Crystal Palace v Burnley - Preview and possible lineups

Matt Morley by Matt Morley @rfutbol - 0 415

We take a look ahead to Saturday's Premier League clash between Crystal Palace and Burnley at Selhurst Park.


Crystal Palace: The 'Eagles' have no fresh injury concerns and could play the same side that claimed a creditable goalless draw with Manchester United last weekend. Christian Benteke (knee) remains sidelined, but Scott Dann and Connor Wickham are both pushing to be involved following lon lay-offs.

Burnley: James Tarkowski and Johan Berg Gudmundsson both return to the fray for the 'Clarets' following hernia surgery and illness respectively. Stephen Ward (knee) and Nick Pope (shoulder) remain out.


Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson:

"We have had chances at home, and created more chances than we have away. But we have missed most of them.

"We aren't conceding that many, but we do need to score more goals. We are conscious of that and with the great home support we get, the faith and belief from them, I will always believe home games give us a good chance to get wins."

Burnley boss Sean Dyche:

"No-one will ever put as much pressure on you as yourself. There's always pressure, that's the game that we're in.

"The belief has been strong here for a number of years. A lot of our performances this season have been very close. Last year we were on the right side of it."
