Bournemouth beat Palace after late Kluivert winner

2 weeks ago 26
Philip Billing's header is tipped onto the bar by Dean HendersonBournemouth are unbeaten in the Premier League since 24 February when they lost 1-0 at home to Manchester City

Bournemouth's impressive run continued as substitute Justin Kluivert's goal against Crystal Palace earned his team a fourth win in five games.

Kluivert fired beyond Dean Henderson after fellow substitute Antoine Semenyo out-muscled David Ozoh to tee-up his team-mate for the goal.

The game, played in wet and windy conditions, looked to be heading for a goalless conclusion at Vitality Stadium.

Philip Billing had a header tipped on to the bar by Henderson while at the other end Eberechi Eze's goal celebrations were cut short by an offside flag after the Palace player had finished from six yards.

But Kluivert's 79th-minute winner proved the difference and lifted his side up to 11th in the table.
