Description: BOU Vs CRY Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Bournemouth get a taste of Premier League action today when Crystal Palace come calling.
After having asserted their spot in the Premier League for a couple of seasons, Bournemouth sudden demise in the 2019-20 campaign startled one and many. Few had envisioned the side to go down and endure the lacklustre sortie they did in the league the last time around.
In what was a horrendous season for the club, Bournemouth ended up getting relegated to the Championship. And as expected, a string of players ended up departing the club for greener pastures to leave Bournemouth in the need of a rebuild as they strived to return to the Premier League.
While the club is still trying to reign in fresh faces while hang onto old ones, the side did manage to open its Championship 2020-21 sojourn with a win. Bournemouth needed to dig deep and show immense resolve to stave of Blackburn’s repeated wave of attacks but the side managed to hang onto threads to preserve 3-2 at the end of the day.
It was a much needed win for a club for whom little was going its way across the last couple of wins. It also inducts them with much needed confidence ahead of their round two clash against Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup.
Crystal Palace themselves were quite impressive at the weekend. Despite being massively depleted in defences as injuries rocked the side, the team pulled off a tenacious showing to pull off an unlikely 1-0 against Southampton.
That win showed the mettle of this Crystal Palace side, a team which should go onto win today’s outing.

Wayne Hennessey from Crystal Palace will be ingrained in our Dream 11 side as the goal-keeper for today. With the side’s defence paper thin today as the side looks to compensate for both injuries and a hectic schedule, Wayne will be persistently called upon to parry away shots.
And we envision him coming out with a solid display to accumulate a neat amount of save points.
Despite reeling under injuries, Crystal Palace managed to pull off an unprecedented cleansheet the last time around. It was a remarkable show of strength, resolve and acumen from the side, one which showed what they are capable of when they apply themselves out in the middle.
It was a well versed performance, one which sees us move in with a duo from the club. Both Joel Ward and Martin Kelly will be instilled in the team while Bournemouth’s attackingly inclined Jack Stacey becomes the first pick from the side.
He’s still touted to leave the club this season but with nothing concrete transpiring till now, David Brooks should step out for Bournemouth today. He’s an electric player, someone capable of pulling off gripping displays and making a telling impact on the park.
Philip Billing just doesn’t have luck on his side at the moment. He’s been relegated with two clubs in two successive seasons but its hardly down to his fault.
He’s a staunch presence in midfield, a player capable of both pulling off tackles and blocks along with turnovers of possession to make him our pick from the home side.
Crystal Palace on the other hand see us opt for a trio of picks from the side. Luka Milivojevic was only used as a substitute against Southampton which should see him be a part of the side’s playing 11 today.
His role on penalties and freekicks make him a must have pick for us alongside counterpart James McArthur. New entrant Eberechi Eze is set to get a full run out on the pitch today, one where’ll be ardently looking to show why the club moved in for his services this term.
Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi impressed the last time he played for Crystal Palace and he’ll be looking to do the same again. He scored three for Belgium last week to see him become a must have pick from the side.
Elsewhere, Dominic Solanke will be snagged by us from Bournemouth to complete our setup.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Batshuayi’s threat and ability to pounce onto chances sees him captain our side while Luka is the vice-captain.
