Burnley vs Crystal PalaceEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Nov 20, 2021, Turf Moor
Crystal Palace will be aiming to continue their steady rise up the English Premier League table. They travel to Burnley, who have also been on the rise lately and both teams look set to cancel each other out.
After a difficult start to the season, Burnley appear to be slowly finding their feet having suffered just one defeat in their last three Premier League matches. Although, they remain in the bottom three, recent results will give them plenty of confidence.
Burnley claimed their first win of the season at the end of October after recording a 3-1 win over Brentford. Sean Dyche’s men followed that up with another solid display to hold Premier League leaders Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Key to Burnley’s performances this season is Maxwell Cornet, who has arguably been their best player. Starting out in the wide areas, the former Lyon player has featured alongside striker Chris Wood up front in recent weeks and both men appear to be forming a decent attacking partnership.
The international break could not have come at a worse time for Crystal Palace, who have begun to find their feet under manager Patrick Vieira. They have won their last two matches and are now in the top 10.
The spark for Crystal Palace appears to be that impressive 2-0 victory away at Manchester City at the end of October. They followed that up with another 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers right before the international break.
Those two results mean Crystal Palace are now unbeaten in their last six Premier League matches, although they have been held to four draws in that run. They remain suspect defensively, particularly on the road where they have conceded 10 goals in their last five away matches.
