Wilfried Zaha scored twice as Crystal Palace earned their first win of the season after coming from a goal down to beat Aston Villa in a lively encounter at Selhurst Park. 

Villa got off to the perfect start when Ollie Watkins fired low past Vicente Guaita to give the visitors a fifth-minute lead. 

But Palace restored parity on the counter less than three minutes later through the impressive Zaha, who shook off Ezri Konsa and beat Emiliano Martinez with a low shot. 

The hosts thought they had turned the game on its head when Jeffrey Schlupp struck after 26 minutes only for VAR to adjudge 

that Odsonne Edouard had strayed offside before finding the Ghana midfielder. 

However, VAR later awarded Palace a penalty after Marc Guehi's back-post header struck Lucas Digne's arm, 

with Zaha scoring on the rebound having seen his spot-kick saved by Martinez. 

Substitute Jean-Philippe Mateta wrapped up the win for Palace with a well-taken strike - only a minute after replacing Edouard.
