Comments:

League position: 8th Crystal Palace had now failed to score in five consecutive Premier League games for the first time since February 1998. This was Palace's biggest defeat in the Premier League since losing 0-4 at Everton on 10 April 2005. Although the Eagles had lost 1-5 at Manchester City in the Capital One Cup in October 2015, this was the first time they had conceded four goals in a Premier League game since Fulham's 4-1 win at Selhurst Park on 21 October 2013.
