Crystal Palace v Burnley: match preview

Six of Crystal Palace’s eight wins this season have been recorded against teams with fewer points than them so Roy Hodgson’s side, while expecting to beat Burnley, have a decent body of evidence to suggest they can bounce back from falling flat against Leeds. The obligatory – Wilfried Zaha missing out hurts Palace’s chances – message must be raised here. Burnley have the worst attack in the league with 14 goals but have conceded the same amount as Liverpool in fourth. Sean Dyche will sense an opportunity to add to the eight-point gap over Fulham in 18th. Graham Searles
