  • GOAL! JEFFERY SCHLUPP HANDS CRYSTAL PALACE THE LEAD! 1-0! That didn't take long! It's Zaha with the break down the left wing, a cut-back for Benteke that's tapped on and the midfielder is there to drill a fine finish past Ramsdale. The perfect start for the Eagles!

  • Eze is indeed Palace's first change of the game and it is a sad end for Schlupp in this match.

  • Bogle comes in, studs up, on Zaha and is duly booked for his efforts. Palace have a free-kick out on the left wing, a handful of yards from the United box.

  • GOAL! EBERECHI EZE MAKES IT TWO FOR CRYSTAL PALACE! 2-0! What a solo run and finish from the substitute! He carves a path from inside his own half, shrugs off three or four defenders and blasts a finish into the bottom right corner past Ramsdale. Delightful!

  • This isn't good news for Palace; a second forced injury change of the game. Benteke is hobbling and this time the swap is made swiftly, with Jordan Ayew thrown on in his place as he shuffles off.

  • Norwood lunges in with a lazy challenge now and Palace have a free-kick just inside the visitors' half - though they fail to carve a good chance out of it.

  • Foolish from Eze now, who pile-drives into Ampadu and picks up a booking for his troubles. The free-kick is far enough away that Guaita is left untroubled by it though.

  • Some history for Sheffield United! Antwoine Hackford is on for Ben Osborn. Born in 2004, he becomes one of a rare group of 16-year-olds to make their Premier League debut.

  • Fleck gets flashed a yellow card for a late challenge here. Frustration slipping into United as this game perhaps finally slips away from a possible result.
