Result: West Brom end PL tenure with defeat
West Bromwich Albion's last Premier League game before dropping to the Championship ends on a sour note with a 2-0 defeat away at Crystal Palace.

West Bromwich Albion's last Premier League game before dropping to the Championship has ended in a 2-0 defeat away at Crystal Palace.

The Eagles dominated the encounter at Selhurst Park but had to wait until midway through the second half before Albion's resistance gave way.

Wilfried Zaha broke the deadlock on 70 minutes when he tapped home from close range following a cutback from Patrick van Aanholt on the left byline.

The provided then turned goalscorer eight minutes later, collecting Yohan Cabaye's delivery and rounding WBA goalkeeper Ben Foster before slotting into the net.

Although the ball was cleared from beyond the line, referee Jonathan Moss made use of video technology to confirm that the goal indeed stood.

Nine minutes from time, Pape Souare came on for his first appearance since a car crash in 2016 in which he broke his leg and jaw and put his career under threat.

The final whistle saw Palace finish 11th in the table, a remarkable turnaround considering that the Eagles were bottom, pointless and goalless after seven games.

West Brom, meanwhile, finish bottom of the standings with 31 points from 38 games and will spend the summer preparing for life in the second tier.

CRYSTAL PALACE (4-4-2): Hennessey; Wan Bissaka, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt; McArthur (Benteke 68'), Cabaye, Milivojevic, Loftus-Cheek; Townsend, Zaha

WEST BROMWICH ALBION (4-4-1-1): Foster; Nyom, Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs; Rodriguez (Sturridge 73'), Livermore, Brunt, McClean; Krychowiak (Chadli 61'), Rondon (Robson-Kanu 72')
