With the 2014/15 campaign done and dusted, we recall the best five victories.

1. Liverpool (away) 3-1

While Sky TV were creaming themselves over Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard on his final Anfield appearance, Palace gleefully spoiled the midfielder's OTT love-in. On Gerrard's special day, it was all going to plan for him as Adam Lallana took advantage of Martin Kelly's error to put his team ahead. But a brilliant Jason Puncheon 20-yard free-kick levelled matters before substitute Wilfried Zaha tucked the ball in for 2-1 with his very first touch. Zaha then won a penalty which fellow sub Glenn Murray converted at the second attempt. A first Premier League double over the Reds.

2. Manchester City (home) 2-1

It was another memorable night under the lights at Selhurst Park as Palace toppled the Premier League champions. There was a hint of offside as Joel Ward, Joe Ledley and Scott Dann combined for Glenn Murray to score the opener. Jason Puncheon curled over the City wall and into the bottom right corner with a superb free-kick to extend Palace's lead. Yaya Toure pulled one back for the away side as the Eagles registered their first victory over City since 2001.

3. Sunderland (away) 4-1

Palace secured their first league win at Sunderland since 1979 after Yannick Bolasie's inspirational performance. The lively winger netted an 11-minute hat-trick in the second period to become the first Palace player to claim a Premier League treble. Glenn Murray got the scoring under way with a header and Bolasie propelled the Eagles into a 4-0 lead until Conor Wickham grabbed a last-minute consolation.

4. Tottenham Hotspur (home) 2-1

Alan Pardew collected his first Premier League win as Crystal Palace boss - but the Eagles had to come from behind after Harry Kane arrowed Spurs into the lead. In the second half, Dwight Gayle confidently dispatched an equaliser from the spot after Joe Ledley was fouled. And Jason Puncheon got the winner late on from Wilfied Zaha's assist.

5. Liverpool (home) 3-1

Neil Warnock's finest hour from his second spell as Palace manager saw the Eagles record a nice victory. They had to recover from a second-minute Ricky Lambert goal but Dwight Gayle restored parity by reacting quickest to slot in after Yannick Bolasie's shot hit the post. Joe Ledley swept home for 2-1 and then Mile Jedinak blasted an amazing free-kick into the top right to seal a glorious win.
