Crystal Palace vs Burnley

, KO: 15:00 Feb 24, 2024, Selhurst Park
Burnley

Crystal Palace begin life without Roy Hodgson as they welcome Burnley to Selhurst Park for a Premier League fixture on Saturday. The Eagles will be counting on some new manager bounce and having shown some decent form at home lately, they should have the upper hand over their troubled visitors.

Crystal Palace are heading into a new era following the departure of manager Roy Hodgson. Oliver Glasner is the new man at the helm and the Palace faithful will be hoping the German brings some European flavour to Selhurst Park having previously won the Europa League with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The first task for Glasner will be to turn Crystal Palace's form around as they have picked up just one win in their last seven matches across all competitions. The German was watching in the stands as they played out a 1-1 draw at Everton last Monday, with Jordan Ayew getting their goal.

It is not all doom and gloom for Crystal Palace as they have done some decent work at Selhurst Park in recent weeks. The Eagles have picked up two wins in their last three Premier League home matches, although they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight fixtures in front of their fans.

Burnley travel to Selhurst Park off the back of a 5-0 home defeat by Arsenal in their previous Premier League fixture. They were no match for the title chasing Gunners and failed to muster a single attempt on target throughout the encounter.

It has been a difficult return to the Premier League for Burnley, who have spent much of the campaign in the relegation zone and are currently seven points from safety. Vincent Kompany’s men are winless in their last eight matches, suffering six defeats in that run.

Burnley have also found things difficult on their recent travels, losing their last four away matches. They head into Saturday’s clash with successive 3-1 defeats at Manchester City and Liverpool in their last two fixtures on the road.

How the bookies view it

Crystal Palace have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 19/20 by bet365 to claim the win. A victory for Burnley is valued at 16/5 by Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 5/2 by William Hill.

Head to head

Crystal Palace have a 16-12 advantage with 13 draws from 41 previous matches against Burnley. The Eagles also claimed a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in November with Jeffrey Schlupp and Tyrick Mitchell getting the goals.

Players to watch

Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew have caught the eye for Palace and both men will be the ones to watch. Mateta is priced at 23/10 with William Hill to score anytime while Unibet is offering 7/2 on Ayew in the same market.

Zeki Amdouni could be worth keeping an eye on for Burnley as he looks to add to his four Premier League goals. The forward is priced at 9/2 by William Hill to get on the score sheet on Saturday.
