Story The Crystal Palace v Newcastle Statistics Tell

9 years ago

A three goal win but do the Crystal Palace v Newcastle statistics back that up? Was the reality of the 90 minutes as good as the scoreline?

What came out of today’s match according to BBC Statistics is the following;

Possession                    NUFC 67%   Palace 33%

Total Shots                   NUFC 13          Palace 9

Shots On Target           NUFC  6        Palace 4

Corners                          NUFC 7          Palace 3

Goals                              NUFC 3            Palace 0

It may not have been a classic match (in a stylish football sense) but Palace only lost 2-1 at Stamford Bridge last week and before that had only conceded one goal in the previous five matches.

To go there and turn in such a dominant performance, not in the best conditions, is a tribute to manager and players.

To outscore the home side in every department…including goals(!) is a great result all round.

More possession, more shots, more on target, more corners and more goals.

What more could you ask for?!!
