Crystal Palace Slug out a draw at home against Newcastle After Newcastle sacks Steve Bruce
Crystal Palace Slug out a draw at Home against Newcastle after Callum Wilson’s superb performance earned Newcastle’s temporarily appointed manager Graeme Jones a point after the new owners sacked Steve Bruce.
The Referee, Darren England, ruled out Christian Benteke’s 87th-minute header due to an infringement in the penalty area, which would have earned Crystal Palace a deserved victory.
Statistics show that Crystal Palace was the better side over Newcastle, but VAR denied Patrick Viera’s side a victory.
Benteke had earlier hit both a post and the crossbar while he missed another quality chance after he opened the scoring in a one-sided contest at Selhurst Park that later ended as a 1-1 draw.
Crystal Palace sits 15th on the table while Newcastle is just above Norwich, who were thrashed 7 – 0 by the European Champions (Chelsea).
