Crystal Palace slipped up against Spurs on Wednesday as they went down 1-0 to a part-wonder strike, part-goalkeeping mistake. That result was harsh on Big Sam’s boys though as they could have quite easily taken three points against the league’s form side. Wilfried Zaha impressed again and his team’s potent attack should have no problems this weekend against the division’s worst away team. This is Burnley’s penultimate road game of the season and they are still without a win! They’ve lost 13 of 17 matches and three of their four points came against sides currently in the bottom-four.
While Palace might have been considered a bottom-four side when Allardyce took over they are by no means that any more. They’ve won six of their last nine Premier League matches to move up to 12th in the table – seven points clear of safety. They will be full aware that a victory here would guarantee their survival and this is a great opportunity to put on a show in front of their fans.
We could well see goals here and we wouldn’t put anyone off a home win and over 2.5 goals when the market gets a little more liquid but there’s great value on a Palace win against a poor travelling Burnley side.
