Crystal Palace 2-0 Huddersfield Town
Huddersfield Town have been relegated after a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace with Luka Milivojevic and Patrick van Aanholt on target.
The Terriers will be playing their football in the Championship next season after their defeat, coupled with wins for Burnley and Southampton, ensured they are now mathematically down.
Manager Jan Siewert made three changes to the Huddersfield starting XI that lost 4-3 to West Ham last time out, with Christopher Schindler and Jonathan Hogg coming into the side in place of Jon Gorenc Stankovic and Aaron Rowe.
Ben Hamer replaced Jonas Lossl in goal in a clear sign Siewert is already thinking ahead to next season, as the latter's contract is due to expire in the summer and he seems set to depart.
The first chance of the afternoon fell to the visitors as Aaron Mooy tried his luck from range, but his ambitious effort was off target.
Van Aanholt created the first chance for Palace as he picked out Michy Batshuayi, who was denied by a block from Chris Lowe. The left-back again opened up the Huddersfield defence soon after as he found Jeffrey Schlupp, who shot wide.
Huddersfield's best chance of the first half came on 26 minutes when Mooy found Lowe, but Vicente Guaita denied his headed effort with a one-handed save.
The game remained 0-0 at the break and Palace had to wait until the 77th minute before they made a breakthrough.
Juninho Bacuna brought down Wilfried Zaha inside the area and Milivojevic scored the resulting spot-kick as he sent Hamer the wrong way.
Van Aanholt capped a fine individual performance with Palace's second goal after good work from Wilfried Zaha to end any hopes of a Huddersfield fightback.
Palace are now eight points clear of the bottom three, while Huddersfield's two-year stay in the Premier League has come to an end.
