Couldn’t do anything about the opening goal and could do even less about the second. When he was truly called into action, he was solid. Made a great save with his feet to stop Cabaye scoring a second.
Failed to cover the runs of Puncheon or Jerome, leaving the other defenders stretched. Needs to time his attacks forward more carefully.
Terribly misjudged a Debuchy cross to divert into his own net to sum up a poor performance in terrible weather conditions.
Seemed to struggle with the pace of the game in the first half, with Newcastle strong in midfield. Was withdrawn at half-time.
Was found out of position on more than one occasion, allowing Sissoko to find space time and time again.
Unlucky with the opening goal but was slack for the majority of the game with his positioning a particular concern.
Fairly quiet as he battled against an efficient Newcastle defense. Was guilty of poor decision making at times when isolated from his attacking partners.
A danger at set pieces, as usual, and was a threat through the middle, but was sacrificed at halftime as Pulis looked to find a way back into the game.
His passing let him down today, with misplaced attempts really stalling Palace’s attacking flow on more than one occasion.
Will be disappointed after a frustrating display. Struggled to link up with Chamakh all game before being withdrawn 15 minutes from time.
His work-rate cannot be questioned, often seen dropping deep in search of the ball, but really struggled against Williamson and Coloccini today.
Was a tad suspect at corners, making one mistake that nearly leading to a Crystal Palace equalizer in the first half, but was otherwise solid.
Impressive in defense and attack. Managed Puncheon well and was always a threat at set pieces.
Much like Santon, was as much of a threat in attack as his was efficient in defense.
Had a quiet and controlled game with Palace struggling to assert themselves up front for the majority of the encounter.
Kept Chamakh quiet all game as he again proved why Alan Pardew has kept faith in him this season. His awareness and anticipation were particularly noteworthy.
Controlled the center of midfield alongside Tiote. Looked confident and assured for the majority.
A mixed bag for Tiote. His passing ranged from poor to adequate but was also an imposing threat in the center when creating space for his team.
Returned from suspension and broke the deadlock with a neat finish - but his real highlight was his work-rate. Seems to glide between defense and attack with ease. A superb display.
Had a lot of joy down the left flank, often turning Ward or Mariappa, but the killer pass was lacking more often than not.
Was superb on the right flank, with the opening goal all his own work. Faded slightly in the second half but was still a fine, all-round display.
Cut a frustrated figure up front, with Gouffran struggling to find him with the final ball, though was lively all game and kept a nervy-looking Palace defense consistently busy. Replaced with 20 minutes to play.
Gave away the penalty to seal the win for Newcastle in his only real contribution to the game.
Came on at half-time and injected some much-needed vigor into Palace. A very raw talent, so his decision making let him down at times but his turn of pace is thrilling.
Came on chasing a losing cause. Was energetic but failed to make an impact.
