West Brom finishes last with 2-0 loss to 11th-place Palace
LONDON (AP) — West Bromwich Albion’s eight-year stay in the Premier League ended with a 2-0 loss at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Despite West Brom’s recent improvement under caretaker manager Darren Moore, goals from Wilfried Zaha and Patrick van Aanholt meant the central England club finished bottom of the standings.
Zaha again impressed for the hosts and was rewarded with his ninth goal of the season in the second half, ensuring that what could have been a damaging season for his team finished positively.
The in-form van Aanholt also scored his third goal in three games, securing all three points in a further show of the remarkable job Roy Hodgson has done in leading Palace to an 11th-place finish.
Palace lost its opening seven games.
