That is all from this Premier League fixture, until next time!
Newcastle climb up to tenth by virtue of playing first this weekend and next will face a trip to Dean Smith's Aston Villa. For the hosts, who will wonder how they have not got any thing from this game, they sit in 13th and up next for the Eagles is a trip to West Brom.
Bruce's men defend resolutely and then hit Palace late on the counter-attack twice to come away from London 2-0 victors. In both halves Hodgson's side had the majority of chances, namely through Schlupp, Eze and Van Aanhlot, but none of them could beat Darlow. After leaving it late, Wilson opened the scoring before Joelinton doubled the lead moments later to secure the three points for the visitors.
F. Schär
90' + 3' Centre-back Schar comes on for Joelinton, who has won the game for the Magpies here.
J. Schlupp
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Wilson shoots from range but Schlupp, perhaps more out of frustration than any thing, catches the striker late and referee Scott cautions him for his tackle.
90' + 1' Joelinton has scored and assisted tonight, after a run of 16 games in the Premier League without a goal or assist.
C. Wilson
90' Wilson returns the favour to his Brazillian partner, rolling him in over the halfway line to grab a second goal in as many minutes.
90' GOALLLL!!! 2-0 NEWCASTLE! After numerous chances Joelinton finally gets his goal. The visitors hit Palace on the counter-attack before the Brazillian’s left-footed effort deflects off Cahill and sends Guaita the wrong way.
90' After 85 minutes, it was effectively Palace's attack versus Newcastle's defence. Fast forward five minutes and the Magpies are 2-0 up, with a big three points virutally secured.
88' Joelinton receives possession from a throw-in, beats two players to a loose ball before sliding in Wilson to open the scoring.
C. Wilson
88' GOALLLL!!! 1-0 NEWCASTLE! Against the run of play, Joelinton plays the easiest of passes through to Wilson, who slides a left-footed shot under Guaita from inside the area. Initially, the Brazilian had evaded two or three Palace tackles before breaking through the middle of the pitch.
87' Hendrick coasts over to a throw-in, knocking the ball well in front of him as he stutters up the pitch, which perhaps outlines Newcastle's intentions for the rest of this game.
86' No Palace player has had more shots than substitute Benteke (3). Can he find a winner for his side here?
85' GREAT CHANCE! A golden chance falls to Van Aanholt, who was initially played in by Eze. The full-back appeared in two minds as he slammed a left-footed effort across Darlow and wide of the target. Batshuayi was there at the back post for the simplest of tap-ins but Van Aanholt picked neither as his effort rolls out for a goal-kick.
84' WHAT A BLOCK! Benteke chests down a cross to Kouyate, who gets the other side of Fernandez and drills a shot which looks destined for the goal. Out of nowhere, Fernandez somehow recovers before producing a magnficent block to turn the effort away for a corner.
83' The visitors have three or four efforts at goal from outside the area but none of them beat the wall of Palace defenders protecting Guaita's net.
M. Batshuayi
J. McArthur
82' Hodgson shows his intent as he brings off midfielder McArthur for striker Batshuayi.
82' Kouyate foolishly gets too tight to Joelinton and then fouls the striker as it looks like Hodgson is set to make some more substitutes.
81' Wilson and Hendrick then lead the charge down the other end and win a corner for the visitors. Ritchie takes but Wilson's flick from the corner is weak and easy for Guaita to save.
80' SAVE! Van Aanholt is afforded too much room by Manquillo, which allows the left-back to get his head up and cross towards Benteke. The Belgian striker towers above the defenders before heading downwards towards goal, however, Darlow is once again there, diving to his right and parrying away the chance.
78' Three men stand over the Newcastle free-kick inside the D. Ritchie is the man to take but the Scot drills his left-footed effort straight into the chest of Guaita.
S. Dann
Yellow Card
77' Longstaff pokes it through the legs of Dann and looks set to be in on goal, however, the centre-back fouls the Newcastle youngster which leaves referee Scott no option but to card him.
77' Lewis clears down the left-hand side which allows Riedewald all the time in the world to get his head up and find a pass. He still somehow manages to miss Benteke and the visitors look to counter-attack.
75' Riedewald produces the perfect sliding tackle to stop Lewis on the counter-attack but his efforts are wasted as Kouyate then needlessly fouls Ritchie near the touchline.
74' McArthur squares up Fernandez before racing towards the byline, however, the centre-back recovers well to slide and clear behind for another corner to the Eagles.
73' Benteke chests down a pass before advancing into the area and drilling a left-footed effort across the face of goal, which does not trouble Darlow and instead goes out for a throw-in.
72' Joelinton is unmarked in the area and meets Ritchie's cross but manages to head well wide of Guaita's goal, despite being under no pressure whatsoever.
70' There have been just seven goals scored in the last seven Premier League meetings between Crystal Palace (3 goals) and Newcastle (4), with neither side netting more than once in a match since the Eagles’ 5-1 win in November 2015.
M. Ritchie
M. Almirón
67' Bruce makes his first change as he brings off Almiron for Ritchie.
J. Riedewald
A. Townsend
67' Riedewald also comes on in place of Townsend, in a move which will see Schlupp move out to the left-hand side.
67' CLOSE! Wilson climbs the highest to deflect Manquillo's cross towards goal but his header falls just the wrong side of Guaita's post. That was so nearly 1-0 to the visitors.
C. Benteke
J. Ayew
66' The first change of the game sees Benteke replace Ayew up top for the Eagles.
65' Townsend switches play to Van Aanholt, who looks to drill a cross across the face of goal but two Newcastle shirts deal with the danger as they clear for a throw-in.
65' The visitors have scored a league-high 80% of their Premier League goals in the second half of games this season (8/10). The Magpies have also seen a league-high 12 goals in the final 15 minutes of their games this season, scoring five and conceding seven
64' Van Aanholt slams a left-footed cross into the head of Manquillo and wins another corner for the hosts. Townsend takes and after a bit of chaos inside the area, Eze volleys well wide of the target from outside of the area.
62' Kouyate has his arms in the air as this time Schlupp is fouled near the halfway line. It appears he is asking how many times Newcastle players can get away with these little fouls before the referee intervenes.
61' Van Aanholt wastefully hits his left-footed free-kick straight into the wall before skewing a right-footed cross out for a goal-kick.
S. Longstaff
Yellow Card
60' Longstaff slides from behind on Eze as the Palace man looked to attack on the edge of the area and is rightfully booked by Scott to become the second Newcastle man in the book here.
60' Townsend intercepts and in normal circumstances would have acres to run into, however, Newcastle's defence are so deep to negate Palace's pace that the winger runs out of room as he is swarmed by three Magpies.
58' Almiron tees up Joelinton but the Brazillian cannot sort his feet and is tackled by Van Aanholt on the edge of the area. Bruce may be hoping one of Joelinton's many chances end up falling to his strike partner, Wilson.
57' Manquillo sends a hopeful, looping cross into the area which Guaita claims comfortable before pumping the ball long. The visitors then appear happy to retain possession, as they did in the first half.
56' Joelinton wins a free-kick for the visitors 25 yards from goal after being fouled by McArthur. Shelvey stalls before whipping a right-footed free-kick straight into the wall.
54' WIDE! Ayew latches onto a loose ball inside the Newcastle area before sliding and beating Manquillo to it. Unfortunately for Ayew and Palace, his right-footed prod slides just wide of Darlow's right-hand post.
52' Schlupp for the second time in as many minutes, finds space down the left before winning a corner for the hosts, which Cahill heads wide of the target.
51' A fairly sedate start to the second half as Schlupp goes racing down the left before his cross is headed away inside the area by Longstaff.
49' McArthur's touch is heavy before he fouls Joelinton near the centre circle to stop Newcastle from progressing. Perhaps the Palace midfielder is slightly lucky to escape a booking there.
47' Schlupp and Van Aanholt combine early on in the second half but the former's cross is snatched up by Darlow at the front post after a deflection off Clark.
46' Since the start of the 2018/19 season, Crystal Palace (34) and Newcastle (32) have seen more Premier League games goalless at half-time than any other teams.
46' Both sides are back out and referee Scott gets the game back underway!
Looking ahead to the next 45, the hosts could call on either Batshuayi or Benteke off the bench if they are looking to chase the game. For Bruce and his side, he will be content with their performance away from home so far and does not appear to have any real out-and-out attacking options amongst his substitutes.
It has been far from a thriller at Selhurst Park so far as the sides go in 0-0 at the break. Despite having the majority of the possession, the Magpies have rarely troubled Guaita, barring one Joelinton chance. At the other end, Hodgson's men have tested Darlow, courtesy of Eze and Schlupp but the scores remain level.
45' The fourth official indicates there will only be a minute of added time here. Manquillo is then far too enthusiastic as he clumsily fouls Eze deep inside Palace's half.
44' Schlupp gets on the end of Kouyate's looping cross from the left but heads well over Darlow's goal from inside the area.
43' CHANCE! Joelinton dispossesses Dann on the edge of the area, before unleashing a low left-footed shot towards Guaita's left, however, the Palace goalkeeper does well to react quickly, diving low to parry the shot before retrieving the rebound.
41' Lewis fakes one way then the other before cutting in on his right foot and curling a shot towards Guaita's far post, which the Spaniard saves with relative ease. Kouyate is then down off the ball but does not require medical attention.
40' Joelinton is far too casual in his attempts to beat Dann, which allows the centre-back to tackle just as Bruce's side looked set to break the Palace defence.
39' Townsend and Clyne both try to cross from the right-hand side but Newcastle are alert to the bouncing ball and step in before the likes of Eze and Ayew can pounce.
37' The visitors' first corner of the game comes to nothing. Hendrick then has two attempts at releasing Wilson but both times Palace stand firm to clear the danger.
35' Wilson does incredibly well to hold off both Cahill and Van Aanholt before sliding in Hendrick, who wins Newcastle's first corner of the game.
33' Schlupp goes down softly under the pressure of Fernandez but referee Scott sees through the Palace appeals for a foul and rightly awards a goal-kick instead.
31' Eze is starting to increasingly find space, every time he gets on the ball, he looks like he will make some thing happen. Only the same could be said about one other Palace player so far and that is Ayew.
29' SAVE! Darlow is on hand once again, this time to deny Schlupp's left-footed effort towards the near post from inside the area. Strangely, it was Wilson's strong tackle which released Schlupp before the Newcastle goalkeeper pulled off another good save.
28' Darlow has made more saves than any other Premier League keeper this season (41), while only Edouard Mendy (87.5%) has a better save percentage than Darlow (72.2%).
26' Joelinton appears to have done himself a bit of damage and the medical team rush on to tend to him. It looked like he'd pulled up after getting into a foot race with Cahill. After a brief pause, the Brazillian returns to the field.
25' GREAT SAVE! Darlow pulls off a magnificent save, diving to his left to deny Eze's curling right-footed shot from 25 yards out. Ayew had initially teed up Eze, before the forward whipped his effort towards the top right corner.
23' Joelinton plays in Almiron, who looks to return the favour towards the Brazillian but makes a mess of his pass, which allows Kouyate to intercept before attempting to launch a counter-attack.
21' Eze carves open the visitors' defence to find Clyne rushing towards the byline. Lewis does well to match the right-back's run but also concedes a corner for his defensive efforts.
20' Joelinton stings Guaita's hands after being found by Shelvey. In fairness, the striker's right-footed effort did have some force behind it, but was also straight at the Spaniard from 20 yards out.
19' A tale of two stars? Palace without Zaha have lost 14 of their last 16 games, while the Magpies without Saint-Maximin have won just one of their 13 Premier League games.
18' Bruce's men break down the right-hand side through Wilson, who fires a low cross towards Joelinton at the front post but Cahill makes a crucial interception. Almiron and Lewis then recycle the ball before the left-back crosses towards Joelinton, however, the cross floats out for a goal-kick.
F. Fernández
Yellow Card
17' Fernandez is the first name in Scott's book as the centre-back is cautioned for his cynical foul on Schlupp.
17' Schlupp looks set to be away down the left wing before Fernandez takes matters into his own hands and shoves the Palace man to the floor.
16' The visitors retain possession for over two minutes without any penetration of Hodgson's defence, Darlow then opts to play long towards Joelinton and the Magpies, again, keep the ball.
14' Schlupp and Ayew look to combine on the left but the latter's first touch is poor which allows the visitors' defence to intervene and clear for a throw-in.
12' After a fairly slow start, the Eagles are now seeing more of the possession. This time, Ayew goes on a mazy run through the left-hand side, which then results in the striker needlessly fouling Fernandez on the edge of the Magpies' area.
11' Townsend's corner does not beat the first man, Palace then look to recycle possession but the set-piece taker is ushered away as the ball trickles out for a Newcastle throw.
10' Van Aanholt gets a crossing opportunity from the left-hand side and centre-back Clark has to head behind for the first corner of the game.
9' Joelinton coasts past Kouyate and reaches the edge of the area before blasting a left-footed effort both high and wide of Guaita's goal.
7' Lewis overlaps Almiron and looks to be past Clyne before opting to play backwards as the visitors choose to retain possession. Bruce's men then rotate the ball from side to side for minute or so without going any where. Shelvey then looks long for Wilson and Cahill is forced into conceding a throw-in wide on the right.
6' The hosts are winless in all 12 of their top-flight league games played on Fridays (D5 L7). It’s the most games played by a club on a specific weekday without picking up a single victory in top-flight history.
5' The Magpies have started the stronger of the two sides, with Wilson already finding pockets of space behind Palace's defence and his pace could hurt the Eagles here, especially with Dann and Cahill as the centre-back pairing.
3' CHANCE! Almiron releases Joelinton down the left and Newcastle's number nine manages to get his head up, looking for Wilson at the front post. Wilson looks set to pounce on the low, driven cross inside the six-yard area, however, Cahill just beats the striker to it and pokes away the danger.
2' Wilson feels he should have a free-kick early doors, thanks to Dann's tackle but referee Scott insists play goes on. Fernandez is then forced into playing long and the centre-back's pass trickles through to Guaita.
1' Referee Graham Scott blows his whistle to get this Premier League fixture underway!
The players are making their way out onto the pitch at Selhurst Park and shortly kick-off will be upon us.
The Magpies have lost more Premier League away games in London than any other side in the competition’s history (79). However, Bruce’s men are unbeaten in the capital so far this season (W1 D1), last going three without defeat in London between May 2013 - January 2014 (5).
Steve Bruce welcomes back striker Wilson from injury and he will partner Joelinton up top. Crucially for the visitors, both Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamal Lascelles miss out through injury.
The biggest news for Roy Hodgson’s side is that there is still no Wilfried Zaha, as his isolation period continues. The Eagles make two changes, with Schlupp and Cahill coming in for Riedewald and Batshuayi, which means Kouyate will move forward into midfield.
SUBS: Matt Ritchie, Matthew Longstaff, Jacob Murphy, Fabian Schar, Mark Gillespie, DeAndre Yedlin, Elliot Anderson.
NEWCASTLE UNITED (4-3-3): Karl Darlow; Javier Manquillo, Federico Fernandez, Jamal Lewis, Ciaran Clark; Sean Longstaff, Jonjo Shelvey, Jeff Hendrick; Joelinton, Callum Wilson, Miguel Almiron.
SUBS: Mamadou Sakho, Joel Ward, James Tomkins, Christian Benteke, Jack Butland, Michy Batshuayi, Jairo Riedewald.
CRYSTAL PALACE (4-2-3-1): Vicente Guaita; Gary Cahill, Nathaniel Clyne, Scott Dann, Patrick van Aanholt; James McArthur, Cheikhou Kouyate; Jeffrey Schlupp, Andros Townsend, Eberechi Eze; Jordan Ayew.
Despite the hosts sitting four places above Newcastle in 11th, only two points separate the sides. Both teams come into this game off the back of underwhelming performances against Burnley and Chelsea respectively.
