Last Saturday, Burnley’s problems worsened as they lost to Bournemouth, their Premier League competitors. They take on Crystal Palace, a team that is keen to get back to triumph after a trio of matches lost. This game will take place on Saturday, October 4th at Turf Moor in Burnley.
Burnley’s boss, Vincent Kompany, would’ve liked to think that their early-October 2-1 victory over Luton Town would serve as a launchpad for a winning streak. But since then, the Clarets have lost a total of 4 consecutive matches. The devastating 3-0 defeat to Everton during the EFL Cup 4th round on Wednesday came after the team’s 2-1 setback to Bournemouth within the Premier League the previous weekend. Given that Burnley have the opportunity to solely focus on their efforts to escape the Premier League drop zone before the holiday season, a few may view their cup departure as a godsend. With only 4 points earned in their initial ten games of the campaign, Kompany’s team is currently sitting 19th in the standings, just 2 points outside of safety. Most teams would be happy to play again on home ground, but Burnley has had a terrible start to the season at Turf Moor, dropping their first 5 home Premier League games by an average of 16-4.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, has lost their previous 3 games as well. At Selhurst Park, they fell short of current Premier League leaders Tottenham 2-1 after losing to Nottingham Forest 0-0 and Newcastle 4-0, despite a subsequent valiant comeback. That was the team’s first score in 6 Premier League games, though, thanks to a late strike from Jordan Ayew. They have had trouble missing their two injured forwards, Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze. Palace has not defeated Burnley in their previous 5 meetings, but they have gained 7 points from the previous 4 top-flight excursions to Turf Moor, scoring at least 2 times during 3 of those outings.
