Crystal Palace got their first summer victory on English soil with a 5-0 thumping of Bristol City.

Andros Townsend got the scoring underway in the 13th minute with a close-range finish after Patrick van Aanholt's shot deflected into his path.

Palace doubled their advantage a minute later after a fine Jeffrey Schlupp chip over keeper Dan Bentley that bounced into the back of the net.

The Eagles got their third goal eight minutes after the break with a Christian Benteke header from Luka Milivojevic's cross.

Max Meyer made it 4-0 in the 70th minute with a cool finish beyond Bentley after the ball kindly to him off James McArthur.

Six minutes later, substitute Connor Wickham turned in Townsend's cutback for the fifth and final goal against the Championship side at Ashton Gate.

Palace: Guaita, Van Aanholt, Dann (Sakho 71), Kelly (Woods 81), Ward, Meyer, Milivojevic (Dreher 81), McArthur (Riedewald 81), Townsend, Schlupp (Ayew 45), Benteke (Wickham 66)
