Eddie Izzard and Crystal Palace players react on Twitter to Norwich win

Eddie Izzard

Palace finally registered a Premier League win in 2016 on Saturday - against Norwich City.

Eddie Izzard was delighted with Crystal Palace's win over Norwich on Saturday afternoon.

And so were Palace heroes Yannick Bolasie, Jason Puncheon and Yohan Cabaye, who all joined Izzard in taking to Twitter to celebrate.

Getting the Premier League monkey off their backs will certainly help with an FA Cup semi-final coming against Watford later this month.

It's astounding Crystal Palace hadn't won in the league in 2016 until this late but it's finally over with now and Alan Pardew's men are virtually safe going into next season.

Now that leaves the south London side with a shot at cup glory. It won't be easy, of course. Watford will pose a huge challenge - and so will the finalists if they manage to beat the Hornets.

But how much better is Palace's season looking now? Premier League safety and a strong cup run is what most fans would have absolutely loved at the start of the campaign...
