Bournemouth Secures Victory Against Palace with Late Kluivert Winner

Bournemouth’s impressive form continued as they secured a fourth win in five games with a late goal against Crystal Palace. The game, played in wet and windy conditions, looked to be heading for a goalless conclusion at Vitality Stadium before substitute Justin Kluivert fired beyond Dean Henderson in the 79th minute to secure the win.

Bournemouth’s current position of 11th in the table is a testament to their impressive first season under manager Andoni Iraola, who has guided the team to a tally of 41 points, surpassing last season’s total of 39. The Cherries are eyeing a top-half Premier League finish for only the second time and are building confidence and momentum with an unbeaten Premier League run that stretches back to 24 February.
