Burnley may benefit from Crystal Palace injuries

Clarets are great on the road

Matt Lowton celebrates Burnley's win at Everton

3pm Saturday

Crystal Palace came closer than anyone to ending Manchester City’s unbeaten league run but injuries are mounting and they look too short at home to well-organised Burnley.

A run of just one defeat in 11 league games has dragged Palace away from the drop zone but injuries to influential midfielders Andros Townsend and Ruben Loftus-Cheek could prove costly.

The visitors' results have dipped but they boast the sixth-best away form in the division with draws at Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United illustrating their mettle, and they can claim at least a point at Selhurst Park.
