Goals from Marcos Senesi and Kieffer Moore earned AFC Bournemouth a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace as Andoni Iraola’s Cherries made it back-to-back away victories in the Premier League.

The Cherries, bidding to follow up their 3-1 triumph at Sheffield United and the 2-2 home draw with Aston Villa, took the lead when Senesi nodded the opener after 25 minutes.

Senesi’s first goal of the season was followed by Moore repeating the feat when he came off the bench to double the Cherries’ lead with a header in the first minute of added time.

Victory lifted Iraola’s team to 15th place in the Premier League, with 13 points from their past six games moving them nine points clear of the relegation zone.

Jordan Ayew headed tamely into the hands of Neto having got on the end of a Michael Olise free-kick after just three minutes.

Ayew then embarked on a darting run which took him into the 18-yard box, with Neto forced to palm his fierce drive over the crossbar.

Sam Johnstone turned Antonie Semenyo’s blistering 20-yarder around the post after Ryan Christie and Justin Kluivert had linked to create the opening.

As chances continued to come at both ends, Ayew, picked out by Olise, saw his shot blocked before Jefferson Lerma fired well wide of the target.

The Cherries broke the deadlock midway through the first half when Senesi arrived inside the six-yard box to head home after Sinisterra had flicked on Christie’s corner.

Iraola’s team were then thankful to Illia Zabarnyi for making a timely interception to prevent Odsonne Édouard levelling for the Eagles just minutes later.

The Ukraine defender was on hand to divert the French striker’s effort for a corner after Neto had parried Ayew’s shot into his path.

Sensei looked to repay Sinisterra for his assist, the Argentina international crossing for the Colombian to head over the crossbar.

As the first half drew to a close, Kluivert ended an electrifying great run with a shot which flashed past the upright.

Neto made a superb save to push Lerma’s thunderous drive on to the post early in the second half before Johnstone raced off his line to beat Semenyo to a through ball.

Olise drilled a free-kick from a promising position straight into the wall before a double change for the Cherries saw Tavernier and Billing replace Semenyo and Kluivert after 61 minutes.

Lerma slashed a volley high over the crossbar after Olise’s free-kick had been headed to him before Joel Ward took the ball off Billing’s toe as he prepared to pull the trigger from close range.

Édouard carved out a shooting chance after wriggling free but Smith blocked before Lerma nodded Olise’s inswinging free-kick past the post.

Senesi went close to grabbing a second in the closing stages when his effort from the edge of the box flew past the post.

Moore came off the bench to make it 2-0 in the first minute of added time, the striker heading home from close range after Billing had whipped in a cross having been found by Tavernier.
