Alan Pardew's Crystal Palace reign in numbers

Crystal Palace have sacked manager Alan Pardew after almost two years at the helm.

Press Association Sport takes a look at some of the numbers from the 55-year-old's time in charge at Selhurst Park.

1 - clean sheet kept by Crystal Palace in the Premier League so far in 2016/17.

4 - league wins overseen by Pardew in Palace's first 17 games this season.

8 - losses in Crystal Palace's last 10 Premier League matches, collecting just four points.

32 - goals conceded by the Eagles in the Premier League this term; only Hull (36) and Swansea (37) have a leakier defence.

87 - matches Pardew managed Palace in after taking over in January 2015, winning 35 and losing 39.

170 - the number of times Pardew represented Crystal Palace as a player from 1987-1991.

50,000,000 - approximate spending by Pardew, in pounds, to bring Christian Benteke, James Tomkins and Andros Townsend to Selhurst Park last summer.
