Crystal Palace claimed a 4-1 win at home to Stoke City.

They collected their first Premier League home win and move up to eighth to ensure Stoke stay anchored to the bottom of the table.

Palace took the lead after just nine minutes through James Tomkins - with a bit of help from Stoke's Jon Walters. Andros Townsend sent over a free-kick to the back post and Walters headed the ball into his own net and Tomkins got the final touch.

Just two minutes later, the Eagles doubled their advantage when Scott Dann powered home a bullet header from Jason Puncheon's corner from the right

The Eagles made it 3-0 on 71 minutes after James McArthur's shot took a deflection off Geoff Cameron and into the back of the net.

Three minutes later, Townsend added a fourth with an excellent run, which culminated in a right-foot strike into the bottom corner for his first Palace goal.

Marko Arnautovic pulled a goal back in stoppage time for Stoke with a wonderful effort to deny Palace a clean sheet.
