SunSport prediction

Burnley’s poor record on the road is set to continue at Selhurst Park.

Sam Allardyce has his Eagles playing solid football and has seen them put in solid performances against big sides in April.


Fact me

  • Crystal Palace have gone 10 league games unbeaten against Burnley on home soil (W4 D6 L0), keeping seven clean sheets in the process.
  • Burnley have won just four points from a possible 51 away from home in the Premier League this season (W0 D4 L13).
  • Sean Dyche’s side are currently level with their Premier League away record in 2009-10 (four points from 19 away games). The only team to have won fewer points away from home in a complete Premier League season are Derby County in 2007-08 (3).
  •  The Clarets have only ever gone one season in their history without winning an away league game – in 1902/03 in the second tier. They only have two away games left in 2016-17, including this match.

Sam Allardyce has turned Palace into a solid side

Sam Allardyce has turned Palace into a solid side
  • Burnley have lost 13 of their 15 Premier League visits to London (W0 D2). They’ve scored just eight goalsin the capital, with three of these coming in a single game against West Ham in November 2009 (3-5 defeat).
  •  Indeed, only Middlesbrough endured a longer wait for a Premier League win in the capital than Burnley’s current run – they went 17 games without victory before beating Spurs 3-0 in September 1998.
  • Christian Benteke has scored 14 Premier League goals this season for Palace – however, only 21% (3) of those have come at Selhurst Park.
  • Six of those 14 goals have been headed – no Premier League player has more this campaign (level with Fernando Llorente, Romelu Lukaku and Michail Antonio).
  • Wilfried Zaha has nine Premier League assists this season, the joint-most by a Palace player in a single Premier League campaign (also Wayne Routledge with nine in 2004/05).
  • Michael Keane is the only Burnley player to play every minute of their top-flight campaign this season (3060 minutes).
