Palace comes from behind to snatch a late 2-1 win over Southampton. It was a game of two halves, with Southampton enjoying the better of the first 45 minutes.
And took an early lead when Romeu headed his shot in off the crossbar.
Palace rallied after the break and equalised through Eze, whose shot rolled through Forster’s legs.
Zaha came off the bench, and when it looked like nothing was on, deep in stoppage time.
He squeezed a shot in off the bottom of the near post to finish the comeback.

ROMEU SCORES! Ward cleared Ward-Prowse’s free-kick at the near post to give away the corner, and the captain has another chance to put the ball in from a set-piece. It’s a lovely cross from him and Romeu just nudges McArthur out of the way in the middle to thump his header off the bottom of the crossbar. 1-0 Southampton!
EZE EQUALISES! It’s a great cross from Clyne, who lifts it in from the byline down the right and it loops over everyone in the middle. Eze lets it drop on the far side before drilling a low shot on goal. It rolls through Forster’s legs, and the keeper will feel he should’ve done better, but it’s 1-1!
ZAHA SCORES! It’s wonderful from Zaha! McArthur slides a lovely through-ball into Zaha on the edge of the box, and he does brilliantly to spin away from Bednarek. It doesn’t look like there’s a lot on with the two defenders ahead of him, but he squeezes it through the gap towards the near post, and it hits the bottom of the upright on its way over the line. 2-1 Palace.
So, what’s next?
Palace’s run of four games without a win is over, and they’ve moved up to 12th in the table, now on 41 points.
Next up for them is the visit of their former manager, Roy Hodgson, with Watford.
Southampton slips to 15th and is winless in their last three. They travel to Brentford next weekend.
