EPL Match Report: Stoke City beat Crystal Palace 2-1

Charlie Adam and Ryan Shawcross were both on target as Stoke City came from behind to see off Premier League new boys Crystal Palace 2-1 on Saturday.

Both the sides came to this match on the back of 1-0 defeats in their respective opening matches last weekend and were looking to find their first points to set their new campaign rolling.

The first half an hour saw both teams battle it out for a midfield supremacy, and chances on goal were few and far in between.

However, on 31st minute new Palace signing Marouane Chamakh dispossessed Shawcross, took the ball round Robert Huth and slotted past Asmir Begovic in the Stoke goal to give the visitors the surprise lead.

In the second half, though, Potters looked a different outfit and got the ball rolling on 58th minute when Adam found the corner of the net from inside the area to level matters at the Britannia Stadium.

Just four minutes later hosts completed a stunning second half comeback when a cross from the right was met by Shawcross who calmly swept the ball home.

Despite some late pressure from Palace and the introduction of Kevin Phillips, Stoke held on for their first points of Mark Hughes.
