By James Agberebi:

Crystal Palace defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-0 to finish third at the Premier League Asia Trophy in Hong Kong on Saturday.

Two first half goals from Luka Milivojevic and Bakary Sako sealed the win for Palace.

Milivojevic gave Palace the lead in the 12th minute after curling a freekick from 25 yards over the wall and into the corner.

In the 22nd minute, former Manchester United defender Johnny Evans, who is captain of West Brom, was forced off with injury and was replaced by Claudio Yacob.

Palace doubled their lead in the 43rd minute through Bakary Sako whose long range strike after a solo run was deflected before ending in the back of the net.

The final of the Premier League Asia Trophy is between Liverpool and Leicester City.
