Zaha netted five minutes into injury time to salvage a point for Palace, which twice surrendered the lead in new manager Neil Warnock's first game in charge.

Mike Williamson thought he had given Newcastle its first win of the season with his first goal for five years in the 88th minute, after Daryl Janmaat and Rolando Aarons had cancelled out earlier efforts from Dwight Gayle and Jason Puncheon.

Gayle scored after just 30 seconds, giving Warnock a perfect start to his second reign at the club after replacing Tony Pulis, who left just before the start of the season.
