Crystal Palace vs Burnley prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out tonight?

42views

Crystal Palace and Burnley battle it out at Selhurst Park tonight with plenty still at stake.

That’s despite both teams already achieving their primary goal for the season: Premier League safety.

Having both built 15-point cushions to the drop zone, attention is now turning towards qualifying for Europe.

A win here for either side will bring them level with Spurs in seventh, which was enough for a Europa League place last season.

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.
