Crystal Palace's Emirates strike force combined for three goals as they came back from 2-1 down to beat third place Southampton in the FA Cup.

First it was former Arsenal forward Marouane Chamakh drawing Crystal Palace even at 1-1. Southampton regained the lead via a Scott Danny own goal for a 2-1 lead after 16 minutes. Five minutes later it was Arsenal loanee Yaya Sanogo who scored to equalize at two. Incredibly, Chamakh ended the scoring in the 39th minute with his second of the game. A great result for Alan Pardew as his winning streak continued since his appointment as Palace manager, it was his second 3-2 comeback win on the road in as many weekends.

Crawley Town have re-signed Crystal Palace goalkeeper Lewis Price on loan until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old Wales international had a spell with the League One strugglers earlier this season, making four appearances for the West Sussex club. Price has won 11 international caps for Wales, with the most recent of those coming in October 2012. The former Ipswich and Derby stopper has featured 16 times for the Eagles since moving to Selhurst Park in 2010.

Defender Alex Wynter has joined Colchester United from Crystal Palace on a permanent deal.

Wynter spent the early part of this season on loan at Portsmouth, but after that loan spell was cut short, he has now joined the U's in League One. Wynter, 21, had progressed through the Eagles' academy and went on to make his first-team debut in January 2010 in an FA Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday, but made just one more appearance for the Eagles which came in last season's League Cup loss to Bristol City.

Championship side Rotherham United have signed Crystal Palace defender Zeki Fryers on a month-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old joined the Eagles from Tottenham on 1 September but has made just two appearances for the Premier League strugglers. Fryers started his career with Manchester United before joining Standard Liege in the summer of 2013 and moving on to Spurs a year later.

Crystal Palace fought back from 2-0 down against Burnley to win 3-2 in a thrilling match at Turf Moor.

Crystal Palace maintained Alan Pardew's 100% start as manager in the most unlikely circumstances at Turf Moor. The match looked over after just 16 minutes as Ben Mee headed in his first goal for Burnley from Kieran Trippier's corner, before Danny Ings made it 2-0 after Scott Arfield's pass. However, Dwight Gayle made it 2-1 from Wilfried Zaha's cross before Jason Puncheon levelled from 25 yards at the start of the second half. It turned in an end to end battle and it was Gayle who completed the comeback when he controlled Puncheon's deep cross and fired the ball under Tom Heaton. The Eagles move up 12th while Burnley remain one place above the relegation zone.

Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur left Selhurst Park on Saturday in a protective boot fearing he may have fractured his foot during a hard fought victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

The tough tackling Scot revealed the injury occurred with around 20 minutes remaining but McArthur wanted to carry on to help secure three points for the Eagles’ in Alan Pardews’ first Premier League game in charge – a win which catapulted Palace out of the relegation zone. Further tests will confirm the extent of the problem but if broken the player could be sidelined for between 4-6 weeks, a huge blow considering Mile Jedinak and Yannick Bolasie are also unavailable because of their international commitments. However there was some good news on Sunday when the player himself took to social media to provide an update - his foot had settled / improved a little which could be an indication that the injury is not as bad as originally feared.

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.

Alan Pardew avoided an FA Cup upset in his first game as Crystal Palace boss as the Premier League side beat non-league Dover to reach the fourth round.

This was a professional performance from Crystal Palace in a potential banana-skin of a match-up in Alan Pardew's first game. Dover, 86 places below Palace in the league ladder, went into it on the back of a 16-game unbeaten run but could not compete with the Eagles, failing to register a single shot on target. Defender Scott Dann scored a first-half double, volleying in the opener before heading in a second. A Dwight Gayle strike and Kevin Doyle's close-range goal secured Palace a first win since November.

Crystal Palace has been able to call upon the services of defender Damien Delaney for the FA Cup trip to Dover Athletic but James McArthur misses out with an unspecified injury.

Delaney and McArthur both picked up knocks during the draw at Villa Park on New Years’ Day and the latter has been unable to shake off the problem which forced his withdrawal deep into injury time. The extent of the injury is not yet known although initial reports suggest the problem is not too serious which should see the midfielder return against Tottenham in game week 21. Todays’ third round cup tie represents Alan Pardews’ first game in charge having finalised his contractual details / compensation package with Newcastle on Saturday and the former Toon boss has named a pretty strong line-up for this potential banana skin although Mile Jedinak is unavailable [Asia Cup] and Marouane Chamakh [hamstring] remains out.

Mile Jedinak is off to join Australia in a pre-training camp ahead of the Asia Cup.

Jedinak is one of the best fantasy midfielders in the game and managers will surely have a tough time replacing him. His length of absence depends on how far Australia make it into the Cup, but he is set to miss at least a few games. You can drop him in the Yahoo! game until he returns, but he is certainly worth holding on in season-long fantasy games.

Fraizer Campbell picked up a knock on Boxing Day and is at risk to missing the week 19 match at QPR.

Campbell's injury isn't expected to be very serious but with only 48 hours to recover from Boxing Day, it's unlikely he is passed fit for Sunday. With Crystal Palace's manager getting sacked, Campbell is to be avoided for at least this week. Depending on the new manager and his injury/circumstance, he could become an option in later weeks. Don't drop him just yet in season-long formats. Marouane Chamakh is also injured and Palace will have to rely on Dwight Gayle to lead the line.

Crystal Palace Football Club can today confirm that Neil Warnock has been relieved of his duties and is no longer first-team manager.

And so we have out first Premier League managerial casualty of the season. Warnock joined Crystal Palace for a second time in August 2014, following the departure of Tony Pulis, but won just three of his 16 Premier League games in his second spell in charge, giving a win percentage of 18.8%. The 3-1 home defeat to Southampton put the Eagles in to the relegation zone and forced the club to act before things got any worse. Assistant manager Keith Millen will be in charge for the trip to Queens Park Rangers on Sunday but it is understood that Palace will begin their search for a permanent successor immediately. Tim Sherwood is one of the early favourites to take the role, with Pulis himself also mentioned, although the latter seems extremely unlikely.

James McArthur scored a goal but it looked to be wrongly deemed offside and that summed up a forgettable day for Crystal Palace as they were run over by Manchester City at the Etihad, 3-0.

Palace took a safe approach hoping City would not have their usual attack flowing minus a true striker in their XI and for the first 45 minutes, the plan was working. Though City had the lion's share of possession and took 8 first half shots to just one for the Eagles, Palace's shot was the only one that was on target. City began to click as the second half picked up and Palace found themselves down 2-0 in quick fashion. McArthur looked to have given them a fighting chance in the 68th minute though, when he scored from a Yannick Bolasie cross. The goal should have stood but it was adjudged offside. A bitter pill to swallow as the outcome may have been different, but in all likelihood, City were going to get three points from this regardless.

Neil Warnock will need to wait a little longer to discover the full extent of the hamstring injury suffered by Marouane Chamakh during Saturdays’ home draw with Stoke City.

The Moroccan striker limped off because a thigh problem with only fifteen minutes remaining and although a scan proved inconclusive Warnock has ruled Chamakh out of this weekends’ match. Tests highlighted an issue with the muscle although it is unclear whether the mark was from an existing tear or a new one – the player will have another scan when the injury has had a chance to "calm down." The Eagles face a difficult trip to the Etihad in the early kick-off on Saturday and manager Neil Warnock will need to decide whether Fraizer Campbell or Dwight Gayle – who has disappointed of late – will lead the line.

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has urged Dwight Gayle to prove his worth after the striker slipped down the pecking order at Selhurst Park.

24-year-old Gayle has struggled to hold down a starting role for Palace, despite netting six goals in his brief appearances this season. Warnock admits the former Peterborough player has failed to impress in training and was ‘disappointed’ with his contribution as a late substitute in Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Stoke. The Eagles boss has reiterated his plans to dip in to the transfer in market in January for a proven goal-scorer, and reports suggest his club are interested in Swansea duo Bafetimbi Gomis and Michu.
