Roy Hodgson's first game as Crystal Palace manager ended in a 1-0 defeat by Southampton as they set two unwanted records at Selhurst Park.
Their latest loss, via a sixth-minute finish from Steven Davis, means they have become the first ever top-flight team to lose each of their opening five league fixtures without scoring a goal.
That their pursuit of a first league goal of the season is ongoing also takes them past Newcastle's wait of 438 minutes, that dates back to 2005-06.

Mario Lemina: A summer signing from Juventus, the midfielder showed his quality at Selhurst Park. Lemina played a part in June's Champions League final and shone for Saints, breaking up the play impressively and showing his passing range. A dominant presence.
VIEW FROM THE STANDS
After giving Hodgson such a warm welcome and backing even when behind at the break, some of the Palace faithful lost their cool when Ruben Loftus-Cheek's number was held up.
A smattering of boos welcomed the decision to replace their best player with Bakary Sako, while Southampton fans sung the name of Virgil van Dijk shortly after the want-away defender came off the bench for his first appearance since January.
