Bournemouth are unbeaten in their three Premier League away games against Crystal Palace (W1 D2) – they’ve only played at Vicarage Road (4) more often without defeat in the top-flight than they have at Selhurst Park (3).
Bournemouth are looking to do the league double over Crystal Palace for the first time since the 1988-89 second tier campaign
When playing their final game of a top-flight season at home, Crystal Palace have never lost, winning five and drawing two of their seven such games.
This is the seventh consecutive season Bournemouth are playing their final league game of the season away from home. The Cherries’ joint-biggest victory in a final game came against Crystal Palace (6-1 in the 1925-26 Third Division South).
Crystal Palace have won just 17 points in home games this season, compared to 29 away from home. If they lose this game, it will be the biggest difference between points won away compared to at home over a single top-flight campaign (12, adjusted to three points for a win all-time).
Bournemouth have scored eight goals in their last two Premier League away games – two more than they had in their previous 11 on the road in the competition (6).
