  • Full-time: Crystal Palace 0 Newcastle 3 (Cabaye 25, Gabbidon og 39, Ben Arfa pen 86).

  • Four minutes of added-on time to be played.

  • Delaney strikes a low shot from long distance but it's an easy save for Krul.

  • Cabaye is the regular Newcastle penalty taker, but his replacement Ben Arfa steps up to strike this one and hits it firmly to Speroni's left. There's too much power on it for Speroni to keep out.

  • GOAL! Crystal Palace 0 Newcastle 3 (Hatem Ben Arfa pen 86)

  • PENALTY TO NEWCASTLE! Parr brings down Ameobi in the box (85)..

  • Ben Arfa has been excellent since coming on, and his low cross from the left goes across the face of goal when all it needed was a touch.

  • YELLOW CARD! Marouane Chamakh is booked for a foul on Coloccini (83). That'll be a one-match ban for the Palace striker as it's his fifth caution of the campaign, so he'll have to sit out the Boxing Day clash at Aston Villa.

  • Speroni then has to save from Ben Arfa after Gouffran does brilliantly to keep the ball in play. Santon sees a shot deflected wide for a corner.

  • Ben Arfa goes past Jedinak into the box and while stumbling, he manages to get the ball to the edge of the area where Gouffran strikes - but his shot clips the left-hand post!

  • Second change for Newcastle (79) - Ben Arfa ON, Cabaye OFF.

  • Cabaye is denied by the feet of Speroni. The Frenchman could have had a hat-trick today.

  • Palace make their final substitution (77) - Gayle ON, Jerome OFF.

  • First change for Newcastle (75) - Shola Ameobi ON, Remy OFF.

  • Risky challenge by Tiote, as he dives in for a tackle on Parr. It should have been a corner, but Swarbrick strangely awards a goal kick.

  • Delaney is just offside after being played in by Bolasie. Frustrating spell for Palace.

  • Palace's relegation rivals Fulham have drawn level at home to Manchester City, courtesy of an own goal by Vincent Kompany. It's 2-2 at the Cottage. If results stay the same, the Eagles will drop to 19th.

  • Cabaye cuts inside from the left flank and shoots, but his shot bounces wide of Speroni's far post.

  • Big chance for Jerome, but he fluffs it! At the back post, Jedinak got up to head the free-kick down towards his striker but Jerome leant back and volleyed over the bar. He needed to keep it down.
