Bournemouth v Crystal Palace: is the Premier League fixture being screened live, how to watch highlights

Crystal Palace make the trip to Bournemouth this weekend in the latest round of Premier League fixtures

With the Qatar World Cup now done and dusted, all eyes once again return to the Premier League this weekend, as Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace travel down south to face Bournemouth. The game will be played at the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth on Saturday, January 31 2022.

Vieira will be looking to bounce back from back-to-back defeats, as the Eagles lost to both Premier League newcomers Nottingham Forest 1-0 and then a 3-0 defeat at the hands of London neighbours Fulham at home. Despite the recent rash of bad form, Crystal Palace still find themselves at this stage of the season in 11th position in the Premier League table.

For Bournemouth, their last game saw another London team in the form of Chelsea beat them 2-0 away from home. Goals from World Cup stars Kai Havertz (Germany) and Mason Mount (England) saw off the Cherries, who currently sit 14th in the Premier League table.

Crystal Palace have gotten the better of Bournemouth in the last five games played, with Palace winning three of the fixtures and drawing once. The biggest scoreline between both teams in their last five fixtures was a 5-3 win for Palace back in 2019.

Londonworld takes a look at the ways, if any, you can watch Crystal Palace travel to face Bournemouth in the latest Premier League gameweek.

Will Bournemouth v Crystal Palace be screened live on TV or streaming?

Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace has been selected for a 3pm kick-off time on Saturday and so it won’t be shown live on UK television. This is to comply with the ‘blackout’ regulation on televised coverage between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on a Saturday. Under the rules, broadcasting rights are restricted for clubs in the UK, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man.

Not all is lost, though, as highlights will be available for Sky Sports subscribers on the Sky Sports app around 15-30 minutes after the final whistle. The flagship BBC show Match of the Day will also show extensive highlights of the game along with all the other Friday and Saturday fixtures on BBC One on Saturday evening at 10pm followed by the BBC iPlayer.
