Luka Milivojevic’s first-half penalty earned Crystal Palace a first win in four matches as they beat West Bromwich Albion to climb up to 11th.
West Brom dominated the opening 45 minutes at Selhurst Park, with their best chance falling to Okay Yokuslu, who shot over in the area.
On 37 minutes, Milivojevic converted from the spot for his first goal of the season after a VAR review found Darnell Furlong had handled Wilfried Zaha’s cross.
Sam Johnstone denied Palace a second with a brilliant save from Christian Benteke’s fierce strike.
West Brom’s first shot on target came in the 72nd minute, when Mbaye Diagne’s header was saved by Guaita.
They were unable to find an equaliser, leaving them in 19th on 18 points, eight from safety.
Palace have 37 points, leaving them 11 above the bottom three.
