Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace Preview

Monday evening’s Premier League action comes from the Vitality Stadium where Bournemouth take on Crystal Palace.

The Cherries were thumped at Burnley last time out in the league though they beat Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Cup to progress to the last sixteen of the competition a few days later.

They sit in ninth place following the weekend’s other results and will move level on points with sixth place Watford with a win here, ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road next weekend.

Diego Rico and Dan Gosling will both be assessed ahead of kick-off as they nurse respective hamstring and calf issues while the game is likely to come soon for Charlie Daniels, and Kyle Taylor remains out.

Callum Wilson is favourite to open the scoring at 6.0 (5/1) with several firms with Ryan Fraser a 9.5 (17/2) chance with Bet Victor.

The home win is widely available at 3.3 (23/10), with the visitors as highly priced as the 3.4 (12/5) on offer from Betfred. The draw can be backed at 3.6 (13/5) with Betfair.

Roy Hodgson’s men have taken four points from the last six available to them in the league while they also triumphed in their League Cup Third Round tie, beating Championship promotion hopefuls West Bromwich Albion by three goals to nil.

Christian Benteke will again miss out with the knee problem that has seen him miss the last three games with Jairo Riedewald also missing though Wilfried Zaha should feature despite a minor back problem.

Zaha is 6.5 (11/2) to get the first goal of the game with Luka Milivojevic an 18.0 (17/1) shot with Bet Victor.

Both of last season’s meetings between the sides finished 2-2 so you may be tempted to back both teams to score this time around at 1.67 (4/6) with Betfair.

Alternatively, with the Eagles winning four of their past five league away games in all competitions without conceding, you may fancy a win for the London side to nil, which can be backed at a price of 6.5 (11/2) with Bet Victor.
