Palace win in pictures
Mikel Merino's first goal for Newcastle United gave the Magpies victory against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The silky Spaniard - whose loan move from Borussia Dortmund was made permanent eight days earlier - headed home from Matt Ritchie's corner to break the Eagles' resistance at St. James' Park.
It looked as if Rafa Benítez's side were heading for a third Premier League draw in a row, but they refused to settle for anything less than three points.
And club photographer Serena Taylor was there to bring nufc.co.uk another great gallery.
