Crystal Palace just can't seem to catch a break, even with a spectacular comeback, after suffering a 5-4 loss to Swansea City.
Palace went ahead early after Wilfried Zaha got on the end of a header from Christian Benteke and slotted it past Lukasz Fabianski in the 19th minute. But the Swans returned with three unanswered goals in the next 35 minutes to take a 3-1 lead; then the fun began. James Tomkins pounced on a loose ball in the box following a corner in the 75th minute to cut the lead in half. A bizarre own goal from Jack Cork sent the Eagles level, before Benteke seemed to grab the three points just two minutes later in the 84th after hitting both posts with a shot following another scramble off a corner for the 4-3 lead. But the Palace losing streak extended to six straight Premier League games after Swansea stole two stoppage-time goals courtesy of Fernando Llorente for the 5-4 result. Nov 26 - 12:25 PM
