Benteke helps Big Sam break his Palace duck
Bournemouth 0 Crystal Palace 2
Crystal Palace secured their first Premier League win under Sam Allardyce at the sixth time of asking as Bournemouth completed January without a win.
Eagles winger Wilfried Zaha was excellent on his first appearance since returning from the African Nations Cup, but it was Scott Dann who gave the visitors the lead less than a minute into the second half.
The defender capitalised on Damien Delaney's clever flick to score his first goal since September.
There was further good news for Palace last night when a loan move was confirmed for Liverpool centre-back Mamadou Sakho with Palace paying a £2m loan fee plus Sakho's wages. They have also signed midfielder Luka Milivojevic from Olympiakos for £11m.
