Crystal Palace vs Burnley Predictions

  • Palace won 4-1 at Watford in midweek.
  • The Eagles are yet to lose to a team currently in the Premier League’s bottom five.
  • Burnley have managed just one away win in 12 attempts, with six defeats.
  • Wilfried Zaha has three goals in his last four games.

In-form pair meet at Selhurst Park

Burnley looked in real trouble just one week ago but back-to-back wins to nil have reignited their season ahead of a tough trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Clarets won 3-0 at Brighton last weekend and backed that up with a 1-0 midweek win over visitors Spurs.

Palace won 4-1 at Watford in their own midweek assignment, a result that probably ends any lingering fears of being dragged into the relegation scrap, and they can now start looking upwards rather than over their shoulders.

Palace have a virtually fully fit squad to select from but Burnley have a few issues, Johann Gudmundsson and Matej Vydra are set to miss out and Maxwel Cornet didn’t feature against Spurs due to an Achilles issue, while Charlie Taylor is unlikely to be involved but he is close to a return.

Home advantage gives Palace the edge

Burnley may have won their last two games but those were just their second and third Premier League victories of the season. Sean Dyche’s men were worthy winners at Brighton and took advantage of a poor display from Spurs in midweek, but Palace are playing with a bit of confidence right now and they rarely lose to teams in the bottom half.

Patrick Viera’s men sit in 11th place and have lost nine of their 26 games, with just two of those losses coming against sides currently below them in the table and they are yet to lose to a team in the bottom five.

Burnley will go into the game in confident mood and they know a win could potentially see them climb out of the bottom three. Palace have lost their last three at home but those defeats came against West Ham, Liverpool and Chelsea. The Eagles performed fairly well in all three of those defeats, and that suggests they can get the better of Burnley so a home win is the main bet in this fixture.

Clean sheets still an issue for Eagles

Palace have only managed one clean sheet in their last seven Premier League games and after starting the season with back-to-back shut-outs at home they’ve managed just two in 11 league assignments since.

Burnley have only failed to score in one of their last four trips so we may well see goals at both ends and a 3-1 win for the home side is the correct score selection, as Palace have scored at least three goals in each of their last three Premier League wins and they hit three against Burnley in a 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture in November.

Wilfried Zaha scored twice against the Hornets and has three goals in his last four games after grabbing a goal in the draw at Norwich earlier this month. The Ivorian looks to be getting back to his best after returning from AFCON duty and looks the standout candidate for an anytime goal.

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Butland, Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, McArthur, Kouyate, Gallagher, Olise, Mateta, Zaha

Burnley predicted lineup: Pope, Roberts, Mee, Tarkowski, Pieters, Lennon, Cork, Brownhill, McNeil, Weghorst, Rodriguez
