PREDICTION
Burnley are just starting to slip away from the top six and the fact that they have not won any of their last five league matches cannot go without notice. They travel to Selhurst Park to face a Crystal Palace side who have lost just won of their last half dozen league outings. Burnley won here late last season, but they may well struggle to repeat that feat this weekend.

MEMORABLE MEETING
It took until April of last season for Burnley to record their first Premier League away win of the 2016-17 campaign, one that came at Selhurst Park with goals from Ashley Barnes and Andre Gray clinching victory for the Clarets. Not only that but it also moved Sean Dyche’s men a huge step closer to securing their top-flight status for another campaign.
