Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 1st October 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
The Cherries managed to bounce back to a 4-0 loss to Burnley to clinch a win in their Carabao Cup in a thrilling match against Blackburn. They have been experiencing performance inconsistencies which they will strive to correct in this home matchup.
Bournemouth has had an excellent home record having not lost any match in the last six games. It is also important to mention that they have been able to score at least 2 goals in the all these six matches. This is a clear indication that they will not relent to clinch yet another win in this Weekend’s matchup. Dan Gosling and Charlie Daniels are the only injury concerns for the Cherries.
The Eagles will be motivated as they come into this matchup after a 0-3 win against West Bromwich in a Carabao Cup Fixture within the week. They have not lost any of their last 3 matches in all competitions and this may have a positive impact on their confidence as they travel to the Vitality Stadium.
They will aim at scooping a win in this matchup and climb the league standings with a tally of 10 points. Nonetheless, this game will not be an easy one for them since they are facing a more focused Bournemouth.
