April 7 (Reuters) - Norway striker Joshua King netted an opportunist late goal as Bournemouth twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 home draw with Crystal Palace in an electrifying Premier League clash on Saturday.

Superb goals from Serbia midfielder Luka Milivojevic and Wilfried Zaha twice put relegation-battling Palace in the driving seat but the home side hit back through second half substitutes Lys Mousset and King.

Milivojevic celebrated his 27th birthday with a brilliant free kick and livewire Zaha made it 2-1 with a dazzling piece of individual skill after Mousset had levelled with a fine shot from 20 metres.

But Palace, who have made it a habit to concede late goals, could not hold on and King salvaged a point for Bournemouth from point-blank range after a corner was headed into his path in the 89th minute. (Writing by Zoran Milosavljevic; Editing by Christian Radnedge)
