LONDON (AP) — Tony Pulis tasted home defeat as Crystal Palace manager for the first time as his side was comprehensively beaten by Newcastle 3-0 at a wet and windy Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Newcastle has racked up impressive away victories at Tottenham and Manchester United in recent weeks and it was Yohan Cabaye, the returning match-winner from Old Trafford, who opened the scoring in the 25th minute.

The France international was recalled after missing the draw against Southampton due to suspension and his deflected strike set Newcastle on its way.

Palace enjoyed its best spell of possession following Cabaye's effort but went 2-0 down when Danny Gabbidon turned a dangerous cross past his own goalkeeper shortly before half time.

Newcastle dominated the second half and grabbed a third in the 86th, courtesy of a late penalty from substitute Hatem Ben Arfa.
