  • GOAL! CRYSTAL PALACE OPEN UP THIS GAME TO TAKE THE LEAD! 1-0! Oh, Ben Foster will not want to see that one back. Gallagher turns a loose cross in from the right and a deflection carries it to Jean-Philippe Mateta. He's afforded far too much space to collect, pivot and shoot but the goalkeeper goes entirely the wrong way and the ball thuds into the back of the net. The Eagles are off to a flyer!

  • GOAL! WATFORD OFFER AN IMMEDIATE RESPONSE! 1-1! Barely three minutes after conceding, a Hornets corner is picked up on the left flank. It's swung in wonderfully to the six-yard area and Moussa Sissoko towers over everyone too easily, planting a routine header home near the closest post.

  • Samir comes in with a clattering challenge high in the air and is duly booked. That would have got him in trouble in a game of rugby.

  • GOAL! CRYSTAL PALACE RETAKE THE LEAD JUST BEFORE THE BREAK! 2-1! Conor Gallagher, take a bow - that is a lovely touch! The Chelsea loanee won't hurt his England prospects with moves like that, picked up by Mitchell's deep cut-back in the box. He takes one touch to control it and then leathers his second straight past Foster and nearly rips off the netting. Superb!

  • GOAL! CRYSTAL PALACE SEAL THE DEAL! 3-1! Who else, but Wilfried Zaha to haunt his old boss! He puts this result to bed against Roy Hodgson and Watford, with a lovely left-footer after bringing down a looping ball on the far side of the box. Grand stuff.

  • GOAL! CRYSTAL PALACE TOP IT OFF WITH SOMETHING SPECIAL! 4-1! From deep in their own half, the Eagles fly forth on the counter. The long ball picks out Wilfried Zaha on the left and he cuts back in around two before firing a fantastic finish past Foster to nestle at the far post. Pick that one out!
