Crystal Palace vs Burnley – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips
Crystal Palace and Burnley are side-by-side in the bottom half of the Premier League. Both are outside the relegation zone for the moment, but if they keep playing as they have in the past two months, it won’t come as a big surprise if we see them reaching a new low this season. Last campaign, both teams won their home game and with the same score, 1-0.
Three points represent a long-time memory for the Eagles. More than two months have passed since Crystal Palace has obtained its last win in the Premier League. Hodgson’s men are 16th in the PL rankings, with 9 points from the first 13 matches, 8-17 aggregate.
Last weekend, Crystal Palace got a valuable draw on Old Trafford, 0-0 against Manchester United. The visitors came with the thought of defending and hoping for the best, but nearly produced a big surprise. Palace had some opportunities to score but failed to find the target on more than two occasions.
As you’ve probably guessed by now, Palace’s main problem is the attack. Eight goals scored in 13 games represent the worst offensive line in the Premier League (alongside Huddersfield Town). Crystal Palace played against Manchester United without a striker, but Ayew has yet to score this season, so his absence from the starting line-up wasn’t that much of a surprise. Benteke still has 1-2 months before he’ll be able to help his team. Until then, Crystal Palace will just have to rely on Zaha’s magic touches.
Line-up Crystal Palace
- Goalkeeper: Wayne Hennessey
- Backfield: Patrick van Aanholt, Mamadou Sakho, James Tomkins, Aaron Wan-Bissaka
- Midfield: Cheikhou Kouyate, James McArthur, Luka Milivojevic
- Forwards: Andros Townsend, Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Zaha
Burnley has conceded 15 goals in the last five Premier League matches, managing to score just three and getting one point. It happened at Leicester and we have serious arguments to sugget that it was a lucky draw, one that Burnley didn’t deserve.
Last weekend, Dyche’s men played at home against Newcastle United and although the visitors had two wins in a row, fans expected their favorites to finally grab a win after two months. When Mee scored in his own net in the 4th minute, it became clear that it could very well not be Burnley’s day. Clark made it 2-0 for Newcastle in the 23rd minute and Burnley fans were perplexed. Vokes gave some hope with his goal from the 40th minute, but the home side failed to deliver in the second half.
Burnley has just one victory on home ground this season. On the road, the same, one win, against Cardiff, Gudmundsson has suffered a calf injury and is questionable for the duel against Palace. Tarkowski is out, so Long should keep his spot in the starting 11.
- Goalkeeper: Joe Hart
- Backfield: Charlie Taylor, Ben Mee, Kevin Long, Matthew Lowton
- Midfield: Jack Cork, Steven Defour, Aaron Lennon, Robbie Brady
- Forwards: Ashley Barnes, Sam Vokes
