Crystal Palace vs Burnley predictions for Saturday’s Premier League match at Selhurst Park. Palace have lost only one of their last 11 league games. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.


Crystal Palace put their much-improved Premier League form on the line against a Burnley side they have a poor recent record against.

As the stats below outline, Burnley have been something of a bogey team for the Eagles over the last five years when they have been in the same division.

Never was that more evident than last April when Burnley, who had not won away from home in the Premier League all season, pulled off a 2-0 success at Selhurst Park from out of nowhere for their only victory on the road in the whole campaign.

This term, the reverse fixture was the one that got Frank de Boer the sack after just four matches as Palace manager, when his side lost 1-0 at Turf Moor to leave them without a point or goal – a run that continued for a further three games.

But Roy Hodgson has turned the tide very well, lifting Palace out of the relegation zone with a spell of only one defeat in 11 and even becoming only the second team to take points off Manchester City with a 0-0 draw on New Year’s Eve.

Burnley have been difficult to beat too, hence their superb seventh position in the table, although they have gone six league and cup games without a win. 

The worry over that sequence is tempered, however, by the fact they have played four of the top six in those games and the only disappointing performance was in the 3-0 home loss to Tottenham.

On their travels, the Clarets have been terrific this season – in complete contrast to last term – and have collected points from their visits to Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton, plus four other grounds.

These teams’ respective recent form means Palace are understandable favourites here, but there is more than enough in Burnley’s head-to-head and away records to suggest the value is in siding with them to at least avoid defeat.

Crystal Palace vs Burnley stats


  • Burnley have won four of their last six matches against Crystal Palace, losing only one
  • Crystal Palace failed to score in four of those six games
