Eberechi Eze scored a superb double as Crystal Palace secured a dominant 2-0 win over Bournemouth at Selhurst Park.
The in-form Eze opened the scoring from close range after a fine piece of skill from Wilfried Zaha (39), then added a stunning second after collecting Michael Olise’s cross-field pass, cutting inside, and finding the top corner from the edge of the box (58).
The goals took the midfielder’s tally to 10 in the Premier League this season, six of which have come in his last seven games, and ensured Palace moved level on points with 11th-placed Chelsea, the only downside being an apparent hamstring injury to Zaha
Bournemouth, meanwhile, offered practically nothing as an attacking force, failing to even register a shot on target, the defeat meaning they are still not mathematically safe from the drop, despite being eight points above the relegation zone in 14th.
