Speroni

Three goals shipped but made a few good saves, particularly from Cabaye's swerving free-kick.

1 4.9 6

Mariappa

Overlapped well with Bolasie in the second half and Palace stronger on his side of the pitch.

1 4.6 6
5
Gabbidon

Bad decision to stretch for Debuchy's cross and struggled to contain the Magpies.

1 3.7 5
5
Delaney

A hard game but Delaney made six clearances over the 90 minutes and did well enough.

1 3.7 6
5
Moxey Off '45

Back after injury, Moxey was badly exposed on both first-half goals. Taken off at the break.

1 3.6 4

Puncheon

Few opportunities to show what he could do and little time on the ball.

2 3.6 5

Ward

Battled well in central midfield alongside Jedinak.

Jedinak

Could have done better for first goal but was one of Palace's better players on the day.

2 4.7 7

Bannan Off '45

Behind much of Palace's better first-half moments when he got on the ball, but taken off.

2 3.7 6

Chamakh

A few moments of skill but booking resulted in a one-match suspension on Boxing Day.

1 4.4 6

Jerome Off '77

Fired over from Palace's best opening on 68 minutes.

2 3.6 5

Parr On '45

Palace were better after the break, but Parr gave away penalty.

1 5.7 5

Bolasie On '45

At least offered the Eagles an attacking dimension.

1 5.2 6

Gayle On '77

Not enough time to make any sort of impact.

Krul

Had to make one smart save from Jerome in first half but rarely troubled.

1 6.8 7
5
Debuchy

Palace's left side was often punished, particularly when Debuchy crossed for Gabbidon's own goal.

1 8.2 8

Williamson

Got forward well on occasions and wasn't seriously tested defensively.

1 7.4 7

Coloccini

Booked in the second half, but enjoyed the physical battle with Jerome and Chamakh.

0 7.5 7

Santon

Useful series of crosses and was solid enough in defence.

1 7.1 7

Anita

Partnership with Tiote is blossoming. Tenacious and energetic.

2 7.5 8

Tiote

Tiote had over 120 touches of the ball in midfield and only a booking blotted his copybook.

1 7.7 8

Sissoko

Set up Cabaye's goal and caused havoc for Palace down the right-hand side.

5 7.7 8

Cabaye Off '79

Back from a ban, Cabaye was clever for the opener and adventurous all afternoon.

7 8.6 9

Gouffran

One of the Magpies's most accurate passers on the day and hit the post in the second half.

2 7.2 7

Remy Off '75

Barely in the game and no surprise when he was withdrawn.

2 6.2 6

Ben Arfa On '79

An excellent cameo and took his penalty coolly.

1 7.5 8

Ameobi On '75

Won the penalty late on when taken down in the area by Parr.
