  • GOOOAAALLL! Palace take the lead, it's 1-0! The goal has come against the run of play, with Watford looking the better team, but a terrific strike from Ayew has put the hosts ahead! Zaha and Benteke linked up well down the left, before McArthur lays the ball off to Ayew, who smashes it into the top right-hand corner of the net.
