Crystal Palace vs AFC Bournemouth Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Crystal Palace welcome Bournemouth to Selhurst Park on 09/12/17 in a bottom-half clash in the Premier League. Palace drew 0-0 against West Brom last time out, with Bournemouth also being involved in a draw last weekend, drawing 1-1 against south coast rivals Southampton. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Palace have looked a completely different side in recent weeks, now appearing to be a well-drilled side. Bournemouth have been somewhat unpredictable of late and I’m expecting the home side to pick up three points here.

Crystal Palace win - 19/20
Wilfried Zaha to score anytime - 7/4

Crystal Palace Preview

If Roy Hodgson can say he’s achieved anything from his time at Crystal Palace, it must come in the form of the newly-found resiliency this side has found, which was demonstrated once again during their 0-0 draw away to West Bromwich Albion. A game of few chances was perhaps expected given the troubling nature of both side’s positions in the table, with the result still leaving Crystal Palace in the bottom three. However, they are now just three points adrift of West Brom in the table, having secured back-to-back 0-0 draws away from home last week, also holding Brighton to a stalemate in midweek. Hodgson has also guided his side to four games unbeaten at home, winning two and drawing two and will now be looking to secure back-to-back wins for the first time this season and the first time in all since April. Having failed to score in their last two games, Palace may now look to adopt a more open style of play this time around, after scoring twice in each of their last three games at Selhurst Park. Palace will need to win their home games in order to stay up this season and will be targeting a solid points return from their next two, with Watford also to come on Tuesday.

Crystal Palace Team News

Palace could be without as many as seven first-team players, with Wayne Hennessey, James Tomkins, Scott Dann, Damien Delaney, Yohan Cabaye, Chung-Yong Lee and Connor Wickham.

AFC Bournemouth Preview

It was very much a game of two halves last weekend as Bournemouth and Southampton played out a competitive draw at the Vitality Stadium. The Cherries enjoyed the better of the first 45 minutes, playing the better football and creating more chances and were rewarded when Ryan Fraser scored the opening goal three minutes before the break. Despite that, the Cherries were unable to sustain their level of performance, with Southampton drawing level when Nathan Redmond produced a low cross for Charlie Austin to drill in the equaliser. Neither side could find a winner as the result saw Bournemouth drop to 14th in the table and left them with just a point from their last two home games against Southampton and Burnley. Now facing back-to-back away games, this is a match Bournemouth will feel as if they have to take points from, with Manchester United away to come on Wednesday night. In fact, their visit to Old Trafford begins a tremendously tough run of games as they face Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City after facing Jose Mourinho’s men midweek.
