Tip Burnley - Crystal Palace
Turf Moor is the venue for Burnley's meeting with Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday night. The Clarets are in the desperate position of 19th going into this match after taking only two points from their opening seven matches. Their guests are in a much loftier dwelling, 13 points from eight matches putting them eighth in the table. Each of the two points that Burnley have won was the product of a goalless draw. Given how poorly they are performing in front of goal, it seems like the only type of realistic result from which Burnley can profit. They have scored one goal in their last seven matches in all competitions. Palace know all about troubles in front of goal. Last season, they scored the second-lowest number of goals (behind Norwich), 31 in 38 games. This time around, however, they have comparatively goal-crazy with 12 in eight games. Their last outing was a 4-1 win over Leeds United, a performance that exhibited their attacking potential with summer signing Eberechi Eze opening his club account.
Away from home, Palace have been in patchy form, winning two and losing two of their four games on the road. Their first victory was against Manchester United, a poorly-organised team who were repeatedly exposed on the counter-attack, while their second win came at Fulham, the opposition defence inexperienced at this level. Burnley should be able to cope better. However, it's important to note that Palace have a terrific record against Sean Dyche's team in recent seasons, winning four of their last five meetings, including the last two visits to Turf Moor. It hasn't been all one-way traffic with Burnley winning the most recent encounter. Six of the last seven meetings between the teams have featured fewer than three goals. The odds on that trend continuing are low, so we suggest backing against both teams scoring, as has also been the case in six of the last seven meetings.
