Palace boss Alan Pardew was full of praise for Burnley manager Sean Dyche ahead of the clash between the teams tomorrow afternoon.
Dyche's side sit in 14th spot in the league after their opening 10 games, with results that include home victories against Liverpool and Everton, meaning Pardew recognises the threat they will pose at Turf Moor this weekend.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Pardew said: "They have had some fantastic results at home and are a real test for anyone to play against. They are an honest team and you know you are going to have to work very hard and hope that your quality is more than theirs.
"On their home patch at the moment they have good confidence but I think it will be a game where we have the lion's share of possession, but it will be very difficult."
The 2016/17 season is Dyche's second Premier League campaign with Burnley and he has been on a path that has been admired by the Palace boss.
"He has done a super job at Burnley, two promotions at that football club tells its own story and he is a young manager who has done it the right way," Pardew added.
"He has done all the coaching badges, done the assistant managers job and has now stepped up and done the manager’s job to a great level. He brings an honesty and thoroughness to his performances, is a modern coach who will have a long career in this game I am sure."
