Palace nearly took the lead after just three minutes when Luka Milivojevic's through ball found Wilfried Zaha in space but his first touch took the ball away from him as Karl Darlow gathered comfortably.

Crystal Palace and Newcastle United played to a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.

Mo Diame had given Newcastle the lead when he poked home a finish at the far post in the 23rd minute after Kenedy's low, inswinging corner went through a mass of bodies.

Palace manager Roy Hodgson thought his side's performance after half time deserved a maximum points haul.

This was after Ayoze Perez's cross from the right side had gone through a packed goalmouth.

He blocked Brazilian winger Kenedy's shot with his chest, then dived to his left to palm away Perez's effort from the rebound.

The south Londoners nearly hit back just before half-time as Yohan Cabaye carried the ball into the box on the left and flicked it back to Zaha, whose shot was parried into the path of Benteke by Darlow, but the striker couldn't react quickly enough to turn home from a couple of yards out.

With five minutes remaining the again-impressive Zaha found space in the area to shoot at goal but curled high and wide, and then crossed to Benteke when the visitors' desperate defending again prevented a winning goal.

Batshuayi nets twice on Dortmund debut
Belgium worldwide Batshuayi joined from Chelsea on transfer deadlined day to replace Aubameyang, who quit Dortmund for Arsenal. He said: "We lost an extraordinary striker and gained a player who has qualities in front of goal".

Van Aanholt created a good chance for Andros Townsend eight minutes into the second half with a risky cross from the left, but the winger directed his header well over the bar.

The goalkeeper got a hand to Milivojevic's spot kick, but he couldn't keep it out of the net.

Clark was guilty of tugging on Benteke's shirt at a cross and he was correctly penalised, allowing Milivojevic to convert from 12 yards, despite the best efforts of Darlow.

We also have the experience of Fergus McFadden who is also a pretty accomplished goal-kicker too. He previously coached Jalibert at Bordeaux-Begles.
