Jeffrey Schlupp netted the match-winning effort with a fine goal on the end of a surging run, while Jordan Ayew fought relentlessly to pin the visiting Cherries back.
Wilfried Zaha terrorised the Bournemouth team from front to back while, playing as a makeshift centre-back, Cheikhou Kouyate held the defence firm to secure a clean sheet. Another man who had a crucial hand to play in the Eagles' success at the back was Vicente Guaita, who made another spectacular save as the game wound down.
