Bournemouth 1-0 Crystal Palace: Kluivert wins it late on

Bournemouth extended their unbeaten run to six Premier League games as they beat Crystal Palace late on at a soggy Vitality Stadium on Tuesday.


Andoni Iraola's side created big chances in each half and Justin Kluivert smashed home late on to give the hosts a win which puts them in the conversation for a top 10 finish.

Crystal Palace huffed and puffed and had a goal chalked out by VAR and had several penalty kick shouts turned down as Oliver Glasner's side will be looking a little nervously over their shoulders given their tough schedule to end the season.

Full time: Bournemouth 1-0 Crystal Palace

The Cherries grab all three points and that feels about right. They forced the issue more and had that extra bit of quality when they needed it. Palace just never really believed they were going to win this game.

Henderson saves from Semenyo

It is all Bournemouth now and Semenyo is in but his shot is saved down low by Henderson.

Kluivert smashes home after great work from Semenyo - Bournemouth 1-0 Crystal Palace (79th minute)

That is lovely stuff from half time sub Semenyo as he beats his man down the right and pulls it back for Kluivert. The Dutchman has plenty to do but he takes a touch and hammers home to give Bournemouth the lead late on.

Not much going on in the second half

Both teams are working hard in these tough conditions. We have the first chance of the second half as a shot from distance is spilled by Henderson and Solanke is on the loose ball but Henderson saves and then goes down injured as a free kick is given against Solanke.

Half time: Bournemouth 0-0 Crystal Palace

Such a tight game and it is level at the break. Both teams have had a couple of big chances but it's a stalemate so far in the soaking conditions.

Eze thought he had put Palace ahead but VAR spots an offside

Eze tucks home at the back post after Mateta had won the ball and a cross came in from the right. Eze celebrates but VAR checked the goal and Mateta was just offside. It was his heel and that was it. No goal.

Top save from Henderson, then Kelly heads wide

Smith whips in a cross from the right and Billing's towering header looks certain to go in but Henderson gets a fingertip to it and it hits the bar and goes out for a corner. From that corner Lloyd Kelly climbs highest but his header at the back post skips just wide. Bournemouth so close to an opener. Twice.

Palace are growing into this game with chances at both ends

Mateta turns superbly and gets his shot off but it is straight at Neto. Eze is starting to pop up in dangerous areas and causing problems too. Moments later a counter finds Billing but he drags his shot wide. It's livening up in the pouring rain as Will Hughes and Eze both charge towards goal but make the wrong decision when it matters most.

Calm start in the rain on the South Coast

Bournemouth are doing all of the probing but they are yet to really open Crystal Palace up.
