That's all from us in this Premier League fixture. We'll see you for the next one, goodbye!
For Palace, as against Arsenal, it's a question of how they turn draws into victories. If they're capable of doing that, then they'll fly up the league. for Newcastle, Their biggest question is not only where their first win of the season is going to come from; it's also who their next manager will be, and whether that individual will be able to turn the Magpies' fortunes around, as they languish deeper and deeper in the relegation zone.
It wasn't the prettiest of games, and that's showcased by the fact that Odsonne Edouard, who looked dangerous all match, was largely ineffectual in the final third. He lost possession a whopping 22 times, and also gave away a team-high four fouls. Had Palace had slightly more control in the attacking third of the pitch, which they did somewhat through Olise and Zaha, then they might've had a greater chance of winning that game, in a more convincing manner.
Well, a controversial finish to say the least!!! Benteke's late winner wasn't to be as VAR stepped in to disallow the goal, and Palace boss Patrick Vieira will be questioning that decision for some time! Palace deserved to win on the balance of play, but Newcastle, despite still not having won a game this season, can be proud of the way that they fought back to equalise, and hung on until the very last whistle!
M. Ritchie
Yellow Card
90' + 4' Ritchie is yellow-carded by the referee as both sides fight for a winner at Selhurst Park.
90' + 4' Ritchie and Almiron link up down the left, but Ward deflects the former's ball behind for another Newcastle corner!
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Guehi is scythed down by Joelinton as both sides throw caution to the wind in search of a winner. The Newcastle forward is booked for his troubles.
90' + 1' We're into the first of five minutes on injury time, and everyone in this stadium is getting tenser by the second.
C. Benteke
Yellow Card
89' As if his winner begin disallowed wasn't bad enough, Benteke's now booked for a foul on Krafth.
88' HANG ON!!!! The referee has gone to VAR to see if any Newcastle defenders were impeded in Benteke's goal, and it's been chalked off!!!! We're back at 1-1 and the Palace players are fuming!!!
87' GOOOOALLLLL!!!!! PALACE LEAD AGAIN!!!! It's Benteke again who rises from the corner, and smashes a thumping header into the back of the net!!!!
86' Zaha creates room for himself on the right and crosses across goal. It's met by no one, but the ball eventually comes out to McArthur. He smashes at a low shot that's deflected behind for a corner!!!!
J. Mateta
C. Gallagher
86' Gallagher, who's been very impressive for Palace, is replaced by Jean-Philippe Mateta.
85' Whilst Palace continue to try and play through Newcastle, the away side aren't doing anything of the sort. It's the goalkeeper Darlow who, with 22 passes into the opposition half, has the most passes within Palace territory.
83' Schlupp looks to chip a ball for Benteke to chase, but Darlow gathers it. However, the Newcastle keeper accidentally carries the ball behind the goal-line, and so a Palace corner ensues!
82' Joelinton's first attacking involvement is to set up Almiron down the left. The Paraguayan's inviting cross is headed behind for a corner, by Andersen.
A. Saint-Maximin
80' Saint-Maximin has been a frustrated figure today, and he's replaced by Joelinton for Newcastle.
78' SAVED!!! Zaha does brilliantly to create space for himself in the box. He looks to play a one-two Benteke, but the latter instead turns and hits a shot straight into the gloves of Darlow. It's no surprise that since Zaha's introduction, the away side's defence drops a touch deeper every time he gets the ball.
76' Zaha looks to send Schlupp into the box, but Clark brings down the Palace winger. Schlupp appeals for a penalty, but the referee isn't convinced.
74' Edouard tees up Zaha, who has a chance to shoot, but the Ivorian substitute's shot edges just to the left of Darlow's goal.
J. Schlupp
L. Milivojević
73' Captain Milivojević is taken off for Palace, replaced by Jeffrey Schlupp.
72' MISSED!!!! HOW???? McArthur puts Benteke through on goal and it looks easier to miss, but the Palace striker can only find the side netting!!! What a miss, and it's those kinds of chances that will have Patrick Vieira losing sleep if Palace are to not win, or even lose, in this game.
71' Saint-Maximin harries Guehi into conceding a Palace corner, and Newcastle could have a chance for a second goal.
69' He might've been caught offside as many times as he's had shots (twice), but it's clear for all to see how crucial a component Wilson is in this Newcastle team. He's arguably as instrumental as Saint-Maximin when it comes to securing the Magpies' survival in the Premier League.
W. Zaha
M. Olise
67' Olise has been very impressive for Palace in this match, but he's replaced by their historical star man, Wilfried Zaha.
J. Willock
S. Longstaff
66' Longstaff is also withdrawn, replaced by Joe Willock.
M. Almirón
R. Fraser
66' Fraser is withdrawn for Newcastle, and Miguel Almiron comes on in his place.
E. Krafth
65' That's what Newcastle's defenders can do when they get forward at a set-piece - they cause chaos. It was Krafth who got the last touch before that amazing finish from Wilson, and it'll give the away side the confidence to hunt for a winner.
C. Wilson
65' GOOOOOOOALLLLL!!!!! WHAT A FINISH!!!!!!!! A Newcastle corner results in the ball bouncing all over the place, before Wilson acrobatically hooks it towards goal with an overhead kick that beats Guaita and levels us up at 1-1!!! What a finish from the Magpies' striker, and we're all square once again!!!
63' OFF THE BAR!!!! Benteke's in again, and meets a fantastic Olise ball with a looping header that has Darlow flailing, Luckily for the Newcastle keeper, the ball bounces off the top of the bar and behind and the Magpies survive again!
62' Gallagher wins a free-kick, and the ball into the box is inviting and forces several blocks before it's finally cleared by Clark.
61' Gallagher drives towards the box once more and squeezes a great ball into the path of Benteke. He flicks is further forward for Edouard, but the Frenchman can't latch onto the flick before it's cleared! 
J. Lascelles
Yellow Card
59' Lascelles is booked for Newcastle after pulling back Olise, and the Magpies' captain can have no complaints.
58' That was just Benteke's first shot on target, out of three in total, so far in this match, and the striker's finish was clinical enough to put his side ahead.
T. Mitchell
56' How Gallagher kept hold of the ball, under three simultaneous challenges, is beyond words, and the ball from Mitchell after that could not have been better placed for Benteke to head home!
C. Benteke
56' GOOOALLLL!!!! Palace finally take the lead!!! Gallagher does very, very well to keep hold of the ball and spreads it wide to Mitchell. His cross towards Benteke is very inviting and the big Belgian striker nods the ball past Darlow to make it 1-0 to the home side! It's been coming, but finally Palace have their goal and Selhurst Park erupts!
54' Edouard shunts Krafth to the floor for another Newcastle free-kick. It's been a good battle between those two down the left, but it's more memorable for fouls and scrappy play than any sort of quality football.
53' Newcastle break through Saint-Maximin down the left, but as he looks for options he's crowded out by Palace defenders, and the eventual ball to Ritchie sees possession lost.
51' Darlow races out to deal with a Palace attack and collides with his teammate Clark. the Ireland international receives treatment as the ball skids out for a throw-in.
50' OVER!!! First real chance of the half as Gallagher crosses towards Benteke. The forward acrobatically tries a shot on the turn that looks spectacular but is just over the top of Darlow's crossbar. Newcastle survive on this occasion, but given how Palace ended the first half, they're looking the more likely to open the scoring.
49' Longstaff brings Gallagher down twice in quick succession, but despite conceding two free-kicks on the trot, he isn't booked by the referee.
47' Newcastle win the ball as Palace look to counter, but bizarrely the referee blows for a free-kick despite the Magpies having possession and an overlap, with Krafth looking to receive the ball on the right wing.
46' We're back underway and it's Newcastle who get the game re-started!
It's almost time for the second half to start, and we're nearly ready for it at Selhurst Park!
It was Palace's ball almost exclusively in that first half, as indicated by their 78.5 per cent possession, and Newcastle's leading passers, Longstaff and the goalkeeper Darlow with just 13 each, have less than half the 62 completed by Palace's Guehi.
It's all square at the halfway mark in this match, and there hasn't been much in the way of clear-cut chances. Palace have had by far the better of the ball, and the territory, but just a slight increase in the final-third quality could see either side break the deadlock. It's a game that is, hopefully, likely to see more goalmouth action in the second half.
45' + 2' A mix-up between Ward and Guaita almost gives Wilson sight of goal, but the Palace keeper recovers and boots the ball into touch under pressure.
45' + 1' Olise once again looks to create an opportunity down the right, but again is thwarted, this time by the referee, as Gallagher's forward run saw him stray into an offside position.
45' There'll be an extra two minutes to play, as stoppage time at the end of this first half.
44' Palace retain possession moving up the pitch, but Newcastle pressure forces Mitchell into a long-range cross that Darlow is easily able to catch.
42' Edouard cuts inside to give himself shooting space, and does so, but Longstaff blocks the shot as Edouard takes it, and is then caught late by the Palace forward's trailing leg.
41' Guehi's cross-field ball to Ward is behind the full-back, who can only put it out for a throw-in. Given that Newcastle have only looked dangerous on the break, Palace really do need to cut out needless defensive mistakes like that.
39' Newcastle break forward and Wilson's throughball has Saint-Maximin tearing after it. Guehi steps in at the last minute to divert the ball behind for a Newcastle corner.
38' Milivojevic finds Olise on the run with a great diagonal ball, but the winger's cross is high and Mitchell's header back into the six-yard box is weak, and easily collected by Darlow. Play is brought back regardless, for a foul against Benteke.
36' It's been all Palace in the last few minutes or so, in no small part thanks to their captain Milivojevic. His three ball recoveries have prevented Newcaslte from keeping hold of the ball, particularly within the Palace half.
34' Milivojevic plays a great throughball for Edouard to chase, but Krafth intervenes and slices the ball away just in time, as Edouard was one-on-one with Darlow if he hadn't.
33' Olise is the key man for Palace at the moment. He does very, very well to keep possession down the right wing, but every time he gets the ball Newcastle defenders are doubling up on him. They're aware of the threat he poses.
31' McArthur squeezes a fantastic ball forward for Olise to chase. It beats all the trailing Newcastle defenders, but is just a yard or two in front of Olise who can only watch the ball go out for a goal-kick.
30' Edouard plays a great one-two with McArthur and is away down the byline, but Manquillo gets back, wins the ball, and clears the danger for Newcastle.
28' Gallagher is brought down by Krafth for a free-kick, and Olise's ball from the set-piece travels over everyone and flies behind for a goal-kick.
C. Wilson
Yellow Card
27' Wilson is booked for his part in the argument.
J. Ward
Yellow Card
26' Ward, who appeared to grab Wilson by the throat, is also given a booking.
26' It's all kicking off on the sidelines as Wilson has a tussle with Ward, and then Milivojevic as the Palace captain comes to dissolve the situation.
24' Milivojevic seems to have recovered from his earlier knock, but knows he's no match for Saint-Maximin's speed and bundles the Newcastle forward into touch as he tries to round the Palace captain. Unsurprisingly, a free-kick is given against him.
22' From the resultant corner, Darlow's punch out is met by a volley from Gallagher. Ritchie blocks it well, and is them trampled on by Gallagher as the ball comes back down. The referee blows for a Newcastle free-kick in the process.
21' OFF THE POST!!!! A great passing spell from Palace results in Olise crossing for Benteke. The cross is picture-perfect and Benteke meets it well, but his header cannons back off the left-hand post!! Mitchell's rebound is deflected behind by Krafth, and Palace are turning the screw here!!!
19' Edouard and Krafth tussle for the ball and the latter ends up on the deck, receiving a free-kick in Newcastle's favour as a result.
17' Palace have several chances on the edge of the Newcastle box as Olise and McArthur both try to find a way through, but each time they're crowded out by a black and white wall of Newcastle defenders.
16' Interim Newcastle boss Graeme Jones, in his first match in interim charge, can be encouraged with the Magpies' performance so far. They've been good in spells, but still run the risk of being cut open by Palace's midfield.
14' CHANCES!!!! There's a goalmouth scramble in the Palace box from the free-kick. Krafth tries a shot on the turn but it's blocked, and Wilson then tries another shot but it hits the side netting!
J. Andersen
Yellow Card
13' Andersen catches the head of Fraser with a very high boot and the Scotland winger is down in a heap. Andersen is given the game's first yellow card as a result.
11' Gallagher goes down in the Newcastle box, under pressure from Clark, but the referee waves away any option of a penalty before the on-loan Chelsea midfielder can even begin to protest.
10' Fraser beats two players and crosses towards Saint-Maximin, but his promising-looking header is wide to the right of Guaita, who wasn't troubled in the slightest.
8' Milivojevic is cleared to return to the field, and Selhurst Park breathes a collective sigh of relief.
6' Hayden and Milivojevic clash competing for a 50-50 ball, and the Palace captain comes off worse. He's down and receiving treatment.
5' The Magpies' danger man Saint-Maximin flies forward with pace, but Milivojevic gets back for Palace to snuff out his chance of attack.
3' Newcastle are without a win in eight Premier League matches so far this season. They’re not exactly strangers to this scenario, having not won their first eight in 2015-16, and their first ten in 2018-19.
1' CHANCE! Almost a chance straight away for Palace as Edouard races forward. He cuts the ball back to Benteke who, after a deflection, can't keep his header down and the ball flies over the bar!
1' And we're underway via the boot of Benteke as Palace get the game started!
Selhurst Park is roaring as the two teams come out, and we’re almost ready to go!
It’s another Newcastle start for Callum Wilson, who despite being in and out of the side with persistent injury troubles, has scored five goals in his last five Premier League games.
Odsonne Edouard and Christian Benteke both scored in Palace's draw with Arsenal, and will fancy their chances against a Newcastle side who, having conceded 19 goals so far this season, have the second-worst defence in the division.
NEWCASTLE UNITED SUBS: Mark Gillespie, Fabian Schar, Joelinton, Jamal Lewis, Jeff Hendrick, Jacob Murphy, Miguel Almiron, Joe Willock, Dwight Gayle.
NEWCASTLE UNITED (3-4-2-1): Karl Darlow; Emil Krafth, Jamaal Lascelles, Ciaran Clark; Javier Manquillo, Isaac Hayden, Sean Longstaff, Matt Ritchie; Allan Saint-Maximin, Ryan Fraser; Callum Wilson.
CRYSTAL PALACE SUBS: Jack Butland, James Tomkins, Cheikhou Kouyate, Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Zaha, Will Hughes, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Jeffrey Schlupp, Nathaniel Clyne.
CRYSTAL PALACE (4-2-3-1): Vicente Guaita; Joel Ward, Joachim Andersen, Marc Guehi, Tyrick Mitchell; Luka Milivojevic, James McArthur; Michael Olise, Conor Gallagher, Odsonne Edouard; Christian Benteke.
Newcastle, meanwhile, for all the talk of their vastly wealthy new owners, are still yet to win in the Premier League this season, and come into this game managerless, having finally parted company with Steve Bruce after their loss to Tottenham.
Home side Palace will feel they’ve got a point to prove, having been denied three points in their last game with Arsenal, due to a last-minute equaliser from Alexandre Lacazette in their 2-2 draw with the Gunners.
