AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth took another step towards achieving a club-record Premier League points haul following a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Justin Kluivert’s finely-executed second-half goal settled a tense encounter in favour of Andoni Iraola’s team at Vitality Stadium.

Kluivert’s seventh goal of the season, which owed much to the persistence of Antoine Semenyo, saw the Cherries climb to 11th place in the table.

Their points tally of 41 surpassed last season’s total of 39 – with eight games remaining – and edged them closer to the club-record high of 46, which came when they finished ninth in 2016/17.

Kluivert’s goal also saw the Cherries equal a club Premier League record of three successive home wins, set in 2016/17 and matched the following season, Iraola’s team following up wins over Luton and Everton.

The Netherlands international came off the bench to score the only goal 11 minutes from time as the Cherries made it four wins from five games.

He rifled the ball beyond Palace goalkeeper Dean Henderson after fellow substitute Semenyo had outmuscled David Ozoh before teeing up his teammate.

Palace had an Eberechi Eze goal ruled out for offside at the end of the first half, while Philip Billing saw a header acrobatically saved by Henderson.
