Preview: Crystal Palace v Burnley

13 January 2018

Palace’s first home game of 2018 sees them take on Burnley, who have been the revelation of the Premier League this term having amassed enough points before the turn of the year to virtually secure a third-straight season in the top-flight.

The Eagles haven’t enjoyed the recent meetings between the teams, having lost each of the last four league games and the Clarets winning seven out of the previous nine in the top-flight, and Roy Hodgson’s team will be wary that only the top five have taken more points on their travels then Burnley’s 17 so far this campaign.

However, despite their heroics this season, Palace come into this clash as the form team with one league defeat in their last 11, while Dyche’s team haven’t tasted victory in over a month.

Clarets stuttering after a strong start

Despite only finding the net 19 times in their 22 Premier League games to date, a strong defence has ensured that Burnley have conceded the same amount. A run of one defeat in 10 matches between August and November has helped Dyche's team to their lofty league position, but they are now winless in six matches during a difficult winter.

The last of those came a week ago at Manchester City where their FA Cup hopes were dashed by a 4-1 scoreline, and having succumbed to a last-minute winner for Liverpool on New Year’s Day, 2018 hasn’t started the way they would have liked.

However, there has been better news on the transfer front with Dyche completing the loan signing of Tottenham winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou on Tuesday, and the ever-improving James Tarkowski signing a new long-term Clarets contract with a host of top teams sniffing around him.

View From The Opposition

Sean Dyche on Palace.

“They (Palace) will know we gave a good performance down there last season and we’ve happy memories of a good day. But they have settled things down this season and I don’t think anyone was in that much doubt that would happen.

“You look at the players they have and they are a better side than results in the early part of the season showed, and that’s been proved by Roy (Hodgson) and his staff.

“He seems to have simplified things and they have players who are organised and willing to work, so we know it’s another tough challenge for us.”

Team News

Roy Hodgson's selection headache has worsened after Monday's FA Cup defeat at Brighton, with Andros Townsend and Jeffrey Schlupp leaving the ground on crutches and both are set for a spell on the sidelines, with Schlupp requiring an operation. 

It is hoped that Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke have overcome their niggles to be fit to face Burnley, but the game is likely to come too soon for Joel Ward and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Mamadou Sakho is pencilled in for a February return, Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon are out for the season, while Connor Wickham continues to remain out with a knee injury.

Dyche has confirmed that Chris Wood and Stephen Ward will miss out with knee injuries, but Scott Arfield could return following a hamstring issue. Long-term casualities Robbie Brady and Tom Heaton will play no part, but Nkoudou will be involved in the matchday squad.

Match Reports

Report: Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

13 January 2018

Bakary Sako grabbed the only goal of the game to clinch another massive three points for the Eagles in their battle against the drop against Burnley at Selhurst Park.

The rejuvenated winger – playing up front once again – smacked home his sixth of the campaign in the first half to stretch Roy Hodgson’s team fine run to one defeat in their last 12 league outings, and that proved to be enough to see off the visitors and move Palace to within touching distance of the top half of the table.

The Eagles dominated the opening 45 minutes with Sako and Christian Benteke causing plenty of problems up front and the Malian could have been awarded an early penalty after he was brought down by a sliding challenge by James Tarkowski, but on 21 minutes he got himself on the scoresheet for the second time in a week.

After the ball bounced loosely in the Burnley half, Benteke hooked it towards the left flank for his strike partner, who picked up possession and charged goalwards. After tormenting Phil Bardsley to edge into the area, he characteristically thumped a shot goalwards with his hammer of a left foot, and it proved too powerful for Nick Pope whose outstretched foot couldn’t prevent it crashing into the net.

Playing with confidence, Palace came so close to adding a second moments later when Wilfried Zaha chased down a lost cause and managed to nick in ahead of Pope and knock the ball invitingly in front of an open goal, leading to a footrace between James McArthur and Ben Mee which the defender just about managed to win, and then on 27 minutes Benteke rippled the top of the net after a majestic leap to meet a Luka Milivojevic corner.

The visitors threatened very little in the first half but as it edged towards the final five minutes Sam Vokes headed well over before Wayne Hennessey was called into significant action when he had to tip over a dipping effort by Ashley Barnes from the edge of the box after Tarkowski had nodded a free-kick back into his path.

However it was Hodgson’s team who had two massive chances before the break to double their lead, but both were squandered. Firstly, some fine work by Martin Kelly led to Benteke nearly diverting home a wayward Patrick van Aanholt shot but Pope caught it in mid-air, and then a minute later Timothy Fosu-Mensah stood a fantastic cross towards the back post for Sako who watched it onto his boot, but his vicious volley whistled just past the opposite upright.

After the restart Barnes and Sako saw headers that barely troubled the goalkeepers but Sam Vokes went closer when Bardsley’s cross to the front post was met by the Welshman but driven into the side-netting, and as the second half progressed Sean Dyche’s team began to cause the Eagles more problems as they sought an equaliser, and nerves began to creep in around Selhurst Park.

However the second half wasn’t as action-packed as the first and chances were at a premium, however the remained on a knife-edge and with 83 minutes a long ball over the top released Barnes who went one-on-one with Hennessey but the Palace keeper did well to block the attempt and keep his team ahead at a crucial stage.

The points could have been wrapped up in the final minute when Benteke beat Mee to a header and charged forward, but he hesitated a moment too long to get his shot away and slammed it into the side-netting, but that miss wouldn’t prove costly as Palace returned to winning ways in SE25.

Palace: Hennessey, Fosu-Mensah, Tomkins, Kelly, Van Aanholt, Zaha, Milivojevic, Riedewald, McArthur, Sako, Benteke. Subs not used: Speroni, Souare, Wan-Bissaka, Delaney, Cabaye, Lee, Kaikai.

Burnley: Pope, Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Gudmundsson (Wells 86), Cork, Defour, Barnes, Hendrick (Nkoudou 64), Vokes. Subs not used: Lindegaard, Lowton, Long, Westwood, Walters.
