Full time: Bournemouth 0-2 Crystal Palace

Peep peep! Palace move up to ninth, above Arsenal, after a quietly emphatic victory at the Vitality Stadium. Luka Milivojevic and Jordan Ayew scored fone goals in the first 23 minutes, and after that Palace kept Bournemouth at arm’s length with their usual excellent defending. It was an immaculate away performance. Thanks for your company, goodnight!

90+3 min No red card for Cook.

90+3 min Kouyate is down after wearing Lewis Cook’s elbow in the neck. VAR are looking at it.

90 min Six minutes of added time, it stays here.

89 min A Palace change. Jairo Riedewald on, James McCarthy off.

88 min Townsend wins a corner for Palace, who have managed the game perfectly in the second half. Bournemouth haven’t come close to scoring.

86 min Cook is booked for a lunge at Ayew.

84 min Stanislas smacks it into the wall.

83 min Callum Wilson is fouled on the edge of the D by van Aanholt. Lerma and Stanislas are over it…

82 min Lots of Bournemouth possession, but they still don’t look like getting behind Palace.

78 min A loose ball comes to Stanislas on the right side of the area. He chops the ball away from McArthur and drives a left-footed shot well wide of the far post.

76 min A Palace substitution: Andros Townsend replaces Christian Benteke.

73 min Van Aanholt’s angled free-kick is headed down by Benteke to Cahill, who lashes a volley over the bar from 15 yards. It was a very difficult chance, though he is an excellent finisher for a centre-back.

72 min Joel Ward is booked for a lunging tackle on someone or other.

72 min Bournemouth’s next game is away to Wolves on Wednesday. On the same evening, Crystal Palace go to Liverpool.

68 min Solanke shoots well wide from 20 yards. Bournemouth can’t lay a glove on Palace.

67 min Lewis Cook is booked for a foul on Ayew. I’m not sure it was a foul, in fact, but it was given.

66 min Ake is going to continue, though he doesn’t look great. I don’t know whether he has had a concussion test or not.

65 min A Palace substitution: James McCarthy for Luka Milivojevic, whose lovely free-kick gave them the lead.

65 min While Ake is being treated, the players take their drinks break a couple of minutes early.

63 min Ake’s header, from Stanislas’s outswinging corner, is comfortably saved by Guaita. Ake headed the back of Cahill’s head in his follow through and is receiving treatment. He looks okay, if a bit groggy.

61 min Another Bournemouth substitution. David Brooks, who did well on his return but is struggling with cramp, is replaced by Junior Stanislas.

58 min Palace are slowly draining the enthusiasm out of Bournemouth, as they did in the first half. A goal would change everything, but at the moment Palace are in control.

56 min “I always remember Gerard Pique’s anecdote about Carles Puyol on concentration,” says Mike MacKenzie. “One game, Barca were 4-0 up in the second half. Something humorous occurred and Pique laughed out loud. Puyol shouted at him ‘Focus!!’ (in Catalan of course!).”

55 min “Hodgson is indeed an excellent defensive coach,” says Matt Dony. “Now, as a Liverpool fan, I’m never going to be overly enamoured with him, and as a Welshman, there are few things funnier than THAT Iceland game (although, in fairness, much of the humour came from Steve McClaren’s reaction), but he is often unfairly dismissed. His record is long and impressive, and few British coaches can touch his work abroad. I hope he sticks around in the league for a little while yet.”

He’s a superb coach of smaller teams. It sometimes feels like he’d finish in mid-table whether he was in charge of Barcelona or Accrington Stanley.

53 min Lewis Cook shoots wide from 25 yards. Bournemouth cannot get behind this terrific Palace defence, hence all the shots from long-range.

51 min Lerma’s long-range shot is blocked by Dann. Bournemouth have made a bright start to the second half.

49 min Dominic Solanke replaces Josh King.

48 min King is being helped off the field, putting very little weight on his left ankle. And there’s no red card for Cahill.

47 min Lerma puts the ball out of play so that Josh King can receive treatment. It was a full-blooded tackle from Cahill, who won the ball and then followed through into King’s ankle. VAR are checking for a possible red card, and I reckon Cahill will walk for this.

46 min Peep peep! Bournemouth begin the second half.

Bournemouth have made a half-time change: Harry Wilson off, Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld on.

Half time: Bournemouth 0-2 Crystal Palace

Peep peep! Palace are on course for victory to thanks to excellent goals from Luka Milivojevic and Jordan Ayew. They have been immaculate in defence and ruthless in attack; Bournemouth haven’t.
