Palace Aiming To Make Turf Moor Their Happy Place

With another international break out of the way along with the end of pay-per-view for now, we are free to enjoy the return of Premier League football, and the next stop for the Eagles is Turf Moor to take on a struggling Burnley in what will be the fiftieth match up between the two sides.

ONE TO WATCH

JOSH BROWNHILL

FORMER CLUBS – Warrington Town, Manchester United, Preston North End, Barnsley (loan), Bristol City

The 24-year-old midfielder has taken the long route to the Premier League after the disappointment of not breaking through at Old Trafford. After making a name for himself at Deepdale and Ashton Gate, Brownhill signed for Burnley during the January transfer window at the start of the year. He has not had much of an opportunity to play in his preferred central role for the Turf Moor outfit, instead being played out wide by Sean Dyche.

KEY CLASH

JAIRO RIEDEWALD v ASHLEY WESTWOOD

The Dutchman is expected to make his 36th Premier League appearance in a season that he looks to have made his breathrough into the starting line up after patienty waiting for his moment. The 24-year-old will be up against former Villa midfielder Westwood who in contrast has made over 200 appearances in the top division.

PREDICTION

The lack of goalscoring for the hosts suggests they will likely get on the scoresheet against Palace but with both sides suffering a similar amount of absentees, it will likely be a tight contest. The hosts will be targeting some points from this game considering their poor start to the season but we expect the Eagles to have just enough to pick up a fifth win of the season.

FINAL SCORE: 1-2
