Previous encounters: Crystal Palace

Draws are usually the order of the day when the Clarets pay a visit to the Eagles, writes James Bird.

Last time out

A goal in each half was enough for Crystal Palace to see off the Clarets in August 2011 at Selhurst Park. It was the Eagles first win of the seaon. Jonathan Parr got the first after just 10 minutes when he headed home from a Ryan McGivern cross. Darren Ambrose would come close to adding to the home side’s lead but they wouldn’t get a second until Owen Garvan converted a penalty in the second half following a Ben Mee foul. The game would end on a sour note for the Clarets as second half substitute Marvin Bartley was dismissed in the final minute.

One for us

You have to go way back to December 2001 to find a Claret win at Palace. An Ian Moore brace was enough that day to see the Clarets take all three points but they have had no such luck since then.

One for them

Clarke Carlisle was sent off after just six minutes in 2005 before Palace ran riot against the Clarets in a 5-0 win. Ben Watson converted the resulting penalty before Victor Moses doubled the advantage two minutes later. Tom Soares ensured that the home side went into the break with a solid lead before Scott Sinclair and Clinton Morrison put the game beyond doubt in the second half. The result completed a turn around for the Eagles who looked relegation candidates when Neil Warnock took the helm in the previous October before eventually sealing a play-off berth against the Clarets.

Worth noting.

  • The Clarets haven’t won in eight encounters at Selhurst Park. There have been five draws during that run, giving the Clarets five points from a possible 24.
  • Julian Speroni has been a constant thorn in Burnley’s side. Expect to see him line up between the sticks yet again.

Can the Clarets end the eight game streak winless streak at Selhurst Park? Let us know in the comments.
