Preview: Burnley v Crystal Palace

1 March 2019

Crystal Palace travel to Burnley on Saturday (15:00 GMT), with both sides tied on 30 points and sharing remarkably similar records.

In the Premier League this season, both sides have played 28, won eight, drawn six and lost 14. Roy Hodgson's men have scored just one more goal than Sean Dyche’s side, but have a far superior defensive record and therefore goal difference (-6 vs -19), with the sides occupying 14th and 15th, in favour of the south London club.

Honours in Premier League clashes with each other are also mirrored, with both sides having beaten each other three times, sharing one draw.

Palace will be buoyed by the two most recent outings against Burnley, having won both – albeit both at Selhurst Park, not Turf Moor. However, Palace’s away record at the picturesque ground presents some cause for concern, having only won one in 10 (drawing four and losing five).

Furthermore, Burnley are unbeaten in four league games at home; winning three (West Ham United, Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur) and drawing one (Southampton).

Both sides lost in midweek after recent good form, Palace succumbing to the in-form Manchester United (1-3), whilst Burnley fell to Newcastle United (0-2).

Last meeting

An Andros Townsend wonder-strike and a lethal James McArthur cross that ended in the back of the net from the right wing was enough to seal all three points back in December.  Max Meyer was awarded Man of the Match by readers of cpfc.co.uk for his dazzling display. 

Team news

Mamadou Sakho and Aaron Wan-Bissaka both missed the Manchester United loss, however the latter is now available to play. Sakho is progressing well following a successful operation, but will not travel tomorrow. Pape Souare is out, though Hodgson suggested that he is returning to fitness well.

Dyche will be assessing the health of regular midfield starter Ashley Westwood, who missed the Newcastle game through illness. Aaron Lennon, Steven Defour and Jonathan Walters are unlikely to feature as long-term absentees.

Tactical overview

Dyche tends to opt for a traditional 4-4-2, with Tom Heaton currently in favour over Joe Hart between the sticks. Burnley’s last eight Premier League goals have been scored by either Chris Wood or Ashley Barnes, notching four each. Indeed, Chris Wood scored the sole goal in this fixture last season – a game that would be Frank de Boer’s last as Palace manager.

Hodgson has recently favoured a flat back four, a midfield three featuring two holding midfielders, two attacking wide players and a sole striker. In the last two league matches, the Palace manager has employed Michy Batshuayi as the number 9, supported with the electric pace of Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha. 

Who knew?

Burnley’s last 49 Premier League goals have all been scored inside the box – the last team to have a longer run were Palace, scoring 56 close-rangers between September 2016 and December 2017.

Meet the ref

Lee Probert will be the man with the whistle (who incidentally officiated the meeting of the sides in December too), joined by Simon Beck and Andy Garratt as his assistants and Robert Jones on the sidelines as fourh official.

Match Reports

Report: Rampant Palace fire three past Burnley

Burnley 1-3 Crystal Palace

2 March 2019

Things were the exact opposite for Crystal Palace when they faced Burnley for the second time this season.

It was the opposite leg of the fixture played at the opposite end of the country. It was the opposite style of play for Palace, who sat on the back foot compared with their offensive onslaught in December. It was the opposite in terms of its ruthlessness, with Palace netting freely rather than squandering chances in frustration.

One thing that wasn't the opposite, however, was the game's outcome as the Eagles ran out clear and deserving victors over Burnley for the second time this campaign.

Their trio of goals were netted across both halves, with Phil Bardsley scoring into his own net, Michy Batshuayi bagging half an hour of play later and Wilfried Zaha crowning things off striking home late in the game.

The hosts kick-started things with the first effort to warm the cold home crowd's hands, as, from a break down the right, Wayne Hennessey was called to glance a swinging cross over his bar with the tips of his gloves.

Despite Burnley's opening spell of pressure, Palace's contentment with sitting back paid off after barely 15 minutes of play when, charging down the field, Cheikhou Kouyate threaded through Zaha who fizzed a ball across the box.

Seeing it run wide, Jeffrey Schlupp raced to the edge of the area and hurled a cross back towards his teammates. To his own detriment, Burnley's Bardsley stood firmly in its way and the ball cannoned in off his out-stuck leg.

The Clarets looked to respond minutes later through Ashley Barnes, but Scott Dann's deflection was safe and, to Palace's relief, directed the ball out of play. The resulting corner tested them once more, however, and again Hennessey's fingertips were forced to tip a cross to safety.

With Burnley persistent in their determination to equalise, Hennessey justified his selection when he stood strong to deny Chris Wood from only a handful of yards.

Chance after chance tamely followed but the Eagles did as they have all season and defended with resolve.

Perhaps their closest first-half chance came when Jeff Hendrick brought down a lofted ball with his chest before unleashing an effort at goal which cannoned off the head of Patrick van Aanholt to safety. Had the Dutch defender not stood in its way, the shot would undoubtedly have been on target.

Less accurate, though almost as threatening, was Batshuayi's long-range effort at the other end of the pitch which flew over Tom Heaton's goal, alarmingly dipping and fizzing as it did.

Following the break, Palace burst the second-half into life in the 48th minute when Aaron Wan-Bissaka pressed down the right into Burnley's half before switching the ball to Batshuayi in the centre of the box. Handed the chance on a silver platter, the alert Belgian forward struck home from 12 yards with ease to double the Eagles' advantage.

Minutes later, Burnley squandered their most gilt-edged chance to pull a goal back in astonishing fashion as Wood headed the ball to Barnes who, from three yards out, struck the ball over under pressure from Dann.

Playing in a fine spell of form, Schlupp looked to crown off an impressive few months when he let fly from 20-yards, his venomous strike being edged just over by Heaton.

Burnley weren't finished yet, though, and Barnes was next to try to open their account, but his volley from 15 yards sailed wide of Hennessey's goal.

Albeit not in the vein they had been wanting, the host's finish did ultimately come, however, via the mesmeric feet of Zaha, who, having worked his way into Burnley's box, danced and shimmied his way into a shooting position before rifling home with devastating effect. His first and Palace's third ensured the Eagles returned to south London with three points.

Three points secured, the Eagles did still however give Burnley fans something to cheer when Barnes struck home from close range to open their account in the 90th minute.

Despite Palace's two-goal cushion, Barnes' effort still led to a tense conclusion and Peter Crouch almost bagged the Clarets' second to really set things on edge, but Hennessey's overworked fingertips were again the visitor's saviour as he pushed a fine effort wide of his far post.

The travelling Palace fans able to sigh a breath of relief, referee Lee Probert blew his whistle for full time as the south Londoners moved up to 13th in the Premier League table.

Burnley: Heaton, Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Bardsley, McNeil (Brady 72), Cork, Hendrick (Guðmundsson 45), Westwood, Barnes, Wood (Crouch 81).

Palace: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Dann, Wan-Bissaka, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Kouyate, Meyer (McArthur 71), Zaha (Townsend 78), Batshuayi (Benteke 83).
