“Burnley” – “Crystal Palace”: quotes from bookmakers
In eight games, Burnley has scored just two points, the team’s worst start since returning to the Premier League. But Sean Deich is still calm. The head coach of “Burgundy” is confident that the team will come out of the bottom of the table and pay attention to the progress shown in previous matches. Burnley performed really well against West Bromwich (0-0) and Tottenham (0-1), in which he had to score at least four points. But Daich urgently needs to do something about the attack. Burnley has scored only three goals this season, the worst in the league, and has never scored in the previous four games.
Before meeting “Burnley” with an uncomfortable opponent. Crystal Palace have beaten Burgundy in four of the last five matches, three of which are clean sheets. Roy Hodgson’s team has exceeded all expectations this season. The Eagles have had four wins in eight games, putting the Londoners now in a comfortable place in the first half of the table. But the global conclusions and far-reaching forecasts for Crystal Palace should be put off. If you look at the numbers, the team has hardly changed from last season. Noticeable progress can be seen only in the percentage of strike conversion to goals – this figure increased from 8.2% to 17.9%. This suggests that this season the “eagles” are scoring points in less obvious situations, and in some episodes the Londoners have been genuinely lucky. Take, for example, the previous game against Leeds – in fact everything went to the gates of the peacocks: the first goal was scored after the set, the second was the result of the individual agility of Eberechi Eze, who made an excellent free-kick, and the third was generally a tragicomedy. the rival winger Elder Costa played a leading role.
Burnley v Crystal Palace: indicative lineups
The guests are approaching the match in a fighting squad. Yes, he is disqualified – Luka Milivoevich. But this season, the Serb does not have such a strong influence on the team’s performance as in the past. The central field is now run by Jairo Riedewald and James MacArthur. As for the changes, it is possible that Gary Cahill will return to base. Although in his absence, the Kuyate-Dunn pair did very well in the center of defense with their functions and tasks. Another change Hodgson could make to the attack with Wilfried Zaa, Jordon Ayew, Misha Batshuai and Christian Benteke take two positions.
Burnley injuries have been observed since the end of last season, but the situation is gradually returning to normal. James Tarkovski, Ashley Barnes and Ben Mee returned to service one by one, all that remains is to wait for Jack Cork. Charlie Taylor, Eric Peters and Phil Bardsley, whose participation in the game against Crystal Palace is questionable, should be ready to fight, says Sean Dych. The main coach’s dilemma is choosing a right midfielder: Johan Gudmundsson and Robert Brady returned from the national team with micro injuries that could prevent them from playing for Crystal Palace. Therefore, it is possible that the Burnley coach will have to resort to alternative options. One is the transfer of Eric Peters to the right flank of midfield, which Deich has done many times. Another option might be Jay Rodriguez, who lost his seat in the “clash” after Ashley Barnes recovered.
“Burnley” – “Crystal Palace”: the author’s prediction
I hate to forecast for a sum below (2.5), but in this pair it seems that many goals should not be expected. It’s the teams’ defensive style and statistics from previous matches (in just one of the last seven games, “Burnley” with “Crystal Palace” swapped goals and scored at least three goals). However, due to the very low odds, playing for less than (2.5) is not worth the candle. Therefore, I propose this option – “Burnley” will not lose + less in total (3.5).
