Left woefully exposed by his defence in the opening minute as Palace took the lead after the Dutchman had initially made a good stop. Produced good stops to keep Newcastle in it, most notably from Zaha, but could do little about Puncheon's classy finish.
Newcastle have no shortage of full-backs hungry to get forward this season and the Frenchman caused Mariappa all sorts of problems in the opening period. Took his defensive duties about more seriously in the second half and wasn't quite as prominent.
Back in the starting line up having served his suspension midweek, Palace didn't ever play to his strengths, refusing to knock the ball into the air and instead hitting on the counter - with Williamson failing to cope with the pace of Warnock's side.
Still looks stronger going forward than defending. Combined well with Cabella down the right and showed a cool head to poke Newcastle level in the first half. Both Palace goals came down his flank though and he'll need to work on stopping crosses.
A colossus at the back, he seemed to win everything thrown into the Newcastle area. Continued to play the ball out from the back even when the pressure was really on and couldn't really be put at fault for the Palace goals.

Making his home league debut for Pardew's side, the Dutchman struggled in an advanced role, failing to link up with Riviere in a frustrating first half. Saw out the 90 minutes but looked short of match fitness.
Constantly looking for the ball which will have delighted Pardew but what he did with it often left fans exasperated. Failed to provide the key pass despite numerous opportunities in the first half and sometimes struggled to spot the easy option.
Dubbed the 'ginger Pirlo' by Roy Hodgson midweek following his England call up, there was nothing reminiscent of the Italian icon when he blazed over in the first half when well placed. Kept possession well throughout though and ensured his side bossed the middle of the park.
Started in a deeper position alongside Colback but it was plain to see that the Frenchman pined for a more advanced role. Produced some of Newcastle's best moments with his direct running.
Held the ball up well when Newcastle could find him but failed to produce the movement that would afford him the chances as Palace continued to deal with with his presence.
Started the afternoon in a wide role but rarely got the service he required to run at Palace, instead often found himself playing a support role to the more ambitious Haidara. Came off in the second half for Aarons.
Didn't have the most comfortable of afternoons and looked uneasy when coming to collect the ball from Newcastle set pieces. Was completely undone by the introduction of Aarons and was caught out of position for both the final goals.
Authoritative on the left, stuck to his defensive duties and produced a solid display. Almost breached the Newcastle back-line with a marauding run that ended with his shot being tipped wide by Krul.
Was an injury doubt but recovered to start at St James' Park, no doubt tot he relief of his keeper. Played a huge role in dealing with Newcastle' constant threat from set pieces, putting his body on the line and winning headers all over his own box.
Part of a defence that frustrated the hosts for large parts of the afternoon. Stood firm as his box was bombarded by crosses and dealt well with the threat of Riviere.
His strength was clear as the presence of Riviere caused him few problems. Showed a good awareness and reading of the game, picking off some important passes inside his own area.
Newcastle focused a number of attacks down his wing and the full-back couldn't cope with the pace of Haidara, booked midway through the first half after a succession of fouls on the Frenchman.
Composed in the middle of the park, was quite happy to sit in front of his defence and squeeze the space for Newcastle's creative trio. Had the energy to burst forward too but never got himself in a dangerous position.
Made an instant impact as his teasing cross fell for Chamakh in the build up to the opening goal. Linked up well with team-mates throughout the afternoon, and gave Janmaat plenty of food for thought on the left flank.
Set aside differences with new boss Warnock and repaid his manager with a tenacious display. Looked dangerous on the counter and was happy to do the donkey work too, tracking back and getting stuck in. Took his goal brilliantly as he hooked his shot over his shoulder.
Won his place up top ahead of Fraizer Campbell following a magnificent display midweek in the Capital One Cup and took only 30 seconds to pick up where he left off - sweeping home the rebound from Chamakh's shot.
Forced Krul into a sprawling stop that resulted in the opening goal. Booked for a clumsy challenge on Colback as he tried to help out his team at the back.
