Malian Sako hands Palace narrow win over Burnley

Sean Dyche'We deserved a draw

Bakary Sako contributed the contest's solitary goal midway through the first half of what was an evenly-contested affair, in the process condemning the Clarets to their third consecutive defeat in the Premier League.

Burnley have gone six league matches without a win but remain seventh in the standings on 34 points from 23 games.

Former England manager Roy Hodgson replaced Dutchman De Boer but it was not until October 14 that Palace secured their first goal and first points of the season with a surprise victory over Chelsea.

"It's not easy because we have players out who have played a lot of games but we have other good players to come in and they are ready to do the job that the manager expects from them", Fosu-Mensah told the club's website. In the second he and Benteke worked very hard to disturb their centre halves and limit the number of long balls that were flying into our back four. "Second half, we really took it on today".

Dyche could be without midfielder Scott Arfield due to a slight hamstring strain as he takes his side back to Selhurst Park where they claimed their first and only away win in April last season.

"I have a very positive feeling about our group of players, we have a talented squad, as our results have shown, so I think we will continue to do well but we have to be on it every week". That's what's changed this season away from home - 17 points on the road is no mean feat.

The Canadian Arfield has just six months left on his current deal and he has reportedly attracted interest from the Hammers as well as Brighton and Crystal Palace. "The margins were tight when we were winning games and the margins are tight now".

The Burnley star has featured 15 times in the league this campaign as the Lancashire club have defied the odds to now reside in the top half of the table. Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend will look to inspire the home side by using their pace and ability on the ball to try and break down Burnley's low block, while James Tomkins will lead his back line and be tired of the Clarets counter-attacks.
