With influential attacking players missing from both sides, Al Hain-Cole expects goals to be hard to come by for both the Eagles and Dyche’s men
Crystal Palace and Burnley both have the chance to move level on points with seventh-placed Tottenham when they meet at Selhurst Park on Monday.
Only goal difference separates the two teams currently occupying 10th and 11th position in the Premier League table, who find themselves within touching distance of the European qualification places.
Crystal Palace vs Burnley Latest Odds
Having come out on top in each of the last four matches against this opposition, the Eagles are bet365’s 13/10 (2.30) favourites to extend that winning streak here.
Sean Dyche’s men bounced back from their 5-0 thrashing at Manchester City to overcome Watford 1-0 last time out, but are 12/5 (3.40) outsiders to follow that up with another victory.
There have been no draws in any of the last eight encounters between this pair, but you can get odds of 21/10 (3.10) on them cancelling each other out in this one.
Crystal Palace vs Burnley Team News
Wilfried Zaha, Christian Benteke and Vicente Guaita will be hoping to return from injury, although James Tomkins, Martin Kelly and Jeffrey Schlupp are definitely ruled out.
Ashley Barnes and Ben Gibson are unavailable, while Jay Rodriguez, Robbie Brady, Chris Wood and Johann Gudmundsson will face late fitness tests.
Crystal Palace vs Burnley Preview
Already without main strikers Barnes and Woods due to injuries, the loss of Rodriguez in the Watford game served as a major blow for a Clarets team that has failed to score in three of their last four matches against this opposition.
Similarly, Roy Hodgson will be praying that Zaha returns to provide some inspiration for a team that has scored the fewest goals on home turf of any Premier League team this season – hitting just 12 in 15 fixtures.
