Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola on the key 'difference' between Oliver Glasner and Roy Hodgson

Crystal Palace travel to Bournemouth tonight looking for their second win under their new boss.

Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola says Crystal Palace are a different side tactically under Oliver Glasner and tips the Eagles manager to bring his success from Eintracht to south London. They have only won one game in four ahead of their trip to The Cherries this evening though.

Performances have lifted since Glasner's appointment but the results haven't significantly turned. They are 14th on the league table on 30 points so they still need 10 to reach the magical 40 and put to bed any fears of relegation.

Bournemouth have won their last two games but their manager Iraola expects a tough test and names the difference between the Palace side under former manager Roy Hodgson and Europa League winner Glasner.

Iraola said ahead of the game this evening: "I think probably names-wise it doesn't change a lot. It's true that they've signed two very good signings with Daniel Munoz and Adam Wharton, who plays in the middle. Very, very good signings that gives them more options.

"But tactically it is completely different. Because Glasner, I remember him from Eintracht, he plays this system he has really well." 

Crystal Palace the underdogs 

Bournemouth beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in December, ending a run of five consecutive Premier League defeats against them, and are vying for their first league double against the Londoners since 1988-89.

The Londoners have scored first in each of their past six league matches but have only won one of those games so there is work to be done if they are to record their second win under their new boss.
