Commentary

That's all from the Britannia Stadium. Thank you for following the LIVE action from the Barclays Premier League - hope you've enjoyed it. Until next time, have a very good evening!
Chung-Yong Lee's stunning strike proved to be the winner, as Palace picked up their 11th win on the road in 16 Premier League away games. Stoke dominated most of the second half, but were made to rue their lack of cutting edge inside the final third.
FULL TIME: STOKE CITY 1-2 CRYSTAL PALACE
There it is! Palace have the three points!
GOOD BLOCK! The ball breaks kindly for Shaqiri to hit, but Palace stand firm to make a strong block from his shot. It is looking like they will hang on here.
This would be the fourth time in the Premier League this season that Palace have won a game inside the final 10 minutes. That goal was worthy of winning any match, but the visitors need to hang on for a further three minutes.
FIVE MINUTES! That is how long Stoke have to find an equaliser in stoppage time at the end of this game.
Lee Chung-Yong
Goal
Crystal Palace
WHAT A STRIKE!!! Lee might have just won it for Palace! The ball is cleared following a corner only as far as the South Korean, who guides a side-footed effort from 20 yards into the far corner beyond the reach of Butland.
GREAT SAVE! Palace threaten on the counter once again. McArthur finds Bolasie, who races into the area but Butland is quickly out of goal to make a vital stop.
SHOULD HAVE DONE BETTER! Bojan whips a dangerous corner into the box that is met by Shawcross, who is unable to direct his header towards the target from inside the six-yard box. What a chance that was!
NOT FAR AWAY! Shaqiri stands over the ball and there is plenty of venom in his delivery that flashes towards goal, but it is just wide of the near post.
The hosts have a free kick in a good position after Delaney brings down Walters 30 yards from goal. This is a good opportunity...
Stoke have all the momentum inside these final seven minutes. They are dominating in possession and looking dangerous, but must be wary of Palace on the counter attack.
Lee Chung-Yong
W. Zaha
Crystal Palace
Pardew makes his final substitution of the game, as Zaha goes off to be replaced by Chung-Yong Lee.
J. Mutch
J. Puncheon
Crystal Palace
Another change for Palace sees a disappointing afternoon for Puncheon come to an end. Jordon Mutch comes on in his place.
STAT ATTACK! The referee has now awarded Stoke a penalty in all three matches he has officiated involving them this season.
Bojan
Penalty Goal
Stoke City
GAME ON!!! Bojan steps up and makes no mistake in dispatching of the penalty. Anybody can win this game in the final 14 minutes.
PENALTY TO STOKE! A descending high ball catches Delaney on the arm and Mr Madley points straight to the spot.
C. Adam
M. van Ginkel
Stoke City
Another change for Stoke sees Charlie Adam come on in place of Van Ginkel.
WHAT A SAVE! Palace are switching off at the back and Bojan is unchallenged as he latches onto a fizzed ball across the area. Hennessey shows great reflexes once again, however, to somehow keep out the Spaniard's effort.
The hosts make another promising break in their search for an equaliser. However, the final ball for Shaqiri is very disappointing and his frustration is evident.
Stoke are trying to find a way back into this game. Their build-up play has been very good today, but they have been lacking the necessary cutting edge inside the final third.
I. Afellay
Yellow Card
Stoke City
Afellay is the next player to have his name taken by the referee after a professional foul on Zaha, who was trying to launch a counter attack.
JUST WIDE! Arnautovic receives the ball inside the area and his shot takes a huge deflection, leaving Hennessey flat-footed, but drifts narrowly wide of the far post.
Chamakh is involved immediately as Palace look to hit Stoke on the counter attack. He tries his luck with a drilled effort, but cannot direct it inside the post.
J. Walters
G. Whelan
Stoke City
A very attacking change from Hughes sees Jonathan Walters introduced in place of Whelan.
M. Chamakh
C. Wickham
Crystal Palace
That change is made - the first of the game - as Chamakh replaces the injured Wickham.
There is a break in play here as Wickham receives attention from the physio. He is limping towards the touchline and Marouane Chamakh is getting stripped off ready to take his place if he needs to.
How did the ball not go in?! Stoke have Palace under pressure following a corner and there is a real goalmouth scramble but, somehow, the visitors are able to deal with the situation.
SHOULD DO BETTER! Bolasie opens his legs and accelerates into the penalty area, but gets excited at the vital moment and sends his shot high into the stands.
CHANCE! McArthur makes a strong run from the heart of midfield to connect with a deep cross into the Stoke area. Butland is quickly out of goal, however, to narrow the angle and force the shot wide.
The hosts are awarded a free kick 25 yards from goal, which Arnautovic stands over. He tries to time his delivery in keeping with the wind, but only succeeds in sending the ball way over the bar.
Stoke have been very much on top at the start of this second half. There is a lot more urgency in their play and Palace are struggling to get out of their own territory.
X. Shaqiri
Yellow Card
Stoke City
Shaqiri is the first player to be a shown a yellow card this afternoon, after showing dissent towards the linesman.
GOOD SAVE! Johnson plays a neat one-two with Van Ginkel before trying his luck from the edge of the area, but Hennessey gets down well to make a decent stop.
A chance opens up for Afellay early in the second half, as the ball sits up nicely for him on the volley. He cannot direct anywhere near the target, however.
STAT ATTACK! Interestingly, Palace taking the lead into the half-time means they are still yet to trail at the break in any Premier League game this season.
KICK OFF! The referee blows his whistle and Palace get the second half underway.
The teams are making their way back out onto the field and the second half is just moments away.
Stoke find themselves unlucky to be behind at the break. They just about shaded possession and had more chances, but need to create more in this second half.
Connor Wickham's penalty is the difference after what was a fairly close-fought first half. A clumsy challenge from Whelan on Zaha presented Wickham with an opportunity he took with aplomb.
HALF TIME: STOKE 0-1 PALACE
And that is the last action of this first half, as the referee blows for half time.
C. Wickham
Penalty Goal
Crystal Palace
PALACE LEAD!!! Wickham steps up having not scored in 13 games, but makes no mistake as he fires home his first goal for Palace. His last one came against Stoke for Sunderland last season.
PENALTY TO PALACE! There is a late twist at the end of this first half, as Whelan brings down Zaha in the box. Mr Madley has no choice but to point to the spot.
We are into the final minute of the first half and nothing can separate both sides as we approach the break. The two managers will encourage their sides to go for it more in the final third.
Zaha shows good footwork to skip away from Pieters and just about keeps the ball in play to cross. Stoke deal with it very well once again, though.
Bolasie once again does well to work space for himself but rather ambitiously shoots from 35 yards, and his effort is nowhere near troubling Butland.
THE WOODWORK DENIES STOKE! Pieters gets into a good position just outside the area and delivers an inviting cross that takes a deflection, but crashes against the post with Hennessey beaten.
Bolasie comes alive down the flank and gets the better of Johnson, but Stoke do well to deal with his eventual cross into the area.
STAT ATTACK! It is a case of who will strike first at the moment, but history suggests that both sides may want to pace themselves. The team scoring first has won just once in their four previous Premier League meetings.
Afellay works some space for himself on the edge of the area before shooting. There is plenty of power in his effort, but it is always rising.
Stoke are on the front foot as we pass the half-hour mark. They are looking the better of the two sides in possession and more likely to make something happen.
Similar to Van Ginkel's cross earlier, Zaha does exactly the same when Palace get themselves into a good position at the other end.
Stoke have been knocking at the door over the past few minutes. Palace have done very well to deny both of their last two efforts, but need to keep it up.
GOOD SAVE! Arnautovic cuts in from the right wing and tees the ball up for Bojan to strike. His driven effort is heading for the corner, but Hennessey shows great reflexes to push it away.
GREAT BLOCK! Shaqiri comes alive as he receives the ball near the Palace area. He shows great feet to skip away from a couple of challenges, before his shot is brilliantly blocked by a sliding Delaney.
Whelan looks to find Shaqiri in space deep inside the Palace half, but the Switzerland international tries to turn and lets the ball run out of his stride and Hennessey comes out to collect.
What a waste! Stoke put a nice passage of play together and work the ball out to Van Ginkel, who is in space on the right flank. His gets his cross all wrong, though, and sends it flying into the stands.
Things have slowed up a little over the past couple of minutes. The sting that was present over the opening 15 minutes has gone missing for the time being.
It has been a decent opening quarter of an hour, here. The only thing that is lacking is the creativity inside the final third. Both sides need to get more shots away.
A long diagonal ball forward is cleared by Souare but only as far as Shaqiri, who has a go from the edge of the area. It is not one of his better efforts, however, as he pulls it way wide of the target.
The wind is very strong inside the Britannia Stadium. It shows as Shaqiri pulls a corner back for Johnson on the edge of the box, but the ball drifts out of his stride and he can only volley wide of the target.
STAT ATTACK: Prior to today, Zaha has made the most dribbles in the Premier League so far this season with 111, including 10 or more in six different matches.
Zaha embarks on a strong run into the Stoke area and takes on Pieters before crossing. It is met by Wickham, but he cannot direct it towards the target and the hosts restart play with a goal kick.
Good pressure from Palace sees them force the first corner of the match. Ledley's delivery is well dealt with, however, and Stoke can relax again.
It has been an open start to this game from both sides. They both look confident and comfortable on the ball in these early stages.
KICK OFF! Referee Robert Madley blows his whistle and Stoke get the match underway.
HERE THEY COME! The players are making their way out onto the field and kick off is just moments away.
PALACE SUBS: Speroni, Hangeland, Kelly, Lee, Mutch, Bamford, Chamakh.
PALACE (4-2-3-1): Hennessey; Ward, Dann, Delaney (c), Souare; Ledley, McArthur; Zaha, Puncheon, Bolasie; Wickham.
Palace's 1-0 win over Southampton last weekend means that they have lost just one of their last six games. Yohan Cabaye scored the winner in that game, but is the only player from that 11 to miss out today. Joe Ledley returns to the squad to take his place, while Bakary Sako and Mile Jedinak remain sidelined through injury.
STOKE SUBS: Haugaard, Bardsley, Wilson, Adam, Joselu, Diouf, Walters.
STOKE (4-2-3-1): Butland; Johnson, Shawcross (c), Wollscheid, Pieters; Van Ginkel, Whelan; Shaqiri, Afellay, Arnautovic; Bojan.
Stoke drew 0-0 at West Ham last weekend and Mark Hughes makes just a single change from that game. Xherdan Shaqiri returns from a hamstring strain to take the place of Geoff Cameron, who also has a hamstring problem.
We can expect a close game today. Stoke have won their last three at home in all competitions, while Palace have won 10 of their last 15 league matches away from Selhurst Park.
Good afternoon and welcome to LIVE text commentary of the Barclays Premier League! We're at the Britannia Stadium as Stoke City welcome Crystal Palace.
