Reason for Burnley vs Crystal Palace Predictions
Scoring goals is one of the biggest problems that Burnley have. The hosts netted just three this season with 12 conceded. The two draws they have managed were both of the goalless variety. Their home form isn’t helping them at all this season. Three games have produced three losses, and their fans are still waiting to see them score at Turf Moor. Burnley haven’t scored in their last four league games, but aside from a 3-0 loss to Chelsea, only one goal has been scored in the other three. There have been under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last eight home league games but just one victory. That was last season against Watford, who went on to be relegated. Josh Brownhill plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Chris Wood is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Crystal Palace has 13 points from their opening eight league fixtures. They tend to lack consistency, though, with three wins, one draw, and three losses. Two of the last three league games have been won, though, and this fixture gives them the chance to go on a decent run. Following this, they host Newcastle before traveling to West Brom. They have a good chance then of securing a high league position after 11 matches of the season. The two recent wins have come against two of the promoted sides. The visitors won 2-1 at Fulham and beat Leeds 4-1 at home. That was only the second time in 43 home league games they’d managed to score at least four goals in a home fixture. Away form has seen them win at Old Trafford this season but also lose 4-0 at Chelsea and 2-0 away at Wolves. Eberechi Eze shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Wilfried Zaha is the best player on the team, and it will be challenging to keep him because many great clubs want him. His greatest virtue is speed.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, although both sides haven’t been too efficient so far in the season.
