Burnley have begun the season indifferently, but their defence remains resolute. They started the season by making a huge statement of intent against Chelsea after they stunned the defending champions and ran out 3-2 winners.
However, they failed to follow that up with another victory over West Brom before they managed to draw away to Tottenham. Sean Dyche’s team are solid when they play at home and their home form saved them from relegation last season as they won only one game away.
Crystal Palace manager Franck De Boer is close to getting the sack at Selhurst Park. The Dutchman has not won any points so far, and his team has not scored any goals nor kept a clean sheet.
However, with the signing of Mamadou Sakho from Liverpool, they might be tight at the back for this game. De Boer is insistent that he will not change his team’s style of play and we see them struggling in this game again.
