Match preview

After both endured pretty miserable returns to action this week, will either claim a much-needed victory by the South Coast?

On Boxing Day, Crystal Palace were hammered 3-0 by Fulham at Selhurst Park, with both Tyrick Mitchell and James Tomkins sent off in that heavy defeat.

Having lost at Nottingham Forest just before the World Cup, that’s back-to-back defeats for Patrick Vieira’s team, who’d won four out of six beforehand.

The Eagles kick off in 11th, so it isn’t time to worry just yet.

AFC Bournemouth meantime were easily swatted aside by Chelsea on Tuesday, with the two goals at Stamford Bridge coming in the space of eight minutes.

Gary O’Neil’s side have now lost five of their last six, only beating Everton in this period, so are just three points clear of the relegation zone.

Will there be a winner at Dean Court?

Bournemouth team news

Bournemouth are without Neto and Lloyd Kelly due to injury as well as David Brooks who’s recovering after being given the all clear of Hodgkin lymphoma.

In the absence of Neto, Mark Travers will continue in goal.

Chris Mepham will return at the heart of defence, after serving his one-match ban on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, Gary O’Neil went for a back five at Stamford Bridge, but is likely to be bolder this time.

Ryan Christie could be the biggest beneficiary of this change in shape.


Predicted XI (4-4-2): Travers; Smith, Senesi, Mepham, Zemura; Lerma, Cook, Billing, Christie; Moore, Solanke.


Crystal Palace team news

Patrick Vieira is short of defenders: Tyrick Mitchell and James Tomkins are suspended, while Nathan Ferguson is injured.

In better news, Marc Guéhi is back, after serving his one-match suspension on Boxing Day, so will rekindle his partnership alongside Joachim Andersen.

Jeffrey Schlupp is likely to cover Mitchell’s absence at left-back, so Eberechi Eze could be back in midfield, with Odsonne Édouard returning to lead the line.


Predicted XI (4-3-3): Guiata; Clyne, Andersen, Guéhi, Schlupp; Doucouré, Eze, Olise, Ayew, Zaha; Édouard.
