The visit from West Ham saw Michael Olise, Eberechi Eze and Jean-Philippe Mateta all score along with an own goal from Emerson Palmieri to give The Eagles the 4 - 0 lead at the half hour mark. Michail Antonio did score before halftime but Mateta scored again to restore the four goal cushion. An own goal from Dean Henderson saw West Ham score two but Palace held on for the 5 - 2 win.

Palace picked up another big win against Newcastle. Mateta scored twice in the second half to give The Eagles the 2 - 0 win, with Newcastle having just two shots on target.

The next time out for Palace was against Fulham where this time they fell behind early in the second half through a goal from Rodrigo Muniz. However, with just three minutes of normal time left, Jeffrey Schlupp found the back of the net to rescue a 1 - 1 draw for The Eagles.

Crystal Palace picked up their first ever league double over Manchester United following their win over them. A brace from Olise and goals from Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell gave Palace the 4 - 0 win over United who had just two shots on target.

The last time out for Crystal Palace was against Wolves. Olise opened the scoring and Mateta doubled the lead just two minutes later. Matheus Cunha did get Wolves on the scoresheet just after the hour but a goal from Eze wrapped up a 3 - 1 win for ten-man Palace, who had Ahamada sent off with ten minutes to go.
