Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe kept his incredible scoring record against Crystal Palace going at the Vitality Stadium with his third brace in a row against the Eagles.

The first came to open the scoring after 10 minutes, though the second, which came three minutes into first-half injury time, will be the one that people remember.

The 35-year-old striker chased down a long ball over the top from Lewis Cook, only to dispatch the effort first time over Julian Speroni’s head from an acute angle…

Hell of a strike. Almost Van Basten-esque trajectory.

As an aside, Palace don’t half seem to concede their fair share of wonder goals: Andy Carroll’s bicycle kick, Olivier Giroud’s scorpion volley, Dele Alli’s twist-and-unleash, Patjim Kasami’s blunderbuss; all scored against Palace, and there’s probably plenty more we can’t think of off-the-cuff.

It’s a anomalous quirk, but still a little bit weird, no?
