Crystal Palace vs Burnley: Top free betting tips

Crystal Palace are set to face Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon in what will be Oliver Glasner's first match in charge of the home side. Both teams are battling against relegation this season but Burnley are in far deeper trouble as they are currently seven points away from Everton in 17th place. Can they take home a much-needed three points from Selhurst Park on Saturday? Check out our Crystal Palace vs Burnley prediction below.

Match result prediction: Crystal Palace to win

Everyone in football knows all about the new manager bounce and we believe Crystal Palace will be the beneficiaries of the phenomenon this weekend. Selhurst Park will be bouncing after a depressing season and that energy should spur the players on to three points. Glasner arguably has the perfect opponents for his first game in charge as Burnley have picked up just two points in their last seven Premier League matches.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Both Crystal Palace and Burnley have struggled in recent weeks in terms of results but neither side have been particularly poor in front of goal. Burnley have managed to find the back of the net on visits to the Etihad Stadium and Anfield in recent weeks while Crystal Palace have scored at least one goal in nine of their last ten Premier League matches.

Correct score prediction: Crystal Palace 2-1 Burnley

We are backing Crystal Palace to win against Burnley by a solitary goal on Saturday to kick the Glasner era off in the best possible way. The appointment of a new manager doesn't change the fact that their best two attacking players, Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze, are injured so we don't expect a complete hammering.

Crystal Palace v Burnley team news

Crystal Palace predicted lineup vs Burnley

New manager, Oliver Glasner, has traditionally always played with a back five so we expect Palace to line up in this way on Saturday. Unfortunately for the new boss, five players will be definitely be missing from the Palace squad this weekend and there are doubts about another two. The five who will definitely miss out are Michael Olise, Eberechi Eze, Cheick Docouure, Rob Holding and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi while the two who are touch-and-go are Marc Guehi and Will Hughes.

Johnstone – Munoz, Ward, Richards, Andersen, Mitchell – Wharton, Lerma – Ayew, Mateta, Edouard

Burnley predicted lineup vs Crystal Palace

Burnley's season went from bad to worse in many ways last weekend. First of all, they lost 5-0 at home and second of all, they lost another key player, Aaron Ramsey, until the end of the season. Ramsey joins Luca Koleosho, Nathan Redmond and Lyle Foster on the list of players who more than likely won't play again this season. Jordan Beyer will also miss the match on Saturday but his return shouldn't be too far away.

Trafford – Assignon, Esteve, O'Shea, Taylo – Gudmundsson, Berge, Brownhill, Odobert – Amdouni, Fofana
