Preview: Burnley v Crystal Palace

16 January 2015



CLICK HERE to join the debate in the Burnley v Crystal Palace fanzone ahead of this Premier League clash. 


ABOUT
Having won his first game at Dover Athletic and his first league game against Tottenham last weekend, Alan Pardew heads into his first league away trip as Palace boss looking to end the Eagles' run of eight league games without a win on the road.

History isn't on Palace's side though, with neither club having won away to the other in the last 17 meetings between the Eagles and Clarets, plus Sean Dyche's side have only been beaten once at Turf Moor in their last six games.

Despite not scoring in their last four Premier League away days, should Palace fall behind their fans shouldn't be too concerned as Pardew has collected more points from losing positions than any other manager in the top-flight this season, and Burnley are susceptible to crosses as they have conceded more headed goals than anyone else in the division this season (11). 

But the Clarets have been on a roll of late and have picked up 13 out of their 20 points this season from their last 10 games, creeping out of the relegation zone last weekend after being fellow strugglers Queens Park Rangers.


TEAM NEWS
Burnley: Dyche is sweating over the hamstring injury sustained by Kieran Tripper in last week's victory. The full-back has started every game so far this season but is expected to shake off this particular problem to continue his record.

Long-term casualties Stephen Ward (ankle), Matthew Taylor (Achilles) and Kevin Long (knee) will all miss out but the squad are unaffected by the Asian Cup and Africa Cup of Nations call-ups.

Crystal Palace: James McArthur is fit for this game after shrugging off a foot injury sustained against Tottenham last weekend.

Marouane Chamakh is still struggling with a hamstring injury and Yannick Bolasie and Mile Jedinak are away on international duty.

LAST MEETING AT SELHURST PARK

Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace
Premier League

Palace saw their recent struggles continue as they were beaten at Burnley by a Junior Stanislas goal.

Although the hosts had chances early on, they needed Lee Grant to save well from Wilfried Zaha and Jason Shackell, but just as it seemed the visitors would push on for the win, Stanislas curled a brilliant strike into the top corner from the edge of the box.

Palace, who fielded debutant Alex Nimely, pressed for an equaliser and Mile Jedinak hit the bar in stoppage time but the Clarets held on.
