Crystal Palace v Burnley: Eagles eye fifth straight win over Clarets

26 Jun 2020
Burnley FC v Crystal Palace - Premier League

Crystal Palace and Burnley are level on points and a victory for either team would take them up to eighth, above Arsenal and Sheffield United.

Palace are seeking to return to winning ways after their defeat to Liverpool ended a run of four straight victories.

Burnley are aiming to build on their 1-0 home win over Watford last time out.

Team news

Roy Hodgson is hopeful that Vicente Guaita (thigh), Wilfried Zaha (calf) and Christian Benteke (muscle) can be available for selection.

Martin Kelly, Jeffrey Schlupp and James Tomkins are still ruled out.

Burnley have doubts over Jay Rodriguez, who went off with a knock to the foot and a tight hamstring against Watford.

Ashley Barnes, Chris Wood, Robbie Brady and Johann Berg Gudmundsson remain sidelined.

Did you know?

Crystal Palace have won their last four Premier League encounters against Burnley by an aggregate score of 8-1.

Burnley have won only one of their last 13 away league matches against Palace, with that victory coming in April 2017.

Since their return to the Premier League in 2013, Palace have won only two of their 13 league matches played on a Monday (D5 L6), although those victories came against Manchester City and Arsenal.

Burnley have kept 12 Premier League clean sheets this season, their joint-most in a campaign (also 12 in 2017/18). They last kept more in a top-flight season in 1954/55 campaign, with 16.
