As we look ahead to the action from Selhurst Park, our in-house tipsters have the best betting tips and latest team news available for you in addition to the latest pre-match odds from popular online sportsbook, Betway.

Form

Burnley are deep in relegation trouble with just 13 points from their 25 matches so far. The Clarets are seven points from safety and without a win in seven league games. Vincent Kompany’s side were on the wrong end of a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Arsenal last weekend whilst their last away league game ended 3-1 in favour of league leaders, Liverpool.

What to expect from Oliver Glasner

Austrian, Oliver Glasner arrives at Selhurst Park following a relatively  successful two-year stint at German side, Eintracht Frankfurt. Glasner guided Eintracht Frankfurt to Europa League glory in his first season, eliminating Barcelona and West Ham United en route. In his second season, Glasner’s Eintracht Frankfurt reached the Champions League knockout stage after finishing above Sporting Lisbon and Marseille in Group D.

Following his appointment, Glasner was asked what Palace fans can expect from the team moving forward. He explained,

The philosophy is easy; it is scoring goals. As I tell the players, this is why we started playing football. No one went on the pitch when they were young to defend. We should never forget this.

The 49-year-old added,

The fans want to see us fighting and playing together to score a goal. Then, of course, we think about how we defend, whether a high press or a low block, but the philosophy is about scoring goals.

"We want to get as many points and wins as we can. It is very important that we play the same way at Selhurst Park or in the away games.

"We always need to trust in ourselves, our team-mates and what we do. It's not a sprint or a marathon but maybe [a 5k] or something like that. I am confident we will reach our goal and that we can improve as a team and individually."

Crystal Palace v Burnley: head-to-head

Crystal Palace earned a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture back in November. Jeffrey Schluop put The Eagles ahead midway through the first half with Tyrick Mitchell sealing the win in second half stoppage time.

However, Burnley are unbeaten in three visits to Selhurst Park. The corresponding fixture lat season ended in a 1-1 draw with Jeffrey Schlupp once again on target for Crystal Palace. 

Betting tips

Crystal Palace may not be in the best form but that new manager bounce should see them safely defeat struggling Burnley on Saturday afternoon. A home win is nicely priced at Evens whilst Crystal Palace to win to nil offers astonishing value having been boosted by Betway to 9/4.

Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze remain absent for Crystal Palace so the question about where the goals will come form remains a prominent one. Jordan Ayew scored against Everton on Monday evening and he looks a solid bet at 3/1 to score at any time.

Whilst not a prolific goalscorer, Jeffrey Schlupp has scored the opening goal in back-to-back games against Burnley. The Ghanaian international had fallen out of favour under Roy Hodgson but keep an eye out for the Crystal Palace team announcement. If Schlupp forces his way back into the Palace lineup he’ll provide incredible value in the any time scorer market. You can currently back Jeffrey Schlupp at 7/2 to score at any time.
