Burnley will host Crystal Palace at Turf Moor in this round 12 encounter in the Premier League. The home team is playing better recently, but they still can’t get rid of the group holding the red light. Welcoming an opponent who does not have the same stability as Crystal Palace, the hope for Burnley to retain 3 points is wide open.
Burnley entered this match after successfully holding Chelsea 1-1 in the last round. Despite having to be a guest at Stamford Bridge and conceding first, this team fought hard to get the equalizer of midfielder Matej Vydra. Not long ago they also defeated Brentford with a strong score of 3-1 at home. Thus, in the last 5 rounds Burnley received only 1 defeat against Man City, the rest won 1 and drew 3.
After a total of 11 appearances this season, Burnley won 1, drew 5 and lost 5. This is a pretty bad performance and of course Burnley has to accept standing in the group holding the red light. Specifically, this team currently only brings back 8 points and ranks 18th in the table. At home this season, Burnley won 1, drew 2 and lost 2 after 5 times welcoming guests. Burnley won all of the last 3 confrontations with Crystal Palace and did not even concede a goal. That will be the basis for the Turf Moor team to aim for the second victory in the Premier League this season.
Before entering a 2-week break to give way to the national team, Crystal Palace had a 2-0 victory at home when welcoming Wolves. A round away, “Great Bang” also got a similar victory when beating Man City right at Etihad. Thus, Crystal Palace is on a 6-match unbeaten streak, including the last 2 wins and 4 consecutive draws before. Crystal Palace’s last defeat was against Liverpool in September 2021.
They are ranked in a position in the middle of the table and are only 5 points away from the group that can attend the Europa League. Specifically, after 11 rounds, Crystal Palace won 3, drew 6 and lost 2. They are currently in 10th place with 15 points, 5 points behind Arsenal in 5th place. Although they are in better form than the opponent, away from Crystal Palace, Crystal Palace only won 1 match from the beginning of the season, drew 2 and lost 3.
