    Crystal Palace 5-3 Bournemouth

    A fine way to finish another season!

    Palace finish 12th. Bournemouth come 14th.

    Reaction here.


    Crystal Palace 5-3 Bournemouth

    There's still time for 20-year-old Luke Dreher to come on for his Palace debut. He replaces England international Andros Townsend.


    Crystal Palace 5-3 Bournemouth

    We're into added time.

    Julian Speroni has appeared on the touchline and is signing autographs and taking selfies.

    He'll get a great send-off I'm sure.

    More subs.

    Sam Surridge is on for Nathaniel Clyne for Bournemouth.

    Palace also replace Michy Batshuayi, who scored two first-half goals, with Connor Wickham.

    Will this be the Belgian's last Palace appearance?


    Crystal Palace 5-3 Bournemouth

    Wilfried Zaha's temper is still bubbling and Roy Hodgson takes the sensible decision to replace him.

    He is given a standing ovation by the home fans.

    They'll be hoping this isn't the last time they see him in a Palace shirt.

    Surely that's the three points secured now!

  7. GOAL - Crystal Palace 5-3 Bournemouth

    Andros Townsend

    Andros Townsend celebrates

    Don't make Wilfried Zaha angry. Moments ago he was booked for a tussle with Jefferson Lerma and was not happy after a stern talking to by the referee.

    He then collects the ball on halfway, beats a couple of players and charges towards the Bournemouth goal.

    On reaching the 18-yard box he squares to Andros Townsend who sweeps into the bottom corner.

    Crystal Palace 4-3 Bournemouth

    We've still got 15 minutes left. There's time for this to finish 6-6.

  9. GOAL - Crystal Palace 4-3 Bournemouth

    Joshua King

    Josh King scores

    Told you it was good! A seventh goal!

    From the resulting corner Joshua King sneaks in at the back post and converts.

    Bournemouth are back in it again.


    Crystal Palace 4-2 Bournemouth

    Great game!

    The ball flies straight up the other end Lys Mousset is in but his effort is saved.

  11. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 4-2 Bournemouth

    Max Meyer comes within a whisker of number five.

    He takes a shot early on the edge of the box but curls it inches wide of the post.


    Crystal Palace 4-2 Bournemouth

    That goal hasn't taken the wind out of Bournemouth's sails too much.

    They're still attacking and Eddie Howe makes a double change.

    Jordon Ibe is replaced by Lys Mousset and Chris Mepham comes on for Jack Simpson at the back.

  13. GOAL - Crystal Palace 4-2 Bournemouth

    Patrick van Aanholt

    Patrick van Aanholt celebrates

    Crystal Palace are comfortable again. This is a really good goal.

    Patrick van Aanholt feeds Wilfried Zaha. Zaha jinks around in the box while Van Aanholt continues his run before feeding the ball back to the Dutchman who tucks the ball between Mark Travers legs.

    They restores Palace's two-goal advantage.


    Crystal Palace 3-2 Bournemouth

    Adam Smith goes down in the box. Not for me, Clive.

  15. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Bournemouth

    And with good reason. Jordon Ibe makes room on the edge of the box and shoots on goal. Had it been a foot further to the left then Palace keeper Vicente Guaita would have had a more difficult save to make.

  16. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth pressing forward again. They fancy this. Selhurst Palace is as quiet and nervy as it has been all season.

  17. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Bournemouth

    Palace were 3-0 up at 37 minutes. Roy Hodgson doesn't look as comfortable now.

  18. GOAL - Crystal Palace 3-2 Bournemouth

    Jordon Ibe

    Jordan Ibe celebrates

    Game on!

    Jordon Ibe drills a shot from the edge of the box and with the help of a slight deflection the ball nestles in the bottom corner.

  19. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-1 Bournemouth

    Michy Batshuayi rattles the side netting as he hunts a hat-trick. Teenage keeper Mark Travers might have got a touch on that one too, looking at the replays.


    Crystal Palace 3-1 Bournemouth

    Another stop from Travers! This one is closer to him and as a result more comfortable but he parries away James McArthur's shot.

    Palace have started the half well.
