Having produced all of their four goals after the break in last season's encounter at the Vitality Stadium, Al Hain-Cole expects another slow burner

Bournemouth will be looking to move level on points with sixth-placed Watford when they welcome Crystal Palace to the Vitality Stadium in Monday’s Premier League clash.

Eddie Howe’s men have taken 10 points from their opening six matches in an impressive start to the season, although they fell to a heavy 4-0 defeat against Burnley last time out.

Latest Odds

Having won three and lost none of their last four league games on home turf, they are 13/10 (2.30) favourites with bet365 to bounce back by coming out on top in this one.

The Eagles have only won one of their last five in the league, but are priced at 23/10 (3.30) to move into the top half of the table with victory here.

Both meetings between this pair last season finished 2-2, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on this one also ending up all square.

Team News

Diego Rico and Dan Gosling are both doubtful due to hamstring and calf problems respectively, while Charlie Daniels is unlikely to feature despite returning to training after a knee injury.

Christian Benteke remains on the sidelines due to a niggling knee problem, with Jairo Riedewald joining him after suffering an injury in last week’s win over West Brom in the EFL Cup.

Action second half

Despite eventually producing four goals, last season’s encounter at this ground saw the sides go in at half-time with the scoreline locked at 0-0.

It could well be a similar story this time out, with the Cherries yet to concede before the break in five home matches this campaign and their opponents having let in just one first-half goal in eight fixtures so far.

Predictions

All in all, even odds (2.00) look like solid value on the majority of the goalmouth action taking place in the second half when Palace visit Bournemouth.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
