That is all from us folks, thanks for joining us. Goodbye!
Newcastle looked a little lost in the second half, and they will need to try regroup quickly after this defeat. Bruce's tactics didn't really work in the second 45 minutes, and they seemed to have too many strikers on the pitch without a plan. On the other hand, Palace defended heroically, and back-to-back wins now push them back towards the top 10.
Newcastle fail to find a way back into the game, and despite taking the lead at home, they fall to defeat at St James' Park. Shelvey gave them the perfect start after scoring inside the first minute, but their joy only lasted for a short while. Two quickfire goals from Riedewald and Cahill punished Newcastle in the first half, and they did not have enough in the final third to draw level.
90' + 5' CARROLL!!! The former Liverpool man sees a header saved by Guaita and that should be all we have time for. Carroll climbed above Van Aanholt to win the ball, but the Palace keeper was in the perfect spot to deny him.
90' + 4' Newcastle need to get hold of the ball and get Carroll, Gayle or Wilson one final chance.
J. Ayew
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Ayew is carded for a blatant foul as he successfully stopped a Newcastle counter-attack.
C. Kouyaté
J. Riedewald
90' + 2' Final sub for Palace sees Riedewald replaced by Kouyate for the final few moments.
90' + 1' WHAT A MISS! It should be all over, but Townsend has somehow missed the target from point-blank range. Eze played his team-mate into the perfect position, with Townsend only needing to roll the ball into the corner of an empty net. He takes his eye off the prize and fires wide. Oh dear!
90' + 1' Saint-Maxmin goes down in a heap, and he is claiming he was fouled by Clyne, who has already been carded.
90' Four minutes of stoppage time to come...
A. Carroll
C. Clark
89' One final change for the Magpies as Carroll replaces Clark.
86' Hodgson's men have done a great job in the last few minutes. They have won the ball higher up the pitch and Newcastle are struggling to get back into the final third.
83' Palace seem content to try and absorb the pressure, but Newcastle now have all of their attacking weapons on the pitch. This could be an exciting final 10 minutes.
80' BLOCK!!! Saint-Maximin dribbles his way into the box and lets fly. His shot looked destined for the back of the net, but Dann throws his body behind the ball and concedes a corner.
D. Gayle
Javi Manquillo
77' Bruce makes another attacking change, with Gayle on for the final 13 minutes as Manquillo makes way.
75' Schar draws a save out of Guaita, but his header is tame, to say the least, and the Palace keeper didn't have to move to make the save.
C. Benteke
M. Batshuayi
73' Batshuayi has barely featured tonight and he gets hauled off, with Benteke on in his place.
73' OVER! Shelvey fires over from the free-kick, with the midfielder getting underneath the ball at the back post and heading behind for a goal-kick.
L. Milivojević
Yellow Card
71' Milivojevic is shown a yellow card and the referee had little choice. The Palace skipper caught Wilson with a diving lunge and Newcastle now have a free-kick in a good position.
70' Clark ends up on the floor from the set-piece, but the referee penalises Wilson for a push at the near post, so the officials ignore any penalty appeals. 
69' Saint-Maximin wins his side a corner, can Newcastle create something here?
66' TACKLE! Clyne saves the day for Palace as he stops Wilson in his tracks, just as the striker was about to shoot inside the box. Thankfully, Clyne got the ball and managed to win a goal-kick in the process.
A. Saint-Maximin
J. Hendrick
63' Bruce is going for it after the hour mark as Hendrick is replaced by Saint-Maximin. 
60' Even though Zaha has now gone off, this game does not get any easier for Newcastle. Townsend can be just as explosive, and they should know all about that, with the winger a former Magpies player himself.
A. Townsend
W. Zaha
58' Zaha limps his way down the tunnel and Townsend comes on for the final half-hour.
58' OK ignore that, Zaha has gone down and he appears to be indicating his evening is over. He is removing the ankle tape and seems resigned to coming off, but the medical staff will do what they can to help.
56' Zaha appears to have shaken off the issue, and he is running more freely at the minute.
54' Injury worry for Palace as Zaha appears to have picked up a leg injury, he is able to run, but he looks like he wants reassurance from the medical team.
53' Palace deal with the danger but Newcastle are not going down without a fight so far!
52' Clark tries to volley home Fraser's corner but his effort is deflected behind for another set-piece...
N. Clyne
Yellow Card
51' Clyne joins Shelvey in the book after a sloppy challenge near the edge of his own box as he brings down Fraser.
47' SAVE!!! Van Aanholt brings the best out of Darlow who concedes a corner, but the offside flag goes up.
46' We are back underway!
After conceding the second goal, Newcastle could have gone into their shell and struggled in the final third. However, Schar has gone close twice, while Fraser was denied on two occasions by Guaita. If they can keep their heads, they can draw level, but either way, we should be in for an exciting second 45 minutes.
A thrilling first 45 minutes comes to a close at St James' Park, and after taking the lead, Newcastle are now behind on home soil. Shelvey fired them in front inside the first minute after drilling Wilson's cutback into the bottom corner. Riedewald drew Palace level with a powerful strike of his own, before Cahill's header from a free-kick put Palace in front. 
45' Two minutes of stoppage time to come at the end of the first half...
43' If Palace are to seal all three points, they could do with bringing Zaha into the game a little more. He has barely had a kick so far inside the first 40 minutes.
40' Batshuayi goes for glory from distance, but he doesn't get any height on his shot and Darlow is on hand to dive on top of his effort.
39' WIDE! Schar is clearly in the mood as he smashes a shot wide of the far post from 20 yards out. He put plenty of power behind that strike, but his execution needs work. It remains 1-2, but that could change at any minute with the way these two are going at it.
37' SCHAR!! It should be 2-2, but Schar has somehow missed the target. The defender had a free header from the corner and steered it past the far post.
36' WIDE! Newcastle win a free-kick, and Almiron is a whisker away from finding the top corner. His curling effort took a deflection, and it will be a corner to the home side.
35' SAVE!! Fraser tests Guaita for the second time in four minutes, and the Palace keeper gets the better of him for the second time. Wilson picked out his strike partner with a delightful throughball, but Guaita was quick off his line to punch Fraser's lob away from trouble.
33' A penny for the thoughts of Bruce right now. Ten minutes into the game and everything looked rosy. Twenty minutes later his team are 1-2 down, and Palace look to have found their rhythm and could add a third before the break.
30' Guaita is called into action on the half-hour mark as he gets down to his right to deny Fraser. Shelvey bundled the ball into Fraser's path, but he failed to place his ball either side of the keeper.
J. Shelvey
Yellow Card
29' Shelvey picks up the first yellow card of the evening after chopping down Ayew on the halfway line.
27' Cahill is now Palace's oldest ever goalscorer in the Premier League after scoring his first top-flight goal since 2017.
E. Eze
25' Eze's fine debut season in the Premier League continues with another assist.
G. Cahill
25' GOAAAALLLL - NEWCASTLE 1-2 CRYSTAL PALACE - Cahill heads Palace into the lead, and this game has been turned on its head. The Magpies conceded a cheap free-kick, allowing Eze to pick his pass from near the corner flag. His cross was aimed towards the near post, and Cahill has got across goal and steered the ball home. Darlow had no chance and Palace lead. What a game we have on our hands here!
23' Two great goals so far in this match. Let's hope it continues!
J. Riedewald
21' THUNDERBOLT!!!!! NEWCASTLE 1-1 CRYSTAL PALACE - Riedewald draws Palace level with a piledriver from the edge of the box. Van Aanholt caused problems with a low cross, which Newcastle cleared to the edge of the area. Riedewald was lurking, and his powerful drive takes a deflection off Clark and flies past Darlow. GAME ON!
18' JUST OVER! Wilson volleys the ball over the crossbar and Palace are living dangerously, allowing him a free shot on the edge of the box.
16' The rain is falling pretty heavily at St James' Park; this should make it more interesting.
14' Palace fail to create another shooting opportunity from the set-piece, and Newcastle can breathe a sigh of relief.
13' CHANCE! Palace register their first effort on goal, and Ayew is denied by a late block from Lewis. The Palace striker tried to score with a diving header, but Lewis gets across him to concede a corner.
10' Palace will feel they can worm their way back into this tie, but they need to be careful. Almiron, Fraser and Wilson are all electrifyingly quick and need to be watched at all times.
9' SO CLOSE! Newcastle nearly double their advantage, but Hendrick sees his half-volley slide past the far post. After Palace failed to clear a corner, the former Burnley man wrapped his right foot around the ball and aimed for goal, only to see his shot sail wide.
6' It is early days, but Almiron looks bang up for this battle. The Paraguayan is zipping around the surface and looking for a pass inside the opening few minutes.
5' That is the fastest goal Palace have conceded in the Premier League since 1998. 
4' Palace look stunned and rightly so, they had barely had a kick of the ball before Shelvey fired home.
J. Shelvey
2' WHAT A START!!!!!! NEWCASTLE 1-0 CRYSTAL PALACE - Shelvey smashes the ball into the bottom corner and gives Newcastle the dream start at home. The playmaker popped up on the edge of the box and converted Wilson's pass into the far corner after drilling his shot under the bodies of three Palace players.
C. Wilson
2' Wilson deserves plenty of praise for his part in the goal. The England international brought the ball under control in the box before teeing up Shelvey.
1' We are underway at St James' Park.
The two teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is moments away.
The Magpies are looking to complete their first league double over Crystal Palace since the 2013-14 campaign, after their 2-0 win at Selhurst Park earlier this season.
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce makes just one change from the side that beat Everton as Clark replaces the injured Jamaal Lascelles. Hodgson makes two alterations to the team that battled past Wolves as James McCarthy and Kouyate dropping out of the starting XI, while Riedewald and Cahill get the chance to impress.
SUBS: Andros Townsend, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Jack Butland, Martin Kelly, Cheikhou Kouyate, Tyrick Mitchell, Christian Benteke.
CRYSTAL PALACE (4-2-3-1): Vicente Guaita; Nathaniel Clyne, Gary Cahill, Scott Dann, Patrick van Aanholt; Jairo Riedewald, Luka Milivojevic; Jordan Ayew, Eberechi Eze, Wilfried Zaha; Michy Batshuayi.
SUBS: Paul Dummett, Martin Dubravka, Andy Carroll, Emil Krafth, Dwight Gayle, Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Matthew Longstaff, Elliot Anderson.
NEWCASTLE (4-3-1-2): Karl Darlow; Javier Manquillo, Ciaran Clark, Fabian Schar, Jamal Lewis; Jeff Hendrick, Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey; Miguel Almiron; Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser.
Palace's 1-0 win over Wolves was their first in four, but their record on the road needs to improve. Roy Hodgson's side are without a win in five away from Selhurst Park, and they have not scored in their last four away from home.
Newcastle's 2-0 success over Everton was their first win in 12 in all competitions, and it has eased the pressure on manager Steve Bruce after a difficult few weeks. 
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Crystal Palace at St James' Park. The Magpies finally ended their wait for a win last weekend after beating Everton, while Palace proved too much for Wolves on Saturday.
