Crystal Palace vs. Burnley: Premier League – Match Preview

Crystal Palace and Burnley probably require one more win each to guarantee their Premier League safety ahead of the fixture on Saturday evening.

Palace were beaten 1-0 at home to title chasing Tottenham on Wednesday evening, thanks to a late Christian Eriksen goal.

They did record a third consecutive win at Anfield on Sunday though, with Christian Benteke scoring twice against his former side.

Burnley’s difficult run continued as they were beaten easily at home by Manchester United.

Goals in the first half from Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney means Burnley have just one win in 11 league games.

Premier League form: Crystal Palace W2 D1 L2; Burnley W1 D1 L3
Premier League top scorers
Crystal Palace – Christian Benteke 14 goals
Burnley – Andre Gray 8 goals

Team news
Palace are likely to be without Mamadou Sakho who suffered a knee injury in the loss to Tottenham.

With Scott Dann also out, Damien Delaney is set to partner Martin Kelly in the heart of Palace’s back four.

Burnley have their own defensive issues with Ben Mee likely to miss out here.

Joey Barton has been banned for 18 months for his gambling exploits, meaning Ashley Westwood could earn a rare start.

Expected starting XI’s
Crystal Palace (4-2-3-1): Hennessey; Ward, Delaney, Kelly, Schlupp; Cabaye, Milivojevic; Zaha, Puncheon, Townsend; Benteke
Burnley (4-4-2): Heaton; Lowton, Keane, Tarkowski, Ward; Boyd, Hendrick, Westwood, Brady; Gray, Vokes
