a record top-flight points tally and a 10th-placed finish.

    He has done little to harm his standing with four wins from seven matches this season, including victory over Chelsea (although most teams seem to be managing that at the moment). 

  88. Pardew for England?

    Alan Pardew

    Try this one on for size... Alan Pardew: England manager.

    Chances are you'll fall into two very different camps in your response to such a suggestion; firm agreement or utter revulsion.

    This is Pardew's way - he is a Marmite manager, earning backers with his ability but also creating haters through his perceived personality. 

    It would be safe to say that West Brom boss Tony Pulis, the man who has proposed Pardew's elevation to the national job, is one of the former.
