NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Crystal Palace recovered from conceding after 71 seconds to win 2-1 at Newcastle thanks to first-half goals by Jairo Riedewald and Gary Cahill on Tuesday in the Premier League.
Palace’s second straight victory puts it 15 points clear of the relegation zone, while Newcastle has lost six of its last seven league games.
Jonjo Shelvey scored early, but Newcastle was made to pay for its defensive frailty twice within four minutes.
Riedewald smashed home an equalizer from 25 meters in the 21st after being allowed to run onto a half-clearance, and Cahill lost his marker to meet a free kick with a powerful header to become Palace’s oldest Premier League scorer — at 35 years and 45 days.
Palace’s star forward, Wilfried Zaha, left the field in the second half with a suspected hamstring injury.
The loss leaves Newcastle in 16th place, eight points above the drop zone.
