Tony Pulis made his managerial debut for Crystal Palace, and the Eagles were able to earn a much needed victory over West Ham United by a score of 1-0, courtesy of a goal from Marouane Chamakh.
Crystal Palace managed to secure their first point after seven consecutive league defeats, but will feel they could have done better in a 0-0 draw with Everton at Goodison Park.
Crystal Palace XI - Speroni, Ward, Delaney, Gabbidon, Moxey, Jedinak, Dikgacoi, Bannan, Thomas, Guedioura, Chamakh.
Substitutes: Price, Mariappa, O'Keefe, Puncheon, Kebe, Bolasie, Gayle.
Palace striker Marouane Chamakh was booked for diving when clean through on goal as Crystal Palace lost 2-0 at Southampton.
Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Morocco international striker Marouane Chamakh on a one-year deal.
Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish has admitted he is interested in signing Marouane Chamakh and Darren Bent.
Marouane Chamakh hasn't done much of note at Arsenal or on loan at West Ham but that isn't stopping Crystal Palace from inquiring about a loan.
