Luka Milivojevic and Bakary Sako score in 2-0 win over West Brom in Hong Kong

Crystal Palace beat West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League Asia Trophy third-place play-off thanks to goals from Luka Milivojevic and Bakary Sako

The Eagles won 2-0 at the Hong Kong Stadium to bounce back from their semi-final loss to Liverpool at the same venue on Wednesday.

Milivojevic opened the scoring with a 25-yard free-kick, won by the pace and trickery of the lively Wilfried Zaha

Frank de Boer's side doubled their lead on 43 minutes when Sako's shot from distance took two deflections to beat Ben Foster

West Brom, who lost their tournament opener on penalties to Leicester City, rallied in the second half.

Ahmed Hegazi and Matt Phillips both went close but Palace held firm to finish third in the four-team competition.

Liverpool and Leicester City kick off the final at 1.30pm BST.
