Premier League football returns at Turf Moor this weekend with Palace’s visit to the north west to take on Burnley,in a game chosen as one of the live television matches this afternoon.
This season so far The Clarets have won away at Chelsea on the opening day and a draw against Tottenham on their travels this season but their one home game this term has seen them fall to a 1-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion.
Palace go into the game looking to open their points tally for the season following two home defeats and a narrow loss at Anfield in their one match away from Selhurst.
Burnley have won six of their eight top-flight encounters against the Eagles whilst the visitors took maximum points in a 3-2 win in January 2015.
The last meeting between the two sides was at Selhurst Park towards the end of last season and Sean Dyche’s side picked up their first away win of the season with a 2-0 victory.
OPPOSITION VIEW : Sean Dyche
This is the first match back in the dugout for Sean Dyche since the closing of the summer transfer window and he was pleased with the business his club was able to carry out.
“I don’t think it’s ever going to be massive jumps in finance here, or alleged quality – I say alleged because there are no guarantees even if you pay £30m-plus on a player, it’s always going to be about edging forward and building, we’ve done it year after year. I’m measured on results, but the way the club has moved forward has been very good and effective to date.
“We’ve built again, the group is stronger and can take it forward again. We’ve lost two important players, but that has happened almost yearly, and we’ve come through those challenges before well.”
Midfielder Jeff Hendrick is a doubt for the game as he had to miss both Republic of Ireland matches during the international break with a thigh injury.
Chris Wood could make his first Premier League start since his move from Leeds United and Jon Walters is available for selection.
In this match Chung yong-Lee could become the third South Korean player to make 100 Premier League appearances, after Park Ji-Sung and Ki Sung-yueng.
Frank de Boer is still without Connor Wickham and Wilfried Zaha but it is likely he will have Ruben Loftus, Yohan Cabaye and James Tomkins back available.
