Crystal Palace have managed to haul themselves off the foot of the Premier League table for the first time since September and under the guidance of boss Roy Hodgson they are showing marked signs of improvement following a dreadful start to the campaign. Nevertheless they look drastically short at around Evens to beat AFC Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon and we’ll be siding with the visitors to manage something from this match at Selhurst Park.

Following the appointment of Hodgson as manager of the Eagles, the south London side have avoided defeat in front of their home fans and they are proving to be a bit of a handful on their travels. Nevertheless of concern to the former England boss will be their inability to find the net away from Selhurst Park.

Whilst Palace are hardly setting the Premier League alight they look strongly positioned to avoid relegation from the top-flight given their recent signs of improvement. That said, there is no way that we will be backing them at such meagre odds to beat Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

Bournemouth are also moving in the right direction following a disappointing start to the season with the Cherries enjoying a fine run of form during mid-October to mid-November. This run has slowed down, although the side have dropped just two points from their last three away matches with their particularly solid defence leaking just a single goal during that time.

The Cherries have won away to Newcastle United and Stoke City in recent weeks and the vocal and passionate Palace support will likely have little effect on the outcome of this match. Indeed none of the three possible outcomes for this meeting would be in the slightest bit surprising, however we feel that the most likely outcome is a share of the spoils between what are two pretty evenly-matched sides.
