The month kicked off with the news that on-loan winger Sullay Kaikai had been named PFA Fans' League One Player of the Month for October for his exploits at Shrewsbury Town which had seen him net four times in four appearances for the Shrews. Meanwhile his development teammate Jake Gray hoped to have the same success as he joined Hartlepool United in a move that would eventually last until the end of the season.
With another international break on the horizon, Palace headed to Liverpool and for the second time in 2015 clinched all three points at Anfield thanks to goals from Yannick Bolasie and hometown hero Scott Dann, who was delighted afterwards, saying: “I had a feeling that I was going to score today and thankfully it was the winner. I have always dreamed of scoring here so it’s a nice touch but I’ll probably get a bit of stick from my family and friends!"
Once again the squad split up to play for their countries with Mile Jedinak breaking the club's all-time international goalscoring record whereas Yohan Cabaye played against England at Wembley in an emotionally charged atmosphere following the terrorist attacks in Paris a few days earlier. There was also international recognition for Palace Ladies with Pam McRoberts becoming their first ever international as she played for Northern Ireland.
However the disruption affected the league form again as Sunderland stole a 1-0 win at Selhurst, but the Eagles bounced back in fine style by thrashing Newcastle United 5-1 later that week to record their biggest ever Premier League win. James McArthur and Bolasie scored twice and Wilfried Zaha also got on the scoresheet as Palace rounded off the month with a real highlight of their campaign.
It was one McArthur was particular pleased with, saying post-match: "It was a bit doom and gloom on Monday night so it was great to bounce back. After Newcastle scored I think we dominated the match, and we were excellent in the way we took the game to them. The performance today was one of the best I've been involved in."
When you wake up on a Sunday morning and remember you won 5-1 last night... "YES!!"https://t.co/PyM7JQb5a4— Crystal Palace F.C. (@CPFC) November 29, 2015
