It was supposed to be a celebration of Steven Gerrard's Liverpool career but Crystal Palace spoiled the Anfied party with a 1-3 win.
Well, that was not very nice. Alan Pardew has brought an effective attacking philosophy to Crystal Palace and it was on display again, despite the emotional atmosphere at Anfield, as he rang in five changes to his XI. Jason Puncheon brought the game level just before half with a wicked free kick. Then on the hour mark, newly inserted Wilfried Zaha scored from a Yannick Bolasie cross. Finally, a Lucas foul on Zaha in the area gave a penalty chance to Glenn Murray. His initial shot was saved but he quickly followed up the loose ball to end affairs. The season will end for Palace at home next week against Swansea. May 16 - 2:49 PM

Jason Puncheon, scorer of free kick goals in each of the past two weeks, has signed a four year extension that will keep him at Selhurst Park through his age 32 season.

Jason Puncheon has done extremely well under Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew at Selhurst Park but less so under Neil Warnock. After the player nearly left in January over a falling out with Warnock things have turned around entirely as he has committed his future to the club. Alan Pardew's next priority is to keep Yannick Bolasie as the powerful winger has drawn significant attention with his late-season displays.

Jason Puncheon scored a deflected free kick to draw Crystal Palace even temporarily but gave up a late Marouane Fellaini header and dropped a 2-1 decision to Manchester United on Saturday.

After streaking to safety quickly upon Alan Pardew's arrival, Crystal Palace have left supporters wondering how strong they are heading into next season. The loss to United was their fourth on the trot and sees them in danger of falling behind West Brom and former manager Tony Pulis on the season. 13th place isn't a bad result given where they were before Pardew arrived but it is disappointing given their form after his arrival.

Crystal Palace became the latest club to suffer at the hands of Chelsea, as the Eagles could not punch their way through a tough defense and lose 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Considering a win for Chelsea would crown them champions while Palace had little motivation to achieve a positive result, they still carried themselves well and played tight with the title winners. On the half hour mark, Jason Puncheon took a shot that John Terry was able to block, though questions will remain as to whether he knowingly committed handball. Regardless, Terry played like a true captain today, throwing himself in front of many a ball and protecting his keeper. Palace remain 12th in the table with a finish no higher than 11th looking likely.

Jason Puncheon's set piece goal put Palace up 2-0 and they held on to win 2-1 in Week 31 action.

City absolutely dominated possession at Selhurst Park but came away with yet another disappointing result in London. Glenn Murray scored his fifth in five matches to open the scoring. Puncheon opened the second half with a fantastic free kick to double the lead. Yaya Toure pulled one back and forced a great save from Speroni in the late going but Palace held up for all three points.

Jason Puncheon is almost certain to miss out in GW30 after the Crystal Palace midfielder suffered a hamstring injury during Saturdays’ win over Queens Park Rangers.

Alan Pardew labelled Puncheon his "most influential player" since arriving from Newcastle and although the news will be disappointing Palace can be thankful the injury is nothing more serious than heavy bruising after the player crumpled in a heap seemingly unchallenged. His absence could open the door for Dwight Gayle who dropped to the bench following the return of Glenn Murray from suspension last weekend. However Wilfried Zaha is expected to be fit after the winger collided with the goalpost having opened the scoring at Selhurst Park – despite continuing in obvious discomfort for more than 30 minutes the injury is only thought to be impact [hip] and after a few days of rest he will return to training ahead of the trip to the Britannia.

Jason Puncheon fired Crystal Palace to a 2-1 win over Tottenham in an incredible come from behind win.

Spurs took the lead through Harry Kane early in the second half but Dwight Gayle and Jason Puncheon had other plans. Gayle fired home a questionable penalty in the 69th minute and Jason Puncheon fired home a fantastic strike in the 80th minute. Wilfried Zaha was a big inspiration to Palace as he created the second goal and was overall a threat the entire time after coming off the bench. Zaha could earn a starting spot next week.

After a stretch that spans all the way back to Week 29, Crystal Palace allowed the opposition to score at Selhurst Park as they were broken down by a determined Manchester City side in a 0-2 loss

Coming into this one, Palace were as good as a defensive unit as there was in the Premier League, but today the Pulis System could not do the business against the SKy Blues, who had all the motivation to dominate after seeing Liverpool had lost earlier in the day. The Eagles attack was virtually non-existent as Jason Puncheon could not maintain his scoring form, registering just a shot on target for his efforts. Palace are still in great shape as a club under Tony Pulis, but they may be off limits as source for fantasy prospects for the remainder of the season as they will have title contenders Liverpool and relegation battlers Fulham left on their schedule.

Jason Puncheon continued his stellar run of form, scoring the opening the goal and assisting the eventual game-winner, as Crystal Palace win their fourth straight in a 2-3 upset over Everton.

Palace opened the scoring thanks to a fine run and cross from Yannick Bolasie which eventually was controlled by Marouane Chamakh, who teed up Puncheon for the tap in. Early in the second half, the Eagles would go up two on a header from Scott Dann resulting from a Bolasie corner. Everton would mount a comeback but Palace's third goal would prove to seal the points as Puncheon would find Cameron Jerome who moved the ball to his right and created the space to shoot and beat Tim Howard. Today's result was a shining example of the job Tony Pulis has done since arriving to Selhurst Park, and his name surely belongs in the conversation for manager of the season. At one time, they were floundering in the relegation zone. A few months later, they are a formidable side.

Jason Puncheon scored the lone goal in Crystal Palace's 1-0 win over Aston Villa.

The goal pretty much ensures Crystal Palace staying out of the relegation zone as they are now in 12th place with 37 points, 7 ahead of the relegation zone. Crystal Palace continued their great defensive play and Tony Pulis has turned Selhurst Park into a fortress. Palace certainly have something to look forward to next season and if they can sign a few attacking players in the summer, they can be a mid-table team next year.

Jason Puncheon scored a brace on way to a 3-0 win over Cardiff City.

Crystal Palace were excellent in this game and Puncheon and Joe Ledley took advantage in order to get on the score board. The win brings Crystal Palace to 14th place, a comfortable seven points ahead of the relegation zone. Cardiff played really poorly and deserve to be relegated more than any other team in the Premier League. They are now second to last in the Premier League and need a miracle to not get relegated.

Crystal Palace midfielder Jason Puncheon has been fined for comments made about Neil Warnock on Twitter but will not face suspension.

Puncheon made allegations about former Crystal Palace manager Warnock in response to criticism over his penalty miss at Tottenham back in January. The winger has been handed a £15,000 fine, while also receiving a warning over his future behaviour, but he has avoided suspension and will be available to face former club Southampton in Week 29.

Crystal Palace Football Club can confirm that Jason Puncheon has joined the club on a permanent deal from fellow Premier League side Southampton.

Penalty misses aside, Puncheon was having a terrific season on loan at Crystal Palace so the Eagles will delighted to have sealed a permanent transfer. At a reported fee of less than £2million he could prove a real bargain, particularly if his performances and goals help keep Tony Pullis' men in the Premier League.

Jason Puncheon scored the only goal in Crystal Palace's 1-0 win over Hull City.

After embarrassing himself with a wild penalty miss two weeks ago, Puncheon has responded with a goal in each of his next two games. He is in good form right now but is hard to trust in fantasy with the number of better options ahead of him. Crystal Palace have been improving and climb to 14th place in an attempt to separate themselves from the relegation zone. They are now tied with Hull, whose form has been dropping in recent weeks.
