Crystal Palace 1-1 Newcastle: Patrick Vieira’s side denied win by VAR decision

Crystal Palace’s frustrating week continued on Saturday with a draw at home to Newcastle United.

While Patrick Vieira’s side had the better of proceedings - much as they did away at Arsenal on Monday - they proved unable to convert their dominance into a victory, meaning they have now drawn four times in a row.

Newcastle, under interim manager Graeme Jones, were second best for the majority of the game but earned a share of the spoils as Palace were unable to capitalise on their chances despite dominating nearly 75% of possession.

Christian Benteke gave Palace the breakthrough in the 56th minute before Wilson brought Newcastle level almost 10 minutes later with an overhead kick before the Belgian striker had a late effort disallowed by VAR after a foul in the build-up.

Benteke latched onto an inviting cross from Tyrick Mitchell and powered through the Newcastle defence to head past goalkeeper Karl Darlow, making up for an earlier missed opportunity when he hit the post after 20 minutes.

Palace were then punished for failing to clear a corner, with Newcastle defender Emil Krafth heading the ball towards Wilson who produced an unstoppable bicycle kick.

Newcastle, who remain without a league win this season, remain second-bottom on four points, while Palace’s sixth draw leaves them in 15th place on nine points from nine games.
