Crystal Palace's poor start to the season continued with a 2-1 loss at Middlesbrough.
It's the first time in 39 years Palace have failed to win any of the opening three fixtures of a league campaign.
Brazilian midfielder Andre Moritz, who signed for the Eagles on Friday, was on the bench.
Boro got their noses in front four minutes before half-time from a corner. Julian Speroni pushed an Adam Reach effort over the bar and Seb Hines headed in Grant Leadbitter's corner.
Six minutes into the seond period, the hosts extended their lead through a Merouane Zemmama free-kick after Wilfried Zaha brought down George Friend on the edge of the area.
Palace pulled a goal back on 56 minutes with a Jermaine Easter penalty - his second goal of the season - after getting fouled in the area by Josh McEachran.
