A very different Crystal Palace face re-match with Burnley FC

Crystal Palace 1 Burnley 0 Sako extends Eagles revival

"We stay in contact with all of the players and their agents; we try and have as open lines of communication as we can with all parties".

That explains why other clubs continue to be linked with a striker who up to this season has usually delivered goals, many from outrageous positions.

"Five league matches without a victory for Sean Dyche's Burnley shouldn't disguise their tremendous campaign so far".

"He has built up a very good team and over the last couple of years he has got them playing well and picking up points in the Premier League".

Midfielder Andros Townsend and defender Jeffrey Schlupp are the latest to be sidelined for Palace with the duo picking up ankle injuries in the FA Cup defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion last Monday.

With Ashley Barnes converting Burnley's only significant chance in the 25th minute, the Clarets prevented Guardiola's near-full-strength team from registering a shot on target during the opening 45 minutes.

Are Burnley there for taking? This could see Jairo Riedewald deployed in midfield while Sako could find himself starting in attack ahead of Christian Benteke.

The Senegal worldwide is yet to start a Premier League game for the Hammers this season, scoring four goals in the 17 games he has featured in this term.

The Clarets away form last season was bad and it was not until a 2-0 win at Selhurst Park on April 29 that they managed their first - and only away win of the campaign which helped secure them top-flight survival.

Given that Robbie Brady has been ruled out for the rest of this season, the six-month loan of Nkoudou makes ideal sense for all parties involved.

Indeed the Eagles have six players already ruled out for the Burnley game. It could be that the odds are in favour of Palace having much more to celebrate at the end of this month though.

"We go into this game with a long list of injuries that has decimated the squad".

Despite another heavy defeat at the hands of Manchester City which ended Burney's hopes of silverware for another season, Dyche praised the mental toughness of his players.

"With 17 points from 11 games, their away form has been their biggest improvement and you wouldn't be surprised to see them add to that at Selhurst Park".
