Story The Crystal Palace v Newcastle Statistics Tell
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?!!
