    Luton Town picked up their first-ever home Premier League win as they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at a raucous Kenilworth Road.

    Second-half goals from Teden Mengi and Jacob Brown, either side of a superb Michael Olise strike, move 17th-placed Luton four points clear of the bottom three.

    How the match unfolded

    Palace started the first half on the front foot, with Olise, making his first start this season, curling the ball just past a post in the first minute.

    Luton goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski had a busy first 45 minutes. He made a comfortable stop in the sixth minute to deny Odsonne Edouard before making a brilliant double save to keep out Eberechi Eze and Jeffrey Schlupp midway through the half.

    Roy Hodgson was dealt two huge blows within the first five minutes of the second half as Eze was forced off with an injury before Cheick Doucoure had to be taken off on a stretcher.

    Edouard thought he had got the opener in the 67th minute after he scored from Olise's terrific long pass over the top of the Luton defence, but following a VAR review, the goal was overturned after the striker was adjudged to have controlled the ball with his hand.

    Luton started to take the game to the visitors and went in front in the 72nd minute through Mengi's first Premier League goal. A corner fell kindly to the defender at the back post and he took a touch before firing into the far corner.

    But the lead only lasted two minutes as Olise advanced from the halfway line, cut inside on to his left foot and curled impressively beyond Kaminski to equalise. 

    Luton restored their lead with seven minutes remaining as substitute Brown tapped in at full stretch from Chiedozie Ogbene's fantastic low cross for his maiden Premier League goal.

    Jefferson Lerma headed against a post in the 13th minute of stoppage time as Luton held on for a historic win.

    A fourth defeat in five matches leaves Palace in 13th on 15 points.
