Crystal Palace have surprised everyone with their turnaround following the arrival of Roy Hodgson in the hot-seat. This weekend, they have another opportunity to increase their point-tally as they host out-of-form Burnley at Selhurst Park.
The Eagles managed to pull off a remarkable draw against Manchester City in their last home game, and a repeat of that performance should be enough to land them three points against the Clarets.
In their last league game, Palace claimed a 2-1 win at Southampton, but they did suffer a setback during the midweek as they bowed out to Brighton and Hove Albion in FA Cup.
Overall, Palace have lost only once in their last six league games and currently sit in the 14th spot on the table.
The Clarets will come into this game without a win in their last five games. Despite their recent loss of form, Burnley sit seventh in the league table with 32 points. In their last game, they lost 1-2 to Liverpool because of an injury-time winner. Like Palace, they also bowed out of FA Cup during midweek as they lost 1-4 at Manchester City.
A top-four spot looks out of reach, but Burnley are still very much in contention of European places.
Last season, the Clarets completed a double over Palace, and earlier this season, they registered a 1-0 win at Turf Moor.
