Premier League: Middlesbrough 1-2 Crystal Palace | Benteke, Zaha enrich Palace with valuable win

Goals from Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha sealed Crystal Palace’s first victory of the Premier League season as they won 2-1 at Middlesbrough.

On his first Premier League appearance since joining the Eagles, Benteke found the net with a towering header from Zaha’s cross on 16 minutes.

Daniel Ayala put Boro on level terms with another brilliant header, this time finding the top corner after meeting Stewart Downing’s centre.

But Zaha had the final word in the first minute of the second half, slotting past Victor Valdes after dispossessing George Friend to inflict the hosts’ first defeat since their return to the top flight.
