Crystal Palace vs Burnley live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV
Ebere Eze celebrates scoring for Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace welcome Burnley to Selhurst Park in the Premier League this afternoon.
Roy Hodgson’s side are once again faced with the task of conjuring inspiration in the absence of their talisman, Wilfried Zaha, who is recovering from a hamstring injury. The Eagles created desperately little against Leeds last time out, succumbing to a 2-0 defeat at Elland Road, while January signing Jean-Philippe Mateta had very little service to pounce upon up front.
Palace remain in a comfortable position in the table, though, with 14 points separating them from 18th placed Fulham heading into the weekend.
Burnley, meanwhile, are beginning to separate themselves from the relegation-threatened pack, even if their fate is still far from certain. Impressive victories against Liverpool and Aston Villa gave Sean Dyche’s side a much-needed morale boost, although they have taken just one point from their last three games. Much will rely on their output up front, with goals currently still in dire supply – the Clarets’ scored just 14 in 22 games representing the worst return in the league.
