FT: Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace. Finally, Burnley have that first win of the season, thanks to a first home goal of the campaign. It was nervy, but they are now out of the bottom three, while a poor Palace stay 10th. Thanks for joining us. Goodbye.


Great defending from Pieters as he makes the tackle on Eze just at the right time.


Pope is back to his feet, thankfully for the home side.


Four minutes of added time. Could be more with Pope still down.


WHAT A SAVE! Brave goalkeeping from Pope, as he throws himself at Benteke's close-range prod to block with his left arm. He stays down afterwards, but he could have just won his side the match,


Townsend twists and turns, but his cross is blocked.


Lowton concedes a free-kick in a dangerous position here, earning himself a yellow card in the process.

Delay in play here as Brady is down receiving treatment.


Some typically heroic defending from Burnley here, but Palace are not offering a great deal still.

Replays suggest Wood was in fact onside, making Guaita's block from a close-range header all the more vital.


Wood again in the thick of the action, but Guaita makes another block. More than a hint of offside about that.


Wood races onto a ball over the top, but Guaita is off his line to clear well.

Best spell of the match for Palace here. They have to make this pressure count. Burnley standing firm.


Eze again the danger, but he cannot quite sneak the ball through for Van Aanholt.


SAVE! Too comfortable! Awful back pass from McNeil inexplicably sets Batshuayi through on goal, but Pope races from his line to narrow the angle and make a smart block.


Burnley enjoying some good possession here and looking comfortable.


Townsend is in space, has options either side, but the final pass is again poor.


They have been so, so poor.


CROSSBAR! Great football from Burnley, McNeil threads it through for Gudmundsson, who has time to pick his spot, but is denied by the crossbar. Big let off for Palace.


Delay in play here as Josh Brownhill receives some treatment.


Lovely pass from Eze through for Van Aanholt, who tries to square it for Batshuayi, but James Tarkowski makes a timely interception.


Long ball over the top brilliantly finds Rodriguez, who goes over looking for a foul, but nothing is given.


Wood swivels and shoots, but he is well offside.

  • 2nd Half

KICK OFF! We are back under way here. No changes for either side.


Must. Do. More.

  • End of 1st Half

HT: Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace. No added time here, with a rare Burnley goal giving them the advantage here.


Corner comes over, but Guaita gets his punch all wrong, and the ball loop back over his own crossbar.


Game is a little scrappy right now. Burnley on the attack.


Nice, deep cross into the middle from Andros Townsend but McNeil scrapes it away.


Jordan Ayew shows his strength to battle past his man, but elects to shot from the tightest of angles, straight at Pope.


McNeil has time to line one up from distance, but drags is well wide.


Another super cross, this time from Charlie Taylor, but Rodriguez's touch is too heavy and Guaita gathers.


Another long ball towards Wood has just too much on it.




Dwight McNeil gets to the byline, but he cannot get the cross into the middle.


Eze floats the ball forward in search of Batshuayi, but Mee flies in with a diving header to clear for the hosts.


Eze is the man who can unlock Burnley here. He is pulling the strings right now.


Again Eze is heavily involved as he feeds the ball into McArthur. He has Michy Batshuayi up in support but his pass across the face of goal just eludes the striker, who lunges in an attempt to bundle the ball home.


Nice ball over the top from Eberechi Eze into Van Aanholt, but the full-back's low cross is cleared.


SAVE! Yet another long punt forward is not dealt with by Palace, Rodriguez latches on to a flick on, but cannot beat Guaita with a toe poke at the far post.


Still Burnley press here. Long balls aplenty of causing all kinds of bother.


Corner for Burnley is whipped into the middle, but Vicente Guaita punches clear.


Palace pressing here, but they certainly look more rudderless without Zaha up top.


Capture the moment - a rare home goal.


Straight down the other end Ben Mee is the next player to get his clearance all wrong, but gets away with it.


Long ball into the Palace box causes problems, but Cheikhou Kouyate gets his clearance all wrong, Rodriguez flicks it on for Wood, who scores his second the season to get Burnley up and running at Turf Moor.

GGGGGOOOOOOOOOOAAALLLLL!!!! Burnley 1-0 Palace. At long last the Clarets have a home goal, Chris Wood with it!


Rodriguez gets in behind the Palace defence before trying to thread the ball into the path of Chris Wood, but Patrick van Aanholt spots the danger and comes across to make an important interception.


Offside flag is raised against Jay Rodriguez as Burnley press forward.


Nathaniel Clyne tries his luck from distance, but Nick Pope easily tips the ball over the top.


KICK OFF! The home side get us under way here.


So here we go. Burnley have scored fewer goals (3) and had fewer shots on target (19) than any other Premier League side this season, while they’re the only side yet to find the net at home so far in 2020-21. Time to change that. We are minutes away!


Sean Dyche speaks ahead of tonight's clash.


To say it has not gone to plan for Burnley this season is an understatement. Burnley are winless in their seven Premier League games so far this season (D2 L5), losing all three at Turf Moor. They’ve not failed to win any of their opening eight games to a league campaign since 2014-15, while they’ve never lost their first four at Turf Moor in a season before.


HEAD TO HEAD: Burnley won their last Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace (1-0 in June), ending a run of four straight league defeats against the Eagles. Palace have won three and lost two of their five Premier League away games against Burnley, winning the last two. Turf Moor is one of just three away grounds Palace have visited at least five times in the Premier League where they’ve won more games than they’ve lost (also Bet365 Stadium and Vitality Stadium).

Crystal Palace - Burnley

ZAHA MISSING WITH COVID SCARE: Wilfried Zaha has been left out of Crystal Palace's squad this evening with the club confirming he is in self-isolation having come into contact with someone with coronavirus. Zaha was set to make his 200th Premier League appearance but Michy Batshuayi comes in as Palace's only change to the side that won 4-1 at Leeds before the international break. Burnley have made two changes from the side that drew with Brighton two weeks ago, with Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Jay Rodriguez handed starting berths.


TEAM NEWS – BURNLEY: Pope, Lawton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil, Rodriguez, Wood… Subs: Peacock-Farrell, Barnes, Brady, Pieters, Bardsley, Vydra, Long. /// PALACE: Guaita, Clyne, Riedewald, Dann, Van Aanholt, Kouyate, McArthur, Kouyate, Townsend, Batshuayi, Eze… Subs: Butland, Ward, Sakho, Cahill, Mitchell, Schlupp, Benteke.


The teams are in. And there is a BIG OMISSION…


Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Burnley’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace from Turf Moor. To say this is a must-win match for Burnley is a slight exaggeration, but they need to find that first win sooner rather than later. High-flying Crystal Palace are far from an easy opponent, however, having won two of their last three league games.
