After winning three of their last five games Bournemouth are now just three points behind Crystal Palace, who they visit on Wednesday looking to bridge that gap.

The Eagles have been in poor form recently, losing four of their last six matches, but a 1-1 draw away to West Ham at the weekend was a step in the right direction.

Here we pick out the best bets for this Premier League clash.

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth tips

  • Bournemouth @ 9/4
  • Dominic Solanke to score at anytime @ 21/10

Team news

Crystal Palace will be without Cheick Doucouré, Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, Rob Holding, Dean Henderson and Eberechi Eze for this clash while Jeffrey Schlupp is a doubt.

Tyler Adams, Max Aarons, Alex Scott, Lloyd Kelly, Emiliano Marcondes, Ryan Fredericks and Darren Randolph are all expected to miss this clash as long-term absentees.

Match odds

Crystal Palace can be backed at 5/4 for the victory, while Bournemouth are 9/4 outsiders and the draw is available at 23/10.

Bournemouth @ 9/4

Things can take time to click under a new coach in a new league but they seem to have for Andoni Iraola and Bournemouth in recent weeks.

The Cherries beat Newcastle 2-0 before getting the better of Sheffield United 3-1 and following that with a 2-2 draw against high-flying Aston Villa.

All in all, Iraola’s men have won three of their last five games in the league and their only defeat in that run has come against Manchester City.

By contrast Crystal Palace have been struggling, losing four of their last six including defeats to Everton and Luton.

Injury issues have begun to bite with some of their top players such as Eberechi Eze, Dean Henderson and Cheick Doucouré ruled out for this match.

Roy Hodgson’s men have also struggled on home turf this season, taking just five points from a possible 18 at Selhurst Park.

That could well make the hosts vulnerable against an in-form opponent such as Bournemouth and the visitors are fancied to secure a vital win in this clash.

Dominic Solanke to score at anytime @ 21/10

Dominic Solanke has been crucial for Bournemouth this term, serving as the perfect focal point for their attack.

The Cherries forward has scored seven times in 14 league games and is fancied to get on the scoresheet again in this match.

Only five players have scored more goals than Solanke this season - Erling Haaland, Mo Salah, Heung-min Son, Jarrod Bowen and Ollie Watkins - and he looks the value pick to add to his tally for the campaign.
