  • TREZEGUET IS OFF! It's a very late challenge from the forward as he blocks off Zaha's run down the right wing. It's a bad decision from someone on a booking and the referee is quickly across to show him his second yellow and then the red. Villa down to 10!

  • AYEW PUTS PALACE AHEAD! It's a very quick break for Palace and Schlupp picks out Ayew's run into the box. The forward looks like he was going to cross it, but a deflection off Grealish takes it back into his path and he curls his effort past Heaton and into the bottom right corner. 1-0 Palace!
