Until the final minutes, the affair saw two well-matched sides test one another consistently, with Palace arguably enjoying the better chances.
Both goalkeepers, especially United's Karl Darlow, made several noteworthy saves and the two teams will have been keen to secure victory.
Opportunities fell to Jeffrey Schlupp, Eberechi Eze, Christian Benteke and others, but the Eagles could not break the deadlock with promising chances.
Ultimately, against the run of play, that victory fell to Newcastle, who nullified Palace's late dominance to ensure victory.
