    The Magpies have about three minutes to turn this around.

    There is a scuffle of sorts near the dugout and Joelinton goes into the book.

    Meanwhile, Cheikhou Kouyate is on the deck, but he looked to be struggling anyway.

    Cenk Tosun waits to come on for the Eagles, but for who?

    Two woeful crosses from Nabil Bentaleb and Sean Longstaff have summed up Newcastle's day so far.

    Meanwhile, Fabian Schar's hooked clearance sees the ball hit Jordan Ayew and knock him to the ground as if hit by one of Deontay Wilder's right-handers.

    He's back up like Tyson Fury.

    Mild excitement.

  12. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Newcastle

    Miguel Almiron races after a ball into the area. He's just about to see what's around him but then the flag goes up.

    Head bowed.

  13. Post update

  18. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle make yards like a rugby union side.

    The ball lands at the feet of Christian Benteke whose curling shot is straight into the midriff of Martin Dubravka.

  19. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Newcastle

    Jordan Ayew gets nothing in the area after falling down under a challenge from Danny Rose.

    He complains then can't get up.

    Play is stopped, he hobbles off then comes back on the pitch.


    Crystal Palace 1-0 Newcastle

    Van Aanholt's ball from the left finds its way past a cluster of Newcastle defenders to Jordan Ayew, whose low sweeping shot comes off the foot of the post.

    The visitors look more shaky than a smoothie in a blender.

    Moments later Gary Cahill heads wide from a free-kick hoofed to the back post.
