Crystal Palace vs Burnley predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture tonight

30views

This is a match that could decide which side out of Crystal Palace and Burnley emerge as a threat to claim a European place.

Both sides have already accumulated enough points to breathe easy after initially setting out back in August last year to beat the drop at first.

But now the winner here can draw level with seventh-placed Spurs – which was enough for a Europa League place last year.


Sean Dyche’s side experienced life on the continent two years ago with a play-off defeat to Olympiacos and will believe they will be better equipped to reach the group stages next season if they qualify.

Here are the predicted line-ups for the game at Selhurst Park.

Team news

Wilfried Zaha is nursing a knock but could still start after receiving treatment over the weekend, while the Eagles will check on Vicente Guaita and Christian Benteke. James Tomkins, Martin Kelly and Jeffrey Schlupp are all likely to miss out once more.

Ashley Barnes, Chris Wood and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are all set to miss out here, while Robbie Brady could return after missing the win over Watford with a groin injury. Jay Rodriguez came off against the Hornets with an ankle problem but should be fit enough to start.

Predicted line-ups

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; Ward, Cahill, Dann, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic, McArthur, Kouyate; Townsend, Ayew, Zaha

Burnley XI: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Rodriguez, Vydra

What are the odds?

Crystal Palace: 13/10

Draw: 21/10

Burnley: 12/5

Prediction

With eighth up for grabs here, both teams should see it as a wonderful opportunity to boost their hopes of claiming an unlikely European spot with safety assured for another season. Roy Hodgson’s side must bounce back after being handed a heavy beating by the champions and we’ll back them to emerge victorious here and pull level with Spurs in seventh, provided Zaha is passed fit. 2-1.
