The first Saturday of Premier League action after coronavirus concludes with the competition’s first ever live match on the BBC as Bournemouth welcome Crystal Palace to the Vitality Stadium.

Roy Hodgson’s side had won three on the bounce, pushing them up to 11th within the table and, remarkably, just two points off London rivals Tottenham in eighth.

But while Palace were pushing towards a eu spot, Eddie Howe and Bournemouth were desperately fighting for Premier League survival.

Bournemouth sit 18th and within the relegation zone – a win against Palace could prove vital.

The Eagles haven’t before won four top-flight games during a row without conceding then could make a slice of club history this 

weekend, while they last won four Premier League games during a row almost two years ago.

The flurry of points lifted Palace comfortably faraway from danger and that they need just one more point to succeed in the magic 40-

point mark, although their Premier League status for next season is effectively secured already.

Roy Hodgson could have loftier ambitions for his side than merely avoiding relegation too – victory on Saturday could lift Palace as 

high as eighth, above Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, and not entirely out of contention for a eu spot.

Crystal Palace vs Montpellier Team News

Howe has confirmed that he will not select contract rebel Ryan Fraser, 

who has refused to sign a short-term extension to his current deal and can therefore leave on June 30.

Simon Francis, Andrew Surman, Artur Boruc and Charlie Daniels have all put pen to paper on contracts to ascertain them through to the top of the campaign, 

though, and every one but the injured Daniels are expected to be available.

Howe could also welcome long-term absentee David Brooks back to his squad, while Phillip Billing is about to undergo a late fitness test on an ankle injury.

Callum Wilson was in propriety before lockdown, netting three goals in his last six games, 

but he has scored just one occasion in his last 10 home Premier League outings.

Crystal Palace are blessed a clean bill of health after three months off, 

with Mamadou Sakho, Jeffrey Schlupp and James Tomkins among the players once more available to Hodgson.

Jordan Ayew is predicted to steer the road again having earned his side 14 points together with his eight league goals this season –

 without that haul, the Eagles would sit below Bournemouth in 19th.

Indeed, Palace are unbeaten in matches where Ayew has scored this term, 

and that they also will hope to possess a goal threat from Patrick van Aanholt, who scored home and away against the Cherries last season.
