Bournemouth 0-2 Crystal Palace: Eagles increase Bournemouth relegation worries

Of Luka Milivojevic’s 27 Premier League goals, 24 have come from either a penalty (21) or direct free-kick (three)

Crystal Palace left struggling Bournemouth deep in Premier League relegation trouble with a comfortable victory at the Vitality Stadium.

In the first top flight game shown live on BBC TV since 1988, Roy Hodgson’s side eased into the top 10 but left the mediocre Cherries in the relegation zone.

Palace took the lead when Luka Milivojevic curled in a 12th-minute free-kick before Jordan Ayew swept home a second after 23 minutes.

Palace saw out the victory in comfort as Bournemouth failed to mount any sort of serious pressure, to leave manager Eddie Howe and his side in serious trouble at the foot of the Premier League.
