3 June 2016

The month kicked off with the squad gathering at Selhurst Park for the annual photocall as Alan Pardew took his place in his first one as Palace manager.

A couple of days later they returned to SE25 as former boss Tony Pulis returned with his West Bromwich Albion outfit but goals from Yohan Cabaye and Yannick Bolasie ensured a 2-0 win was recorded as Palace climbed into the top three in the Premier League, with the winger post-match saying: “I’ve seen a couple of messages on Twitter saying that I hadn’t scored here in two years so I thought ‘you know what, I have to score’."

Following that a number of the squad met up once again with their countries and it would be one to remember for Palace's trio of Welshman as they helped Chris Coleman's side qualify for Euro 2016, and after rounding off their campaign at home to Andorra, Wayne Hennessey said: "It was an amazing atmosphere - it's like the Palace end down that one side!"

However the international break came at the wrong time for the high-flying Eagles and their momentum stalled as they lost 3-1 at home to West Ham United with Dwight Gayle seeing red for the hosts, and then came a 1-0 defeat to Leicester City as Jamie Vardy continued his march towards the Premier League record for the most consecutive games scored in.

Interest in the Capital One Cup also ended as Manchester City ran rampant at the Etihad Stadium as they cruised to a 5-1 victory, but needing to get back on track Palace held their neighbours Manchester United to goalless draw at Selhurst Park, with Pardew stating afterwards: "It was a game we should have won, but [we] much more like us. It was a point that I'll gladly accept."
