Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth Preview

Both Crystal Palace and Bournemouth have had poor starts to the season failing to register points as of yet. Alan Pardew and Eddie Howe will look to ensure that they get their Premier League season off to a start. 

With Wilfried Zaha subject to transfer speculation by Tottenham Hotspurs, its likely that Pardew will leave him on the bench. Bournemouth, however, have a squad capable of stretching Palace to its limits. 

Bournemouth will take on Toni Pulis' West Brom next week, a physical battle which they'll need to be in top condition for. While Palace do pose a threat in quick passing and wide play, Howe is going to cautious in his choice at the centre of the field. 

Palace and Pardew, meanwhile, are likely to play their strongest team for this match. Cabaye to Benteke is a threat Howe will need to watch out for. Pardew's choice to play Townsend in matches with pressers is an interesting choice and the Englishman is likely to get some game time tonight as well.
