Crystal Palace 2 Burnley 0

A fifth defeat in six games left the Clarets in the Premier League’s bottom three as Crystal Palace eased their own concerns at the wrong end of the table. 

  Cardiff’s Friday night win over Wolves had pushed Burnley into the relegation places, with Palace only clear of the drop zone on goal difference.

 But it was the Eagles who took off with a first win since mid-September as they ended their Selhurst Park goal drought.

 Roy Hodgson’s side hadn’t scored from open play at home all season - and some of their finishing hinted at why.

 But goals in either half from James McArthur and Andros Townsend were still enough to secure the most comfortable of wins which should have been more emphatic.

 Joe Hart did his best to keep the Clarets afloat with a handful of fine saves.

 But even his efforts weren’t enough to bring an end to a worrying run for Sean Dyche’s side, who must now re-group for back-to-back home games against Liverpool and Brighton before two more tough trips to London to play Arsenal and Tottenham before Christmas.

According to unbelievable Jeff, Palace BATTERED Burnley.
BBC stats Palace 29 shots 9 on target, Burnley 4 shots 0 on target.

20mins gone at St Mary’s, Saints 2-0 up.

None of it makes good reading for The Clarets.

Looking really grim at the moment. Something has to change.

Other than Long and maybe Joey no one played near their real potential today. Painful to watch. Against Liverpool we lose nothing by having Heats, Tarks, Gibson, Vydra and barnes starting - its not as though we can expect much from Wednesday.

Agree Soapy.


Long, Tarks, Gibson

JBG, Hendrick, Defour, McNeil, Brady

Vydra, Wood (maybe Barnes)

It's a free hit - except we desperately need the points, any points, right now.
