Bournemouth appear to have turned a corner in recent weeks, and they will be looking to stretch their unbeaten record to four matches when they travel to Selhurst Park on Wednesday. Crystal Palace will be looking to end a run of two defeats in their last three.
Premier League Preview
There will be pressure on Crystal Palace this week, as the Eagles bid to end their three-game winless run in the Premier League. Palace remain clear of the relegation spots, and a victory on Wednesday could see them end the round within touching distance of the top half of the standings. The Eagles would have taken some confidence from their recent outing in the league, as they played out a draw against West Ham.
Things are looking up for Bournemouth at present, as they come into this fixture after going three without a defeat. That has seen the Cherries open up a six-point advantage over the bottom three places in the standings. Bournemouth were slightly unfortunate not to have landed maximum points in their previous match, as Aston Villa scored a late equaliser to rescue a point at the Vitality on Sunday.
Palace have a poor record in Premier League fixtures that are played on a Wednesday, as they have landed just a single victory from their last 15. Their only win was a success at Watford in February 2022. In home matches, they are winless in 14 matches at Selhurst Park in the Premier League in fixtures played on a Wednesday.
The Cherries also don’t have the best record in midweek matches, as they have landed just two wins from their previous 15 on a Wednesday. Both of their wins over that period were recorded against Chelsea, with the latest coming in January 2019.
Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth Head to Head
Palace have a very impressive record in this fixture, as they have won each of their last five against the Cherries in the Premier League. Meanwhile, they have kept clean sheets in three of the last four. However, the Eagles have never recorded six straight wins against the same opponent in the top-flight.
Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth
Bournemouth’s away record in London could be the key trend to consider this week. They have lost 12 of their 16 matches in the capital. Therefore, it could be a huge opportunity for Palace to bounce back to winning ways, and we could see them landing a 2-0 home win.
