Our live match stream is up and running ahead of Monday evening’s Premier League fixture Burnley v Crystal Palace, kicking off at 5:30pm BST.
You can keep an eye on the commentary as it happens below, but first, we take a preview into the fixture, the lineups, predictions and much more.
In each side’s previous game, Burnley could only draw 0-0 with Brighton. Danny Welbeck looked lively on his first start for Brighton but lacked ruthlessness in front of goal; Burnley remain winless this season.
Crystal Palace however smashed Leeds with a 4-1 win at home. Scott Dann scored his first Premier League goal since December 2017 in the fine victory; Patrick Bamford’s goal was disallowed by VAR for marginal offside call at 1-0; Palace moved up to sixth in the Premier League table.
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson said on Burnley: “Well it’s only a few games in and they’ve played one less than us.
“Last year they were below us for some time and then had a good spurt and finished above us.
“Zaha is in very good form at the moment, I’m pretty sure they’ll be well aware of that and trying to stop him.”
On Zaha’s renaissance in the centre: “I think that’s probably a little harsh on what he’s been doing for the last three years.
“He’s never really played as an out-and-out winger since I’ve been here.
“He’s always been dangerous, but now he’s attracting attention because of his goals and assists whereas in the past he helped us win games but may not have got on the scoresheet.”
On Burnley being tough to break down, Roy said: “That’s been my experience of them since I’ve been at Palace. Not just a tough game for us, but everybody.
“They’re very good at what they do. Most importantly of all, any result against them is going to be hard fought and difficult to earn.
“Everything’s possible. I know what it’s like to win against them and lose against them, and the challenge we need to be ready for.”
Roy said on being pleased with the first eight games: “Very pleased, it’s a good return. Try to keep our feet on the ground and remain modest.
“If you said at the start we’d have that, it’s a good return.
“But we have to look to the next eight games and see where that takes us.
“The common denominator is playing well every week and giving yourself the optimum chance to come away with some points and add to your total.”
When asked how difficult is it to get the ball rolling in bad points? Roy said: “I think it’s probably a bit easier for someone like Sean who’s been there for so long.
“When I came in and we were on seven games, zero points, we didn’t have the system we had today and had to introduce that.
“I don’t think that was our best season in terms of the football, even if it was with the points we had.
“Arguably we played long periods of last season better.
“Sean won’t be thinking this is a hopeless task, he’ll be waiting for the tide to turn and hopes that will be on Monday.”
Burnley boss Sean Dyche said on the upcoming game: “I think we’re showing some form of being back to what we should be,” said Dyche.
“We’ve got to create better quality of chances, I believe that, but I think the shape of the team and the energy of the side has been very good.
“We’re just beginning to form back to what we think we can be.
“Some key players are still missing or will get back to true fitness, but I think we’re beginning to show signs again.
“I have spoken to the players before the international break and during it with the players who were left here.
“It’s about going and making things happen. You can’t wait in the Premier League.
“You can’t wait in football in general, but you definitely can’t wait in the Premier League for things to come your way.
“We’ve got to make it come our way and make results come our way.
“That’s a clear focus from me going into the players and going into the next game.”
On having 17 days break, following the international break, he said: “I think it’s helpful.
“I’ve never questioned players going on international duty. I think it’s a great honour.
“But it does give us a focus on what we need to clear our minds to and the task in front of us.
“That hasn’t been lacking. I think there have been other things that have got in the way of our form.
“But we do have to take responsibility for what comes next, including myself of course.
“I think it does give us the clear view to get on with our workload and take it into the games and supply the performances that can get us results.”
Burnley Premier League form: LLDLLD
Crystal Palace Premier League form: LLDWLW
Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Stephens, McNeil; Barnes, Wood
Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Guaita; Clyne, Kouyate, Dann, Van Aanholt; Townsend, Riedewald, McArthur, Schlupp; Ayew, Zaha
He said: Like Sheffield United, Burnley have made an awful start to the season. Again, I don’t think they are as bad as their results suggest and a first league victory of the campaign is not far away.
Palace carry more of an attacking threat but this is unlikely to be an open game, full of free-flowing football. It will be a battle, and it is one that the Clarets can win.
Lawro’s prediction: 2-0
