Crystal Palace ended their season on a high with a 2-0 home victory over already-relegated West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, which left the visitors bottom of the Premier League.

Wilfried Zaha met Patrick van Aanholt's cross on the volley from close range to break the deadlock in the 70th minute after a bursting run through the middle from Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Dutch left back Van Aanholt then completed a marvellous team move by rounding goalkeeper Ben Foster to score the second eight minutes later, inflicting a first defeat on West Brom in six games since caretaker manager Darren Moore took over at the start of April.

Palace finished the season 11th in the standings on 44 points, missing out on 10th by two goals as Newcastle United beat Chelsea 3-0. West Brom sank to the bottom of the table due to Stoke City's 2-1 win at Swansea City, ending the campaign on 31 points.
