Ten-man Crystal Palace topples faltering West Ham United, 3-1

Publish date:

LONDON (AP) — Crystal Palace continued its rise under new manager Alan Pardew on Saturday when, reduced to 10 men, it won 3-1 at West Ham in the Premier League.

The win extended its unbeaten away run to a club record five league games. Sliding West Ham has now won only once in 10.

All three Palace goals came from set pieces, producing first-half goals from corners for Glenn Murray — whose header was slashed into his own net by Aaron Cresswell — and Scott Dann. Murray headed in a third after a 63rd-minute free kick.

Murray was sent off six minutes later for a second yellow card.

Mark Noble and substitute Nene hit the woodwork for West Ham before Enner Valencia struck with a 20-meter shot after 76 minutes.
