Crystal Palace will assess the fitness of Scott Dann, who picked up a slight strain in training on Friday.

David Brooks, Dan Gosling and Dominic Solanke will all miss the Cherries’ final game of the season through injury.

Mark Travers looks set to retain his spot between the sticks following his impressive debut against Spurs.

Did you know?

Palace have never lost when playing the final match of a top-flight season at home, winning five and drawing the other two of their seven such fixtures.

The Eagles have won only one of their last seven PL meetings with AFC Bournemouth (D4 L2), winning 2-0 away in January 2017.

With 12 and 10 goals respectively Luka Milivojevic and Wilfried Zaha have made this the first time that two Palace players have reached double figures in a single PL campaign.

AFC Bournemouth are unbeaten in their three PL away matches against Palace (W1 D2).
