Rafa Benitez made one change to his Newcastle side for today’s crucial encounter with Crystal Palace by bringing in Gini Wijnaldum for Ayoze Perez.

The first half was a cagey affair and Pardew’s men looked quite dangerous. However, United held out until half time, regrouped, and came out all guns blazing in the second half.

A sublime Andros Townsend free-kick and a pivotal penalty save from Karl Darlow grabbed the Magpies a massive three points in their relegation battle.
