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.

Argentinian goalkeeper Julian Speroni has called on Crystal Palace to sort out his future with the club.

Speroni has been one of the key reasons for Palace's remarkable revival under Tony Pulis but his future remains unclear with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season. The Eagles signed Wayne Hennessey from Wolves in January which raised some doubts regarding the goalkeeping situation at Selhurst Park, but Speroni's performances have kept him as number one and he has made it clear he wants to stay, so the board are likely to offer the 34-year-old stopper a new contract in the near future.

Crystal Palace Julian Speroni did everything right in a 1-0 win over Chelsea.

Speroni came off his line when he had to, controlling his box and not letting Chelsea get a goal. The win is a huge one for Crystal Palace, who are now five points clear of the relegation zone. Speroni has been in great form recently and can be trusted when Palace are playing at home. He comes in at a relative affordable price most weeks and can often provide enough saves to make it worth the price. On the road, Palace are a lot more likely to concede and Speroni is a very dangerous pick.

Julian Speroni made seven saves but couldn't keep Papiss Cisse out in the final seconds and the goal saw Palace capitulate 1-0 late.

Newcastle had the better of the possession - 73% to 27% - and the chances - 7 to 1 - all day but Julian Speroni had managed to keep the Magpies out through 93 minutes. In the fourth minute of stoppage time Hatem Ben Arfa found Papiss Cisse in the box for a headed goal that provided the final margin. Crystal Palace were very good early in Tony Pulis' term as manager but they have fallen on hard times in recent weeks and are creeping closer to the relegation zone.

Crystal Palace top scorer Marouane Chamakh faces a fitness test on the hamstring he injured at Swansea.

The doubt over Chamakh makes Glenn Murray a likely starter this weekend as the Eagles host Southampton. Other concerns are Joe Ledley, Damien Delaney and Kagisho Dikgacoi. All three men missed their respective mid-week international friendlies due to injury and are slight doubts to feature this weekend.

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.

Glenn Murray scored his first ever Premier League goal in dramatic fashion, converting a spot kick late on to level the match with Swansea City and earning Crystal Palace a point on the road in a 1-1 final.

Referee Mike Dean judged that Chico Flores brought Murray down inside the box to warrant the penalty, but upon review, it appeared the foul was committed before Murray entered the area. Dean sent Flores off, and Murray was able to convert. Palace were unable to go ahead with the man advantage in the final 10 minutes, but should feel satisfied with the result considering the questionable call and the fact that Swansea dominated possession for the majority of the contest. Yannick Bolasie was heavily involved and looks an interesting prospect for the truncated schedule in week 29.

Ipswich Town are set sign Crystal Palace midfielder Jonathan Williams on a month's loan.

Williams is highly rated and has been capped by Wales, but is yet to start for the first team under Tony Pulis since returning from a bad ankle ligament injury, so a loan move until the end of the season makes sense for all parties. The 20-year old signed a contract extension in January, suggesting he is being earmarked for the future by the Eagles.

Substitute Cameron Jerome was the only one to cause Manchester United any trouble in a 2-0 loss.

Jerome caused the United defense some problems, particularly with a curling shot that was wonderfully saved by David de Gea. Palace's defense couldn't hold up as United scored two in the second half to seal the game. Palace's response was weak and Jerome was the only one that caused anything of note. Crystal Palace need to find at least a bit of attack to compliment their defense if they want to stay in the Premier League.

Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis admits he will not rush striker Glenn Murray back into the starting line-up.

Murray was Palace's star man, scoring 31 goals for the club in their promotion season before rupturing his cruciate ligament in the play-offs, forcing him out of action for nine months. The striker is finally back in full training and made his comeback as a substitute in the 3-1 Premier League win over West Brom in Week 25. Murray could still have a key part to play in the final months of the Eagles' relegation battle and he remains the club's designated penalty taker.

Tom Ince marked his Crystal Palace and Premier League debut with a goal and an assist in Palace's win against West Brom Saturday.

Tom Ince has seemingly been linked with just about every Premier League club over the last 18 months. He has finally arrived in the league and he immediately showed why he has been so talked about with a goal after fifteen minutes and an assist on fellow debutante Joe Ledley's second goal. Marouane Chamakh drew and converted a penalty for Palace's third goal to confirm the win in the second half.

Crystal Palace fought valiantly for the first half but couldn't keep Arsenal out and capitulated 2-0 at the Emirates.

Tony Pulis has been a magic man since taking over at Selhurst Park but he could extend Palace's strong run of form at the Emirates Sunday. Former Gunner Marouane Chamakh lost Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's runand Santi Cazorla found the Ox with a looping ball that Chamberlain controlled deftly and scored. Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a second to seal Palace's fate.
Feb 2 - 1:30 PM

Crystal Palace signed Wayne Hennessey from Wolves to provide competition for first choice, and ever-present, goalkeeper, Julian Speroni.

Hennessey made a nice name for himself when Wolves were in the Premier League, but hasn't been able to stop the club's slide down the FA structure. He will provide good competition to Julian Speroni, who has played every minute of every match for Palace, and has been in good form since Tony Pulis took over the club.
