Luka Milivojevic’s strike from the penalty spot separated the two sides at the end of 90 minutes as the Eagles returned to winning ways

Wilfried Zaha is excited after helping Crystal Palace to a 1-0 away win over Newcastle United in Saturday’s Premier League game at St James' Park.

The victory saw the Eagles claim their seventh away win of the season to climb to the 12th spot in the log, thus bolstering their English top-flight safety.

And the winger who has scored eight goals in 29 appearances this term has taken to the social media to applaud the performance.

“Another three points on the road, God is great,” Zaha posted on Instagram.
