  • GOAL! SCOTT DANN HEADS CRYSTAL PALACE INTO THE LEAD! 1-0! Appeals for a free-kick following a challenge that put Ayew on the ground go unanswered but Palace do get a corner - and the resulting set-piece is tucked into the far top corner by the defender with a cracking header, rising above Cooper to beat Meslier. The Eagles are ahead inside the opening quarter-hour.

  • GOAL! EBERECHI EZE DOUBLES CRYSTAL PALACE'S LEAD! 2-0! It's an absolute rocket of a free-kick, hoisted over the wall and banged into the near top-left corner. Meslier perhaps should have had that better covered. Bad to worse for Leeds; Palace are in dreamland.

  • GOAL! PATRICK BAMFORD PULLS ONE BACK FOR LEEDS UNITED! 2-1! You're surely not denying the striker there, that is a clinical finish. Palace's defenders fail to defuse a looping ball into their box that Klich might get a slight nudge on - and the ex-Chelsea graduate roars through, controls it with a touch of his chest and rifles a low finish into the bottom-left corner. Fantastic stuff to bring Leeds back into this contest.

  • GOAL! IT'S A THIRD FOR CRYSTAL PALACE! 3-1! This will go down as a Helder Costa own goal, as, on the left edge of the 18-yard box, the winger slides in to deflect a cross from Patrick van Aanholt. Instead, it takes an acute deflection, and somehow squeaks under Meslier at the left post and bounces back in off the right. That is a horror-show goal to concede for Leeds. Palace strike just before the break.

  • Cooper now picks up the first booking of the game for a particularly stern challenge on Zaha. Borderline whether it was a card, but he's flashed the yellow anyway.

  • GOAL! JORDAN AYEW SEALS IT FOR CRYSTAL PALACE! 4-1! What a day for Roy Hodgson - and what a result for the Eagles. Zaha cuts in off the left flank, and finds his way to the Leeds box, slipping a neat ball in for his strike partner - and though Meslier gets a hand to it, the power behind the shot deflects it into the net with a slow arc. A fist-pump from the attacker; he's surely sealed an emphatic return to winning ways for the hosts.

  • Klich cuts down Zaha on the counter and picks up a booking for his efforts. Leeds have done admirably well to not get too frustrated so far, but there could be some rash challenges now if they're not careful.
