Palace took an early lead through James McArthur, whose low cross eluded everyone to drift in at the back post in the 16th minute.
Andros Townsend scored a scorcher with a fantastic left-footed drive 12 minutes from time. Joe Hart made several good saves to keep the scoreline respectable.
Palace enjoyed 59% of possession during the game. They had attempted 29 shots, the most they have had in any Premier League game since 2003-04.
