Comments:

Final league position 2014-15: 10th Marouane Chamakh scored only his second goal of the season thus ending a run of 1,008 minutes without a Premier League goal. His first was in September. This was the Eagles' first win against Swansea City since a 3-1 away win on 14 March 2009 in the League Championship which then completed a league double. Crystal Palace’s 48 points was the highest total in their Premier League history for a 38-match season. This was the Eagles' first clean sheet since their 1-0 victory over Leicester City on 7 February 2015. This was Crystal Palace’s 100th top flight home win. If the Premier League had started when Alan Pardew took over as manager in January, the Eagles would have finished sixth.
