Tony Pulis tasted home defeat as Crystal Palace manager for the first time as his side was comprehensively beaten by Newcastle 3-0 at a wet and windy Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Newcastle have racked up impressive away victories at Tottenham and Manchester United in recent weeks and it was Yohan Cabaye, the returning match-winner from Old Trafford, who opened the scoring in the 25th minute.The French international was recalled after missing the draw against Southampton due to suspension and his deflected strike set Newcastle on its way.

Palace enjoyed its best spell of possession following Cabaye's effort but went 2-0 down when Danny Gabbidon turned a dangerous cross past his own goalkeeper shortly before half time.

Newcastle dominated the second half and grabbed a third in the 86th, courtesy of a late penalty from substitute Hatem Ben Arfa.
