For a while, the most fun part of this game seemed to be the clash of booming voices on the Selhurst Park contact line. Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce would scream, then Crystal Palace assistant Ray Lewington would scream louder.
In the end, Bruce’s boys had the bite to go with the bark. In the 88. Callum Wilson broke through at the gate and slashed, cool as you like, between Vicente Guaita’s legs.
Then Joelinton got involved. In the 89. Minute, the Newcastle striker confirmed the goal and scored a goal through a distraction from Gary Cahill. Bruce doesn’t care how it went in.
This confirmed a win that pushed Newcastle out of this dreaded danger zone and into the top half of the table, albeit until Saturday’s Premier League games.
Neither team has scored more goals in the last five minutes of this season. Once again it was the late show for Newcastle and a big blow to Roy Hodgson and Palace.
Selhurst Park was initially empty and without support – that’s why we could hear Bruce and Lewington so clearly. But those in attendance put their hands together for a minute of applause for Diego Maradona before they started. In honor of the Argentine magician, the players also wore black armbands.
There wasn’t a lot of magic in the first 20 minutes of this game. The two men, who know how to put things into action, tuned in from home.
There wasn’t much magic
in the first 20 minutes of that game at Selhurst Park
Wilfried Zaha is in a period of self-isolation after a positive coronavirus test, while Allan Saint-Maximin was absent after discovering a muscle problem during training the night before the game.
Sportsmail announced that Bruce was ready to drop the winger after losing form recently. In his and Zaha’s absence, this turned into an arm wrestling.
Lewington, who wore shorts on a bitter cold night, grew livelier. Not just because he wanted to keep warm, but because Newcastle opened up opportunities.
They had tried their luck from afar, then Eberechi Eze from Palace decided to try his luck.
It was a good try too. Eze’s 25-yard hit went to the top corner until Karl Darlow refused to open it. That was Palace’s first shot on or off the target.
Then Darlow was put into action again, stopping another attempt at Eze with a strong right hand.
Newcastle could have scored ahead of break when poor defense against Scott Dann gave £ 40m Joelinton a chance. He rubbed off his shot and made it easy for Vicente Guaita.
The half-time whistle went and the substitutes hurried down the tunnel with their hot water bottles. One of them could soon be needed to bring the game to life.
Palace responded after having the lowest average possession in the Premier League this season. Newcastle responded after averaging the penultimate.
Neither is used to having the ball, but the hosts kept it here more.
Palace wanted to be the one on the forefoot. When Newcastle took a goal kick, Lewington shouted, “We’re not going too far. We keep it. ‘
Casual free kicks for both sides followed. Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey hit him on the wall, then Palace’s Patrick van Aanholt repeated the trick.
Christian Benteke and Jairo Riedewald were introduced by Roy Hodgson, while Bruce approached Matt Ritchie. Crosses became an issue after that.
Benteke hit one, but couldn’t aim it at the goal due to the force of the ball in the penalty area. Joelinton then only met you a few inches.
It became end to end. A direct run from the center line by Sean Longstaff resulted in a free kick – dead center of the goal 20 yards away. Shelvey and Ritchie stood above it.
The latter took this and shot the ball directly at a grateful Guaita. Darlow on the other end then denied Benteke as the later winner to go home.
In the 88. Minute, Newcastle pinched the points. Wilson finished neatly, nutmeg guaita. Then, a minute later, Joelinton fired a shot into it. A big win for Bruce.
Newcastle scored twice late after a rather uneventful game at Selhurst Park. Callum Wilson brought the toon in the 88. Minute in the lead and the three points were sealed only 100 seconds later by Joelinton.
An unforgettable night for Roy Hodgson’s team, who missed great opportunities through Christian Benteke and Jordan Ayew.

The hosts enjoy their first stint of meaningful possession but cannot find a way through the Newcastle backline. Jordan Ayew fouls then Federico Fernandez and Newcastle clear their lines.
Joelinton now has his own chance after winning the ball in midfield. But his left foot from a distance flies far over the bar. It was a good start in Newcastle to sit on the forefoot more than some expected.
The first chance of the game is Newcastle when Joelinton almost finds Callum Wilson as they stand behind the Newcastle defense. Well defended by Gary Cahill.
A win for Crystal Palace could see them jump to sixth place in the Premier League, while Newcastle would overtake today’s opponents with a win of their own.
The home team has projected images reminiscent of football legend Diego Maradona, who passed away on Wednesday at the age of 60.
With Palace dealing with the loss of Zaha, Newcastle will also have to do without Allan Saint-Maximin. The French winger is injured and Steve Bruce’s side need some creativity elsewhere in their attack.
The Ivorian has scored five goals and two assists so far this season and, according to this season, has been at the heart of everything good about the Eagles.
