ONE TO WATCH

ASHLEY BARNES

FORMER CLUBS – Paulton Rovers, Plymouth Argyle, Oxford United (loan), Salisbury City (loan), Eastbourne Borough (loan), Torquay United (loan), Brighton & Hove Albion

The striker has certainly done the rounds to get to the top division and recently made his 200th appearance for the Clarets after joining in 2014. The well publicised fact about the 31 year old is that he made an international appearance for Austria at Under 20 level, qualifying through his Grandmother.

KEY CLASH

JAIRO RIEDEWALD v ASHLEY WESTWOOD

Palace have been guilty of losing the midfield battle on too many occasions this season and Jairo is seen as the key, it is more a question of who should partner him. The Dutchman will be up against the much underrated Westwood who grabbed an assist in Burnley’s last visit to Selhurst.

PRE-MATCH FACTS

  • Burnley have failed to score in 7 of their last 9 away matches in the league
  • Palace last beat Burnley as Selhurst in December 2018
  • Burnley have not conceded against Palace in the last two meetings
  • In 7 of the last 8 meetings only one team have scored
  • Burnley are unbeaten in two games against Palace

PRE-MATCH STATS

  • GOALS – Wilfried Zaha (9 – 10th in PL)
  • ASSISTS – Andros Townsend, Eberechi Eze (3)
  • PASSES – Luka Milivojevic (784)
  • TACKLES – James McArthur (57 – 7th in PL)
  • TOUCHES – James McArthur (1034)
  • SHOTS – Wilfried Zaha (44 – 19th in PL)
  • SAVES – Vicente Guaita (73 – 8th in PL)

PREDICTION

The opposition come into this game off the back of a home draw against Brighton followed by a shock defeat to Championship side Bournemouth in the FA Cup. Meanwhile, Palace were handed a defeat at Leeds so neither side are in the greatest shape going into this match up but the Eagles must end the run of defeat to the Clarets.

FINAL SCORE: 2-1

BETTING ODDS

  • Home – 13/10
