Neither of these sides have any real fears of relegation, but every position counts come the end of the season so there's still plenty to play for. Here's how to watch a Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace live stream from anywhere with a VPN.

The last four Premier League meetings between these two sides have ended in 2-0 wins – three to Palace and, most recently, one to Bournemouth last December. That was the start of a four-game winning run for the Cherries, but they've since been through a sequence of seven games without a victory, so things have been less rosy on the south coast since the turn of the year. Andoni Iraola's side have no fears of relegation, but they're still just shy of that reassuring 40-point mark, so three points here would help to ease any underlying doubts.

It's now been a month since Oliver Glasner succeeded Roy Hodgson as Crystal Palace coach and apart from a trip to Tottenham at the start of March he couldn't have asked for a gentler introduction to the English top flight. Games against Everton, Burnley, Luton and Nottm Forest – all teams in and around the relegation zone like Palace – perhaps haven't yielded as many points as the Austrian coach would have liked, but nobody said the Premier League was going to be easy. 

Here's how the teams line up:

Bournemouth XI: Neto (GK); Smith, Kelly, Zabarnyi, Outtara; Cook, Billing; Christie, Scott, Tavernier; Solanke.

Crystal Palace XI: Henderson (GK); Mitchell, Andersen, Ward, Muñoz; Lerma, Hughes, Wharton; Ayew, Eze, Mateta.
