Palace staff were caught by surprise at the speed at which Pulis went from preparing his team for the trip to the Emirates Stadium to cutting ties with the club. He and co-chairman Steve Parish held talks to discuss transfer issues on Thursday afternoon. Pulis had reportedly been left frustrated by the club failing to push through deals for various players he targeted to strengthen the Palace squad. It was not immediately known whether Pulis had resigned, been sacked, or left by mutual consent. Bookmakers had earlier drastically cut the odds on Pulis being the next Premier League manager to leave his post, with some closing the market due to heavy betting on the Welshman, who had gone from being a 40/1 shot on Wednesday to an odds-on favourite. Pulis inherited a team in turmoil last autumn, but such was the job he did, guiding the team to an 11th-place finish, that he was named the League Managers Association’s Premier League manager of the year in May. The exit of Pulis came on the day Palace clinched the signing of Liverpool defender Martin Kelly on a three-year contract. The 24-year-old made his Reds debut back in 2009 but found first-team opportunities limited, with a serious knee injury also ruling him out for a year. Kelly, capped once by England in a 2012 friendly against Norway, became Pulis’ fourth signing of the summer following the acquisitions of Chris Kettings, Fraizer Campbell and Brede Hangeland. Unaware of what was about to happen, Kelly told Palace’s websitie: “I’m looking forward to playing under Tony and playing regular football again.” Less than 48 hours before Palace begin their Barclays Premier League campaign at Arsenal, Pulis, whose appointment last November triggered a remarkable run from likely relegation to comfortable survival, departed the Selhurst Park club. Press Association Sport understands Palace will issue a statement on Friday to address the resignation before holding an afternoon press conference. Manager Tony Pulis has left his position at Crystal Palace in a sudden and unexpected move on Thursday. Press Association
Andy Murray Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski are set to play in the deciding doubles later on Wednesday.Andy Murray had survived a scare to put Great Britain ahead when he beat Griekspoor 6-7 (7-9) 6-4 7-6 (7-5) .“I fought extremely hard but he dictated a lot of the points,” the Scot, 32, said.Britain, who won the 2015 Davis Cup in the previous format, have been drawn against the Netherlands and Kazakhstan – who they face on Thursday – in the group stage.Eighteen nations are contesting a football-style knockout tournament for the first time to determine the Davis Cup champions, with the winners of the six groups and the two best-placed runners-up reaching the quarter-finals.Former world number one Murray has not played a competitive match since winning the European Open title in Antwerp more than a month ago and he appeared to struggle physically at times against Griekspoor.Murray revealed before the tournament he was at the heaviest weight of his career as he took a couple of weeks off to spend with his newborn son, joking with the media in Spain on Tuesday that he still needed to shift “the last couple of kilos”.While that may not have been the contributing factor for a sluggish first-set performance, there was a lack of match sharpness as he found the big-hitting Griekspoor hard to handle.The 23-year-old Dutchman may have only won two ATP Tour matches in his career but they came against three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka and Russian world number 17 Karen Khachanov, illustrating his capability of causing problems for the very best.Eleven aces and some impressive first-serve statistics in the mid-80s rocked Murray in the first set, before the Scot showed signs of improvement in the second – although far from his best – to level the match.Twice Murray looked beaten in the final set, trailing 4-1 and again by the same scoreline in the tie-break, only to dig deep into his reserves to fight back.A blocked forehand from deep behind the baseline, with Murray almost standing next to the line judge, was almost beyond belief and helped him level at 4-4 to ultimately swing the match back in his favour.Although Griekspoor won the next point, the momentum remained with Murray who sealed a memorable win when the Dutchman sliced into the net.Murray pointed to his heart as he celebrated, the gesture signifying the resilience which has helped him win the sport’s biggest prizes and resurrect a career which even he thought was over after “life-changing” hip surgery in January.“I fought, put every ball in and had to find a way to win. That’s what I did,” Murray said.Barcelona footballer Gerard Pique has overseen the transformation of the 119-year-old competition into the season-ending finals, which has been met with fierce criticism from some and doubts about the atmosphere such a format would create.While Spain’s opening match on Tuesday night was unsurprisingly watched by a partisan and full crowd at the Caja Magica, some matches have struggled to attend spectators.Britain’s opening tie against the Dutch was not expected to be one and so it proved as about 1,000 Union Jack-clad fans created a boisterous atmosphere on a 2,500-capacity third show court which was about three-quarters full by most estimates.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Great Britain’s opening tie at the Davis Cup finals will go down to a pivotal doubles rubber after Dan Evans lost to Dutchman Robin Haase in Madrid.British number one Evans looked on course for a one-sided win before Haase fought back to win 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 6-4.Haase levelled the tie after Andy Murray said he “didn’t deserve” to beat world number 179 Tallon Griekspoor.

Burnley have no fresh injury concerns; David Nugent is a major doubt for the visitors. Crystal Palace v Hull City Hull desperately need the points against a Palace side already assured of survival.Lee Chung-yong could feature for Crystal Palace, but Mo Diame appears unlikely to make his return to the Hull starting line-up. Newcastle v SwanseaIt’s too late for the Swans to find a way into the Euro spots, but it’s not too late for Newcastle to go down… Siem de Jong returns to the hosts squad for the first time since August after recovering from a collapsed lung.

Peter Odemwingie is likely to be among the substitutes – the Stoke striker has not been involved with the first team on a match day since August.West Brom v LiverpoolSteven Gerrard won’t finish his storied Liverpool career by lifting the FA Cup – but a top-four finish is still possible. Andre Wisdom is ineligible to play against his parent club, who are missing Daniel Sturridge.Manchester City v Aston Villa (16:30)Tim Sherwood’s boys are on top of the world, but the champions will look to make an example of them to reclaim second place. City welcome back David Silva; Gabby Agbonlahor could return for Villa. SUNDAYEverton v Manchester United (12:30)Louis van Gaal remains ravaged by injuries while Everton could really do with a scalp to end a miserable season on a high. Steven Pienaar is unlikely to feature for the hosts, while United are without defenders Phil Jones (ankle), Marcos Rojo (adductor) and Rafael (rib).Arsenal v Chelsea (15:00)If Chelsea win, they’re pretty much the champions. But a first Arsene Wenger triumph over Jose Mourinho could lead to a dramatic finish. Per Mertesacker is doubtful for Arsenal, with Gabriel Paulista ready to deputise. Chelsea will make a late call on Diego Costa’s fitness. –Follow Gary Al-Smith on Twitter: @garyalsmith
