Crystal Palace 2 West Brom 0: Eagles sign off in style

  • Wilfried Zaha

Despite their recent improvement under caretaker manager Darren Moore, goals from Wilfried Zaha and Patrick van Aanholt meant they finished bottom of the table.

They may not have thought it after those seven consecutive defeats to start to the season, but Palace have eventually strolled over the finish line, soaking in the spring sunshine and waving at the crowd as they did so.

The midfielder began the move that nearly put McArthur through on goal, forced a further save from Foster, and again contributed when Zaha just missed the target from close range. Several sloppy errors epitomised the sluggish nature of the first half and both sides were happy to exchange passages of possession with scarce urgency.

Zaha broke the deadlock for Palace in the 70th minute and Patrick van Aanholt secured the three points shortly thereafter.

Greg Abbott held a ceremony for the state's fallen peace officers the week prior. "It's very troubling, we are a big state". Providing a means for individuals, businesses, and communities to express their appreciation for law enforcement officers.


Baggies keeper Ben Foster then denied Wilfried Zaha with his legs, with Grzegorz Krychowiak having West Brom's only effort of the half.

And they should have gone ahead when Zaha led a counter-attack to the edge of the area and laid a pass into the path of Andros Townsend, who slipped as he pulled the trigger and failed to even test Foster in a one-on-one.

But the 25-year-old is loving life at his boyhood club and Hodgson is adamant that he'll still be a Crystal Palace player next season. The forward was presented with a similar opportunity to the one he missed slightly prior, but this time made no mistake as he met Van Aanholt's cross from the left and volleyed under Foster. "We've been safe for two games".

Palace waltzed their way towards another hard-fought victory in the final stages of the game.
