AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe stuck with his trusted 4-4-1-1 formation, captain Simon Francis was restored to right-back following his hamstring injury, whilst Marc Pugh replaced the injured Junior Stanislas on the wing.

Up front and Joshua King made way for Jermain Defoe after the England international scored a late equaliser against Watford last week.

The Cherries twice came from behind against Crystal Palace to share the points at Dean Court.

Both goals came directly from substitutions with Lys Mousset getting the Cherries equaliser following Luka Milivojevic’s excellently taken free kick.

Cherries late equaliser from Joshua King cancelled out Wilfried Zaha’s effort.

The point left AFC Bournemouth 11th in the table on 38 points, ten points clear of Southampton, who remained in the relegation zone of the Premier League table.

Crystal Palace remain 17th in the Premier League table on 31 points, just three points ahead of Southampton, but having played two games more.
