Stoke comes from behind to beat Palace 2-1
Stoke scored twice in four minutes to come from behind and beat
Crystal Palace 2-1 on Saturday, leaving the promoted visitors
without a point after two games back in the Premier League.
Charlie Adam equalized in the 58th minute before Ryan Shawcross
grabbed the winner at Britannia Stadium to give Mark Hughes his
first win as Stoke manager after taking charge over the summer.
Shawcross had been partly at fault for Palace’s 31st-minute
opener as the England center back got muscled off the ball by
Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh, who cut inside and scored his
first goal since joining from Arsenal in the offseason and his
first in the Premier League since September 2011.
Stoke opened the season with a 1-0 loss at Liverpool, while
Palace lost 1-0 to Tottenham.
