Newcastle player ratings v Crystal Palace: Under pressure man unsung hero with 9/10 display
Newcastle United were forced to share the points with Crystal Palace after a tightly fought 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park in their Premier League clash on Sunday.
The Magpies took the lead in the first half thanks to Mohamed Diame’s second goal of the season, the 30-year-old poking home unmarked at the back post after a corner which squirmed its way through the packed box.
However Rafael Benitez’s side could not hold off the Eagles and keep a clean sheet, with Luka Milvojevic slotting home from a penalty after Ciaran Clark’s tug on Christian Benteke, despite Karl Darlow getting a hand to the ball from the spot kick.
