1. Martin Dubravka - 7
Had little to do in the first-half and was rarely tested in the second despite Palace’s improvement. Photo: LINDSEY PARNABY
2. Emil Krafth - 8
Had a very good first-half up against Zaha but the Ivorian grew into the game following their formation change - Krafth dealt with that with little issue however. Very solid again. Photo: George Wood
3. Fabian Schar - 7
An uncharacteristic mistake early on went unpunished. Marshalled the defence well alongside Burn once again. Photo: George Wood
4. Dan Burn - 7
Another solid performance from Burn was rewarded with another clean sheet. Dealt with everything thrown his way. Photo: Stu Forster
