Pardew's side face a crucial game against Bournemouth tomorrow, and nothing less than a win will do, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of avoiding the drop this season. It's hard. This was particularly harsh, we didn't make many errors in the whole game but unfortunately we've lost.

Bournemouth came from behind to beat West Bromwich Albion and all but secure a fourth successive season in the Premier League. "Trust me, we don't want to do it that way, but at this point of the season I think I'll take any way if it means us getting three points".

While Palace remain hopeful of retaining their lucrative top-flight berth, bottom-of-the-table West Brom appear certain to slide into the Championship.

The Baggies looked to heading for their first Premier League victory in eight matches when Jay Rodriguez put them in front four minutes after the break.

Albion were wilting and Junior Stanislas gave Bournemouth their first win in five league games with an 89th-minute free-kick.

West Bromwich Albion's hopes of Premier League survival have taken a major blow courtesy of a late 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this afternoon.

It has won just one of their 17 league matches under Alan Pardew and lie nine points from safety with only seven matches left.

"Tough for us today [and] tough for my players in particular because in terms of the game plan and delivering it, I couldn't really ask for any more", Pardew said. "It is really hard on our players". They had held a deserved lead until the 77th minute but, just as the words "great escape" were being hopefully murmured in the away end, Bournemouth struck twice and also cleared one West Brom shot off the line to clinch all three points in a dramatic finale.

Second-bottom Stoke City's relegation fears grew as they went down 2-1 at home to Everton after having Charlie Adam sent off in the first half for a foul on Wayne Rooney.

When Dominic Calvert-Lewin tried to bundle in, Konstantinos Stafylidis could only hack clear to Tosun, who smashed in from close range.
