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.

After missing a penalty in a most embarrassing fashion last weekend, Jason Puncheon was on target for Palace as they beat Tony Pulis' old side Stoke City at Selhurst Park.

It was a case of New Stoke (Palace) against Stoke Classic at Selhurst Park on Saturday as Tony Pulis' new club beat his old club 1-0 on a Jason Puncheon goal in the 51st minute. The goal vaults Palace out of the relegation zone and sees them continue their strong form since Pulis assumed the reigns.

Crystal Palace had a chance to take an early lead on Tottenham when they were awarded a penalty, but Jason Puncheon's spot kick went horribly wrong, and the Eagles were eventually flattened by Spurs in a 2-0 loss.

Add to the poor result the fact that Palace are now occupying last place in the league and Eagles fans must really be feeling a Puncheon the gut today. (sorry, had to do it) Palace had Spurs playing on their back foot for virtually the entire first half but the end product was not there and Spurs eventually began to control the show. Having spot kick duties is part of the allure of Puncheon as a fantasy prospect, but with his effort today, that responsibility may change hands. Enjoy the many GIFs floating around today showing Puncheon's blunder.

Jason Puncheon converted a penalty in first half stoppage time to draw the score even which is how it ended for Crystal Palace and Norwich City on New Years Day.

Leroy Fer, who was later sent off for the Canaries, pushed Marouane Chamakh in the back in the penalty area in first half stoppage time to give Palace an important penalty. Jason Puncheon stepped up and leveled the score. Palace played the final 10 minutes of the match a man up after Fer got sent off but they couldn't manufacture a winner in the pouring rain. The draw earned Palace a point but with Fulham winning, they move back into the relegation zone on the first day of 2014.

Jason Puncheon has completed his move from Southampton to Crystal Palace on a season-long loan.

Puncheon was a solid performer for Southampton last season, but with a number of expensive additions to the squad over the summer he was unlikely to see much first team football at the Saints. The move reunites the winger with his former Blackpool manager Ian Holloway and he'll add some vital Premier League experience to the Palace squad, along with some pace, trickery and a few goals.

Jason Puncheon scored seven minutes from time to give Southampton a 4-3 win over Real Sociedad.

Puncheon finished off a solid preseason with a game winning goal and helped the Saints show they have improved from last season. He is a part time starter/ part time bench player who should see some playing time, but probably not enough to become a great fantasy option. The other Saints goalscorers were Adam Lallana, Morgan Schneiderlin, and Jos Hooiveld. Lallana, Rickie Lambert, and Victor Wanyama registered assists.
