Burnley vs Crystal PalaceEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Nov 4, 2023, Turf Moor
Burnley host Crystal Palace in a Premier League fixture on Saturday with both teams looking to snap out of poor runs. While both sides have found things difficult lately, the Clarets have actually been worse and should struggle against Palace, who have picked up some key results on their travels this season.
Things appear to be going from bad to worse for Burnley, who are still having a difficult time adapting to the quality in the Premier League. They have now joined the other newly promoted sides in the relegation zone with all three teams in danger of being cut adrift from the rest of the league.
Burnley suffered a 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth in their previous Premier League fixture despite taking an early lead through Charlie Taylor. Vincent Kompany’s team followed that result with a 3-0 hammering at Everton in a midweek Carabao Cup fixture.
There has been little home comfort for Burnley this season as they have lost all five of their Premier League matches at Turf Moor. Some of their heaviest defeats have come in front of their fans, including a 5-2 loss to Tottenham Hotspur and a 4-1 hammering against Chelsea.
Crystal Palace have also not been at their best in recent weeks having claimed just one win from their last six Premier League matches. They are currently in the bottom half of the standings but can climb as high as eighth if results go their way this weekend.
The Eagles travel to Turf Moor off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last time out in the Premier League. They fell two goals down before Jordan Ayew struck a consolation deep into added time.
The strange thing about Crystal Palace this season is that they appear to do their best work on their travels. Roy Hodgson’s men have already beaten newly promoted Sheffield United this season and can also count a 1-0 victory over Manchester United among their recent results on the road.
