25th August 2017

As the Swans prepare for Saturday's fixture against Crystal Palace, we look back at some previous visits to Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace 1 Swansea City 2

Premier League: Selhurst Park – January 3, 2017

Angel Rangel scored a dramatic late winner as the Swans moved to within a point of safety thanks to a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.

The Swans, who had named Paul Clement as their new head coach earlier in the day, claimed a first away win since the opening day victory at Burnley.

It came thanks to Rangel's 89th-minute effort, with the Spaniard latching onto fellow sub Leroy Fer's chipped pass before beating the advancing Wayne Hennessey.

It was just reward for the Swans, who had taken a first half lead thanks to Alfie Mawson's first goal for the club.

Wilfried Zaha looked to have pinched a point for the hosts, but Rangel's late heroics ensured the Swans claimed a league double over Palace.

The win means the Swans moved onto 15 points and into joint 18th - one point off the Eagles.

Crystal Palace 0 Swansea City 2

Premier League: Selhurst Park – September 22, 2013

The Swans completed a superb week as they signed off with a comfortable 2-0 win at newly-promoted Crystal Palace to rise into the top half of the table.

Michu opened the scoring with the quickest goal of the Premier League season as he fired home with just 80 seconds on the clock.

The Swans went close to adding to their lead in the first half, Chico Flores hitting the post before seeing another effort chested off the line while Angel Rangel's powerful volley was tipped over by Julian Speroni.

But the Swans ensured they would be taking the points back to South West Wales in the 48th minute as debutant Alvaro Vazquez teed up Nathan Dyer, and the winger slotted home from close range.

The victory, a second consecutive away win in the league, completed a week which started with a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at the Liberty before that famous 3-0 victory over Valencia at the Mestalla in the Europa League.

Crystal Palace: Julian Speroni, Adrian Mariappa, Damien Delaney (Jose Campana, ht), Danny Gabbidon, Dean Moxey, Jason Puncheon, Mile Jedinak (capt), Adlene Guedioura, Barry Bannan (Jerome Thomas, 67), Cameron Jerome (Dwight Gayle, 67), Marouane Chamakh.

Crystal Palace 0 Swansea City 3

Championship: Selhurst Park – October 30, 2010

Third-place Swansea City extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to six thanks to goals from Scott Sinclair, Darren Pratley and Joe Allen.

Crystal Palace found themselves chasing the game almost from the off after conceding an early Sinclair goal which came from a quickly-taken free-kick after Edgar Davids had fouled Allen.

Despite enjoying more possession after conceding their first, Palace struggled to test de Vries, and the Swans doubled their lead when Pratley added the visitors' second with 19 minutes left on the clock.

And with 10 minutes to go, Allen made sure of the win by finishing off the move he started.

The Welsh midfielder found Nathan Dyer, who laid back off to him, before side-footing home.

The away victory and clean sheet at Selhurst Park meant Swansea had now gone seven hours and 35 minutes without conceding a goal in the league.

Crystal Palace: J Speroni, D Wright, P McCarthy, A Barrett, N Clyne, O Garvan (J Obika, 33), E Davids (A N'Diaye, 81), A Dorman, K Djilali (D Ambrose, 60), J Vaughan, W Zaha.

Subs not used: L Price, C Andrew, J Bennett, P Counago.

Swans: Dorus de Vries, Aaln Tate, Ashley Williams, Angel Rangel, Neil Taylor, Darren Pratley, Scott Sinclair, Andrea Orlandi (Scott Donnelly, 81), Nathan Dyer, Joe Allen, Marvin Emnes (Stephen Dobbie, 63).

Subs not used: Yves Makabu-Makalambay, Craig Beattie, David Cotterill, Daniel Alfei, Joe Walsh.
