Player rankings as the Eagles hold the Champions League champions

Neither side could find a winner at Selhurst Park on Saturday night as Crystal Palace held fourth-placed Newcastle United to pick up a point.

Newcastle It ranks third in the English Premier League, ahead of Manchester United on goal difference after playing one more game, while castle They are 12th with their winless streak in the league now at four matches.

Joelinton’s half-volley caught Tyrek Mitchell’s volley to quickly send Vicente Goyata in, but the Spaniard did well to keep the shot out of danger. Palace were calm and Chris Richards’ header off target from a set piece was as close to the first half as they could get.

Wilson turned down a great opportunity after the break. The England striker had a free header from ten yards out but could only convert a powerful shot straight to Guaita.

Palace managed to test Magpies goalkeeper Nick Pope later on, as substitute Jean-Philippe Mattita saw him drive from 12 yards to safety.

Kieran Trippier’s cross was found by Alexander Isaacs, but despite finding space, the Swede couldn’t generate enough force at his head. The visitors’ relentless pressure ended at full-time, taking their unbeaten run to 15 league matches in a row.
