Burnley slump in EPL continues with 1-0 loss at Palace

Burnley slump in EPL continues with 1-0 loss at Palace

"Credit to Burnley because they are doing very well but for us it's another very important game and we will be going into it looking to get maximum points which is no different to any other week".

Clarets manager Sean Dyche said: "It's the simplicity of Palace's play".

"The only thing that interests me is being one place about the relegation zone and anything else would be a huge bonus, especially after being four games and four defeats with no goals when I came".

"I am very careful about statistics and I have no desire to start celebrating here in the middle of January".

West Ham and Crystal Palace are said to be interested in his signature, though the Daily Record are reporting that Rangers are also monitoring the situation in the hope that Arfield would prefer a return to his native Scotland.

Sako justified his first league start since September with an energetic and purposeful performance against a Burnley defence that had conceded only 19 goals in their past 22 league games prior to this afternoon.

Crystal Palace took a further step towards Premier League survival with a 1-0 victory over Burnley which extended the visitors' winless run to seven games.

The versatile man insists that he's had a good time at Palace despite the change of managers and has continued to put in encouraging displays that'll surely catch Mourinho's eye. "They were better than us in the first half, not by miles".

"The margins were tight early in the season when we were winning a lot of games, and the margins are tight now". Then the second half we were decent, and probably deserved to scratch a draw in the end.

Fosu-Mensah, 20, is relishing his season-long loan spell from Manchester United, having made 17 appearances across all competitions for Palace so far this season compared to just 11 senior appearances for United in the entirety of the last campaign. "I'm certainly not disappointed by the look at the league table". "This morning he went in and we had the results of the MRI scan that showed that nothing was damaged and it was just muscle fatigue, and we persuaded him to be on the bench in case we needed him". The Premier League is not like that.
