Premier League: Crystal Palace 1-1 AFC Bournemouth | Dann holds Bournemouth to a tie

Lewis Grabban of AFC Bournemouth in action during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and AFC Bournemouth at Selhurst Park on August 27, 2016 in London, England.

A stoppage-time header from Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann denied AFC Bornemouth their first win of the season in an enthralling encounter at Selhurst Park.

Joshua King’s 11th-minute strike, his first of the Premier League season, put the Cherries ahead, netting from an angle.

Yohan Cabaye had the chance to equalize from the penalty spot when Charlie Daniels fouled Christian Benteke, making his PL debut for Palace, but Artur Boruc flew to his right to save.

Callum Wilson could have made it 2-0 when one-on-one minutes later but Steve Mandanda in the Palace goal saved his weak effort.

Palace upped the pressure but stops from Boruc and goalline clearances from Steve Cook and Harry Arter denied them until Dann met Jason Puncheon’s cross in the 93rd minute for the two sides’ first points of the campaign.
