EPL: Crystal Palace, Newcastle share spoils

Slimani has made only two Premier League starts this season scoring once and will have ten games in which to influence Newcastle’s campaign

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez has said that it is too early to judge whether Ciaran Clark has suffered any major damage in an injury suffered in the 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Palace have moved into 14th place in the standings, while Newcastle now sit a point above the relegation zone after a fourth league game without a win.

They fell behind in the 22nd minute with some bad marking by the Eagles defence as they allowed Kenedy's corner to bounce through a crowd of players and an unmarked Mohamed Diame converted at the far post. Second half, they came back at us and we did well to hold on to a draw.

Darlow was preferred in goal to loan signing Martin Dubravka, who was named on the bench.

Syria is making new chemical weapons despite 2013 deal
Unconfirmed intel has recently reported to the Pentagon that Syrian forces have weaponized chlorine and sarin gas. He says the U.S.is "even more concerned" about the possible use of the nerve agent sarin.

Wayne Hennessey then pulled out a terrific double save to keep out Kenedy's strike with his chest and he re-positioned himself to push away Ayoze Perez's shot.

An attack from Kenedy then led to the corner from which they scored the opening goal.

Roy Hodgson's side had the better chances of an open encounter in the capital, but found themselves trailing to Mohamed Diame's opener midway through the first half.

Three minutes from halftime Benteke somehow deflected the ball wide off goal from close range after Darlow deflected Zaha's shot onto his path.

More civilian causalities due to Turkish operation in Afrin
Seven Turkish soldiers were martyred on Saturday during Operation Olive Branch, according to a Turkish General Staff statement. On Friday, at least two people were reportedly killed and 19 injured in attacks on Turkish towns near the border with Syria.

Milivojevic showed a lack of conviction when shooting towards the bottom right corner but though Darlow guessed right and got a hand to the ball, he was unable to prevent it sailing behind him and into the back of the net.

Newcastle manager Benitez questioned the decision to award Palace a spot-kick.

"We then changed everything because obviously they had more confidence and they were pushing, we knew that they have very good players up front".
