Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth
English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 27 August, 2016,
Kick-off: 15:00 UK.
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
Crystal Palace host AFC Bournemouth at Selhurst Park on Saturday as the two teams hopes to get off the bottom of the table.
The Eagles lost to Tottenham last week made it 2 successive defeats, as they also lost to West Brom at home on the opening day. However they were confident on Tuesday night, they kicked Blackpool out of League Cup in 2-0 win. Alan Pardew now hope for a repeat of that score to get their first Premier League win of the season.
Eddie Howe’s men lost again last week to West Ham, after their 3-1 defeat to Red Devils in the opening day. The manager will be desperate to see his side improve after their bad start to the season. Bournemouth was unlucky in their last game, Antonio’s header gave Hammers the undeserved win as both teams were poor in performance. They now desperately need a point before the international break.

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth: Prediction
These two teams kicked of the season with losses, this have kept both teams low on confidence. It might interest you to know that Alan Pardew’s men have won only 2 of their last 23 Premier League matches. But i expect Benteke’s arrival to make a difference in the team.
Either of the two teams are capable of winning but i expect both teams to score in the game.
