Crystal Palace 5-1 Newcastle

All over at Selhurst Park and Crystal Palace have trounced Newcastle. Loud boos from the Magpies fans at the final whistle.

Thanks for joining me.

GOAL - Crystal Palace 5-1 Newcastle

James McArthur (90+3 mins)

AND IT'S FIVE!

A brilliant Crystal Palace break away, led by the brilliant winger Yannick Bolasie, which is finished by James McArthur for his second of the game.

Not long left. How will Newcastle boss Steve McClaren react in the post-match interview?

CLOSE

Left-back Pape Souare with some neat footwork before blazing over the crossbar from close range for Palace.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Palace striker Patrick Bamford working hard to get the ball back, he wants to impress but where can you fit him into this team?

Unfortunately, the youngster will continue to have a bit-part role to play in this side.

Two minutes left for Newcastle to endure.

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Palace send on on-loan Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford for the excellent Connor Wickham.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Palace striker Connor Wickham deserves a goal, but it doesn't look like he will be getting one today. His shot from the edge of the area ends up in north London. That's his last action of that match.

'Incredibly poor'

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Dion Dublin

Former Aston Villa striker on Final Score

 "I don't like to see managers get sacked, but it is all about results. Watching this game Newcastle have been incredibly poor, there is no leadership.The back four are not working together and that leaves gaps. At the moment Palace can do what they want, it is only 4-1 but could have been a lot more than that."  

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

What judgement will Newcastle owner Mike Ashley make on Steve McClaren's future? Here's a man who knows something about going under a hammer...

YELLOW CARD

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba booked for a barge on Palace left-back Pape Souare.

'I have seen no evidence of desire'

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Kevin Kilbane

Former Everton winger on Final Score

"Newcastle's players have been questioned publicly this week by the manager, but I have seen no evidence of desire this afternoon."

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Steve McClaren on the touchline trying to urge his men on, but this one is gone. Is his Newcastle career over too?

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Newcastle fans chanting, "You're not fit to wear the shirt" to their players. Can't argue with that.

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Crystal Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye won't finish the match against his old side, as South Korean Lee Chung-yong is sent on by ex-Newcastle boss Alan Pardew.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Don't know whether to laugh or cry? The Newcastle fans decide to laugh, cheering every completed pass from their players.

CLOSE

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Newcastle striker Siem de Jong, just on as a substitute, nearly gets a goal, but his strike is deflected wide. Crystal Palace may want to wake up again to avoid a nervy finish to this game.

One could bring two and three for the visitors.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Palace lead Newcastle by 4 goals to 1. Not sure even an umbrella can protect Steve McClaren from the inevitable downpour of criticism.

Very good Gary.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Luuk de Jong gets his wish.

Jack Colback and Georginio Wijnaldum come off for Newcastle and Siem de Jong and Yoan Gouffran go on.

Not much point sending them on though. No sub has scored for either side this season.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Newcastle's former loanee, and brother of current Toon player Siem, has his say.

Maybe it's time to change🎶 #crynew

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Winger Wilfried Zaha's afternoon is over for Crystal Palace and he's is not too happy to be brought off. Midfielder Mile Jedinak comes on to sit in front of the back four.

GREAT SAVE

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Almost a fifth. Once again a Palace man is able to bring the ball forward unchallenged. This time it's full-back Joel Ward, who unleashes a rocket of a drive which Rob Elliot does brilliantly to tip over the crossbar.

Rob from Newcastle: Reckon Ant and Dec are free next weekend? Might get a game...

David in Bournemouth: To all those who say: "I bet you wish Pardew never left". No I don't, but that doesn't mean we're happy with McClaren.

Steve from Surbiton: Steve McCaren has to be the most overrated coach in English football history. Nice guy, but what has he ever done as a manager in this country? You have to be judged on winning games, not because you were Alex Ferguson's sidekick!

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Jason Puncheon's free-kick for Palace comes to nothing. Newcastle break at the other end and left-back Paul Dummett's cross is defended strongly by Palace skipper Damien Delaney. He - like many of his team-mates - has had an impressive game.

#NUFC have less team spirit than that Nirvana song! I vote for a completely different eleven for the next game: Try Ocean's! #BBCFootball

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Game has gone a little flat now, with the intense pace starting to catch up with the Palace players. They're happy to keep the ball and work it around the pitch. Winger Wilfried Zaha earns a free-kick close to the edge of the area after being hauled over by Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba...

CLOSE

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Another successful cross from a Crystal Palace wide man and this one was a beauty, shaped into the six-yard box from the left hand side but Yannick Bolasie can't keep his stretched effort on target.

The sad truth is that you can't build a team in one transfer window. We're paying the price for a lack of consistent investment #bbcfootball

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

When do we start getting a piece ready to say Steve McClaren has been sacked as boss of Newcastle? Could well get the chop this evening. His side have been a shambles at the back. Fabricio Coloccini is wearing the captain's armband, but he couldn't lead a dog at the moment.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Not only have the Palace wingers scored three of their four goals, but they're also putting in plenty of successful crosses.

Newcastle, in the opening 55 minutes or so, have not succeeded with a single cross.

Excellent crossing or poor Newcastle defending? Bit of both I'd say.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Palace looking menacing and showing no sign of letting up, they're looking to get more goals and almost get another through Jason Puncheon, but the winger's drive flies narrowly over the crossbar.

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

What have Newcastle got left to offer in this match? 

Winger Wilfried Zaha gets past Fabricio Coloccini like he's not even there and puts in a low ball which Connor Wickham can't get on the end of.

Come in number five?

'Bolasie was left totally free'

Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Kevin Kilbane

Former Everton winger on Final Score

"It wasn't even a great ball in from Crystal Palace, but whenever a ball is played into the Magpies' area no defender goes and challenges it for it. And Bolasie was left totally free."

Someone needs to tell the #NUFC players it's not Christmas yet! Giving away goals like presents atm! #CPFCvNUFC #bbcfootball

GOAL - Crystal Palace 4-1 Newcastle

Yannick Bolasie (47 mins)

Awful defending again.

Palace concede a free-kick around 30 yards out as Connor Wickham is brought down. Former Newcastle man Yohan Cabaye chips the ball into the area, defender Damien Delaney nods it on and the impressive Yannick Bolasie is on hand to finish at the back post.

This could get ugly for Steve McClaren's men.

KICK OFF

Crystal Palace 3-1 Newcastle

Newcastle get us back under way and striker Papiss Cisse almost gets on the ball inside the Palace area but can't quite make it count. At least it's another touch in the opposition penalty area.

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 3-1 Newcastle

Newcastle bring on defender Jamaal Laschelles for midfielder Ayozi Perez. The Magpies switch to a back three.

Crystal Palace 3-1 Newcastle

What will Newcastle boss Steve McClaren be saying to his men at the break? Defend better for starters, but he'll have been ramming that message home all week in training.

Mclaren out. Moyes in. Mclaren has already lost the players. We'll go down with him in charge. Will Ashley listen? Doubt it. #bbcfootball

#NUFC are awful. McClaren did nothing in his last 3 jobs, never mind with England. Get him out, Moyes (or anyone else) in. #bbcfootball

clearly Newcastle spent all week swearing at each other rather than preparing for Palace. Awful performance #mclarenout #bbcfootball

Crystal Palace 3-1 Newcastle

Palace getting into the box at will - Newcastle, not so much. The yellow dots signify touches on the ball and the home side (left) have had many more in the area than the away side (right) who have had just four.
