Palace head to Turf Moor to take on Burnley in the early Sunday afternoon kick-off (13:30), aiming to secure their first Premier League points of the season.

The Clarets, who currently sit in 12th, have had a good start to the season picking up four points from the opening three games, including a shock win at Stamford Bridge on opening day.

However, Palace go into the game looking to claim their first points of the season following two home defeats against Huddersfield, Swansea, and a narrow loss against Liverpool in their one match away from home.

Burnley have won six of their eight top-flight encounters against the Eagles and the last meeting saw them come away from Selhurst Park with their first away win of the season with a 2-0 victory.

Manager’s view

Sean Dyche: “I don’t think it’s ever going to be massive jumps in finance here or alleged quality – I say alleged because there are no guarantees even if you pay £30m-plus on a player, it’s always going to be about edging forward and building, we’ve done it year after year. I’m measured on results, but the way the club has moved forward has been very good and effective to date.

“We’ve built again, the group is stronger and can take it forward again. We’ve lost two important players, but that has happened almost yearly, and we’ve come through those challenges before well,” Dyche told the Burnley Express.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Frank de Boer said: “I have a positive feeling from what I have seen in training this week. We know it takes time & it is a long term project we have here.

“I want to start seeing the performances I am expecting and once we start getting results it will give us all the confidence we need.”

De Boer on Sakho: “Delighted to have Mamadou and he was eager to come here & already has had an influence on the grass and in the dressing room.”

De Boer on Burnley: “We know they are a team who have played well and have options as to how to play but if we play as we can we will do well.”
