Bournemouth Team News
Bournemouth were relegated from the top flight in 2019-20. In fact, Jason Tindall’s men have none to blame but themselves for their exclusion from the Premier League – as such were their form. They had gone on long stretches of losses and winless games, that towards the end even some lucky wins could not extend their stay in the league.
Injury update, unavailability
The home side don’t have a major injury or suspension issue before coming into this match.
BOU Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Dennis; Stacey, Simpson, Cook, Kelly, Smith; Brooks, Gosling, Billing, Stanislas; Surridge
Crystal Palace Team News
New signing Ebereche Eze could be set for his full Palace debut after coming off the bench against Southampton. The 22-year-old could be joined by fellow summer signing Michy Batshuayi, who was an unused substitute in the season opener. Hodgson won’t be afforded the luxury of too much rotation however due to a number of injuries, with the tie likely to come too soon for Mamadou Sakho, who returned to training last week.
Injury update, unavailability
Palace will be without the services of Cheikhou Kouyate and Scott Dann due to injury.
CRY Playing 11 & Subs (probable)
Hennessey; Ward, Woods, Kouyate, Mitchell; Townsend, Riedewald, McCarthy, Meyer; Eze, Batshuayi
