Crystal Palace’s unwanted record & more stats revealed after Bournemouth defeat

Crystal Palace travelled to Bournemouth on Tuesday evening, looking to put an end to a poor run of form that had seen them win just one in seven before this week.

However, despite Bournemouth’s questionable home form this term, the Cherries were able to beat Palace 1-0 thanks to a 79th-minute effort from Justin Kluivert. Crystal Palace now host Manchester City in Saturday’s early kick-off and are 9/4 to beat or draw with the Sky Blues at bet365.
