        Bournemouth maintained their best start to a Premier League season with a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace last weekend.

        The Cherries had been in front after just five minutes when David Brooks curled in off the crossbar for his first Premier League goal.

        But after half-time Palace improved, and the visitors equalised in the 55th minute when Dutch full-back Patrick van Aanholt beat Asmir Begovic at the near post with a powerful strike into the top corner.

        The spoils looked set to be shared, but Junior Stanislas hit the winning goal from the penalty spot (86) after referee Mike Dean had spotted an elbow from Mamadou Sakho on Jefferson Lerma.

        The game ended in bad-tempered fashion as a number of players from both teams were involved in a scuffle after Lerma and Cheikhou Kouyate squared up.

        Bournemouth have secured their best start to a Premier League season and climb to seventh while Palace stay 13th.

        Eddie Howe: "First half we looked really good, and at the end of the game. You could say we shaded it and deserved to win - Roy may say differently. We have confidence that we have a goal in us at any time, and we have matchwinners who can turn the game. The togetherness and the spirit in the group is as good as it's ever been."

        Roy Hodgson: "Sakho has no intention to elbow the player or use his elbow to stop the player getting to the ball, because he wouldn't have got to the ball, but I can't deny when you see it on the TV that Mamadou does catch the player and so the referee's quite entitled to give the penalty. The players feel aggrieved as normally when you give away a penalty you're deliberately trying to stop someone scoring."
