AFC Bournemouth hosts Crystal Palace at the Vitality Road in a game from the 30th round of the Premier League
AFC Bournemouth hosts Crystal Palace at the Vitality Road in a game from the 30th round of the Premier League. We will use our English Premier League predictions to present you some info about this match on Saturday.
For AFC Bournemouth is critically important to start winning more points. At this moment the Cherries are in the relegation zone, being 18th with 27 points. Their hopes for survival are still alive though as they are on the same level with West Ham United and Watford, who are in the safe zone at the moment. This means that Bournemouth could improve their position rather quickly, if they show a better form.
Current form – this is Bournemouth’s biggest problem at the moment. The Cherries won just one point in their last four matches – against Chelsea. The manager Eddie Howe is aware that with this kind of performance his team would have big problems to keep its place in the league.
Last week Bournemouth conceded a 16th loss for the campaign. Howe’s team visited the leader Liverpool, but conceded a 1-2 loss at the Anfield.
Crystal Palace are in a much better situation at the moment, being 11th with 39 points. It’s widely believed that 40 points usually guarantee survival in the Premier League, so Palace need just one point more. We believe theyll will win more than one point until the end of the season, of course.
Last week Roy Hodgson’s team won for a third consecutive time, which is impressive. Palace hosted Watford and achieved a 1-0 win. It seems that the Londoners are hitting a peak form in the most crucial phase of the campaign.
In our English Premier League predictions we favour Crystal Palace as their current form is just brilliant – three wins in the last three games. AFC Bournemouth will try to give them a fight, though. Let’s see how much of a fight this is going to be.
