Did you know?

Burnley are seeking to avoid going winless in their opening eight matches of a league campaign for the first time since 2014/15, while they've never lost their first four at Turf Moor in a season before.

Crystal Palace have won three and lost two of their five Premier League trips to Burnley, winning the last two. Turf Moor is one of only three away grounds the Eagles have visited at least five times in the Premier League where they've won more matches than they've lost, along with bet365 Stadium and Vitality Stadium.

Palace have scored eight first-half goals in the Premier League this season, the second highest figure with only three teams netting more (Liverpool, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur, 10). In 2019/20, the Eagles scored only 10 times before half-time in the competition.

Wilfried Zaha has seven goal involvements in his eight league appearances this season (five goals and two assists), as many as he managed in 38 matches in the competition last season (four goals and three assists).
