    Milo Thompson: I'm going to have a heart attack... 

    Khael Malik: Did Karl Darlow just keep Newcastle in the Premier League?

    Chris Watkins: Cabaye having a penalty saved at St James at a time THAT crucial.. can't write that. Could be a monumental moment in the season.

  13. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Steve Stone

    Former Newcastle coach and England midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

    Yohan Cabaye looks dejected

    "It wasn't a penalty in the first place, it was very harsh. It was a very comfortable height for Karl Darlow and Cabaye did not put any real pace on it either."

  14. MISSED PENALTY

    Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Yohan Cabaye has his penalty saved

    Cabaye steps up and fires the ball to his right, but keeper Karl Darlow guesses correctly and pushes the ball away.

    What a great save, but, in all fairness, it was a poor effort by the ex-Magpies.

  15. PENALTY FOR PALACE

    Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Moussa Sissoko is judged to have handled in the area as the corner is played in by Yohan Cabaye - what drama!

    It was not clear from the replay whether the Frenchman did handle. 

    The former Magpie Cabaye will take the spot-kick.

  16. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Andros Townsend had a 'Maradona '86' moment. Out on the right he skipped past one... and that's where it fell apart.

    But remember... he got the goal.

    Corner for Palace now.

  17. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Steve Stone

    Former Newcastle coach and England midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Rafa Benitez must have had a word at half-time, they needed more energy. They were giving Crystal Palace far too much respect, they needed to get in their faces. It is not like they are playing one of the top sides in the division."

  18. YELLOW CARD

    Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Jack Colback goes into the book for pulling back former Newcastle target Jason Puncheon.

    We have 24 minutes and a bit remaining. Plenty of time for Palace to get one or two.

  19. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

    That's 1000-1 for the Premier League title!

    Those odds were dug out by my colleague Matt Davis. Remember where you read it first.

    (They're 1000/1 Peter)
