Burnley will be looking to win for the first time this month when they travel to Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Clarets travel to Selhurst Park having not won a game since their 3-2 victory over Aston Villa at the end of January.

Sean Dyche’s side established a cushion between themselves and the Premier League relegation zone with back-to-back wins over Liverpool – ending their unbeaten Anfield streak – and Aston Villa last month.

However, things haven’t been as simple since then, with league defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City, a draw with fellow strugglers Brighton and being dumped out of the FA Cup midweek by managerless AFC Bournemouth.

Crystal Palace meanwhile haven’t been their usual selves in the absence of Wilf Zaha, which comes as no surprise.

Palace have lost 17 of the last 19 games where Zaha hasn’t played and have failed to score in 15 of those – their latest result a 2-0 defeat at Leeds on Monday night.

Roy Hodgson is likely to be without his talisman once again for this game with Burnley and the Eagles’ injury list is a lengthy one.

James McCarthy and James McArthur are both major doubts to feature on Saturday, whilst Joel Ward, Jeff Schlupp, Mamadou Sakho, Nathan Ferguson and James Tomkins are all definite absentees.

Burnley have several players who are pushing for inclusion but might not make the matchday squad – amongst them are striker Chris Wood, goalkeeper Nick Pope, midfielders Josh Brownhill, Jack Cork and Robbie Brady and defender Charlie Taylor.

Crystal Palace v Burnley is a 3pm kick off on Saturday 13th February.
