Crystal Palace and Bournemouth played out a 2-2 draw on Saturday with Jermain Defoe's finishing impressing.
The Cherries grabbed the initiative early on against the run of play when a well worked corner routine saw Defoe put them ahead. Surman took the corner short and received it back before playing it low to Defoe at the penalty spot. He shot well to beat Speroni but may had had more time on the ball thanks to Josh King holding Schlupp. Palace went close through Benteke before losing Sakho to injury but they pressed on and took the lead. Zaha won a penalty which Milivojevic converted before sub Scott Dann finished a messy corner off at the far post. Defoe channelled his inner Van Basten to draw proceedings level. Both sides had their chances, most notably through Benteke in injury time, but the Belgian's penalty was poor and stopped by Begovic. Dec 9 - 12:21 PM
