Stalemate edges Watford and Palace closer to survival

Christian Benteke of Crystal Palace during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Watford at Selhurst Park

Javi Gracia's team dominated the first half and saw an early Stefano Okaka header bounce back off the crossbar, while Craig Cathcart also came close.

Palace move up to 15th, six points ahead of 18th-placed Southampton.

Okaka - making his first start since December - nearly got the hosts off to a flying start, but his header from Troy Deeney's cross crashed back off the crossbar in just the fourth minute.

Eagles goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey produced a good save as Joel Ward inadvertently diverted Troy Deeney's cross towards his own goal. Tomkins again was at the heart of it as his header came off the inside of the right post and was cleared away from danger by Deeney. Luka Milivojevic's free-kick cannoned off the bar after he was afforded the chance when Wilfred Zaha was fouled on the edge of the box by Adrian Mariappa.

The King of Swaziland has changed his country's name to eSwatini
But over the course of his 32-year rule, he has mostly gained worldwide attention for how he has spent the royal treasury. In addition to the symbolic value, the king also has more practical motivations for changing the country's name.

Watford, which is without a win in five games, is three points better off in 12th place.

They are six points above the relegation zone after today's 0-0 draw at Watford and a point below the Seagulls, who have a game in hand.

Palace wrap up the season with games against Leicester City, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion.
