Burnley 0 Crystal Palace 2

By Burnley FC
November 30 2019

Below-par Burnley opened the door for Palace to end a run of three straight defeats on a disappointing day at Turf Moor.

 Wilf Zaha gave the Eagles something to hang onto with his second goal of the season in first half stoppage time.

 And after Chris Wood spurned a glorious chance to turn the game on its head midway through the second half, Jeff Schlupp sealed Burnley’s fate with a late second.

 Robbie Brady made only his second start of the campaign, coming in to play on the right flank as Jeff Hendrick moved inside to cover the suspended Ashley Westwood.

 And a crunching, but fair challenge on Scott Dann inside the opening quarter hour showed the Irishman meant business.

 Meanwhile, as the sides probed for openings in the early exchanges, Jack Cork sent a sighter wide of goal and Luka Milivojevic curled a free kick over the bar from the corner of the penalty area.

 Dwight McNeil was next to try his luck, firing straight at Vicente Guaita from a central position.

 The best move of the half came on the half hour mark, when Brady exchanged passes with Wood and spotted Ashley Barnes in the box with a sublime ball.

 However, the Clarets striker was unlucky to see the ball cannon off his foot after taking the ball down with a clear sight of goal.

Poor display all round, I thought Drinkwater might have got a few minutes what was the point in having him sat on the bench?

Agree with you FC. Poor result.

Just what is the point of DD if you have him on the bench and don't use him. Rather give on elf the kids some match day experience.

Pope the sinner at the first, then Wood with a howling miss and Mee fluffing a clearance at the second and perhaps the keeper should have done better. Poor result for the Clarets but as Shearer said, just a bad day at the office.

Why does Pope try to save everything with his feet (or legs) Watch the goals against Sheff Utd the same thing happen today If he carries on like he does Hart will be back then heaven help us
