Superb Defoe equaliser gives Bournemouth draw at Palace

Superb Defoe equaliser gives Bournemouth draw at Palace

It is now 12 games without a goal for the Belgian, who is yet to find the back of the net this season.

Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe kept his incredible scoring record against Crystal Palace going at the Vitality Stadium with his third brace in a row against the Eagles. Cook lost the ball inside his own half and allowed Zaha to run on to it, but realising his mistake he aggressively scythed the Ivorian down from behind but somehow escaped with just a booking. His finish was of the highest quality. Benteke got hold of the ball.

But it was no surprise that Zaha sparked a turnaround in their fortunes, latching onto a Benteke flick, leaving Nathan Ake in his wake and rounding Begovic, whose trip prompted Friend to point to the spot and Milivojevic made no mistake, converting into the top-right corner. I think the first one you can see why it is given, but I still don't think it is clear cut. "The lads are adamant it's not a penalty".

Had Benteke found the net, Palace would have moved out of the relegation zone but because of his miss, they remain bottom of the league.

Meanwhile, Boston College enters Saturday's contest with a 6-3 record. He had help all game long, though, especially from 3-point range.

"That last 10 minutes was very, very tough".

The Eagles were again left rueing a lack of presence in the six-yard box shortly after the half-hour mark when Benteke nodded Zaha's free kick down in a risky area which no Palace player could capitalise on to add the finishing touch.

"It was probably too open from our perspective". "I caught a glimpse and thought I could direct it at goal".

Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has recovered from a back spasm and is ready to fight it out for the No.1 jersey with Julian Speroni, but defenders Joel Ward and James Tomkins are looking likely to miss out.
