Palace struggling to get it all together

Both the these teams pieced together some decent results late on last season to ensure their survival in the top flight and there was a feeling that the Cherries in particular might struggle to get over the line this time.

However, they have shown some decent form in the last couple of weeks and there is every chance that they will get another three valuable points when they travel to Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

While the Eagles would have settled for a point at West Ham on Sunday, there has not been a lot on their own patch for Roy Hodgson’s side to cheer about lately.

Having beaten Wolves in September, they posted uninspiring goalless draws at home to Fulham and Nottingham Forest when their fans probably expected more and then conceded a total of five goals in defeats to Tottenham and Everton.

Their goal was gifted to them by the Hammers defence at the London Stadium at the weekend and Hodgson was full of praise for their opponents when they won 2-0 at struggling Burnley, the only win the Eagles have posted in their last six, so they look vulnerable.

Cherries should be full of confidence

Bournemouth, meanwhile, have got their act together and while their 3-1 win at Sheffield United might not be that huge, a home win over Newcastle and a draw against Aston Villa should have given them a lift.

Before the Bramall Lane win, they had taken just one point from five away matches, so manager Andoni Iraola will hope they are about to turn the corner on their travels.

That should ensure they have a positive approach and they look a decent shout to claim another victory, with a 2-1 win out correct-score selection as both teams have scored in Palace’s last three league matches.

Solanke looks the chief visiting threat

A goalscorer to keep an eye on is Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke.

He scored his seventh goal of the season in the 2-2 draw with Villa on Sunday and that meant he has eclipsed the number of successful strikes he posted during the whole of last season.

The former Liverpool striker has made the centre-forward position his own under Iraola and has rewarded the Spaniard for the faith he has shown in him.

He also scored both goals in the 2-0 win over Newcastle so his confidence should be sky-high.
