By coincidence, our first London derby in the Premier League era was against Palace at the Lane on August 22, 1992 - Gordon Durie and Steve Sedgley on target in a 2-2 draw.
Our most recent derby was a 2-1 win at Fulham on December 4 as goals from Vlad Chiriches and a spectacular strike from Lewis Holtby saw us home.
In-between, our biggest derby win was 6-2 at at Wimbledon in May, 1998 and our heaviest loss 6-1 against Chelsea in December, 1997. The most goals in a game was a 5-4 reverse against Arsenal at the Lane in November, 2004 with the highest score draws 4-4 at the Emirates in November, 2008 and Chelsea at the Lane in March, 2008.
