Burnley slump in EPL continues with 1-0 loss at Palace

Burnley slump in EPL continues with 1-0 loss at Palace

Hodgson said: "It changes quickly".

"The only thing that interests me, and I've said it right from the start, is where we are on the final day of May".

Bakary Sako's first-half strike was enough to lead Crystal Palace to a 1-0 victory over Burnley.

Sako scored the victor against Burnley by side-stepping defender Phil Bardsley and driving a powerful shot past goalkeeper Nick Pope for his seventh goal of the season.

Although Crystal Palace lost to Brighton in their FA Cup tie this past weekend, their league form remains solid with a win over Southampton in their past match and a 0-0 draw against the mighty Manchester City before that. We didn't really deal with that. He would have played today given the injuries we had, but he played on merit and chipped in with a good goal. In the second he and Benteke worked very hard to disturb their centre halves and limit the number of long balls that were flying into our back four.

The former Huddersfield Town midfielder has also been linked with three clubs in the English top flight. There were impressive performances all over the park.

Christian Benteke headed a Milivojevic corner over the Burnley crossbar on 28 minutes, as Sam Vokes flashed a header, from a Johann Berg Gudmundsson delivery, just wide with the half winding down, ahead of a finger-tip save from a Barnes volley.

Burnley were better in the second half, upping the combativeness and the crosses without ever quite finding the imagination necessary to unpick Palace's well-drilled resolve.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche took time after Saturday's match to pay tribute to Hodgson and his staff. They are still in seventh place in the table after all. Palace are probably slight favorites at home, but Burnley's away record has been excellent for most of the season, and they'll be confident they can get a result.

Dyche was asked about his thoughts on Hodgson's achievements and the younger Englishman did not hold back in his praise of the 70-year-old. "He is doing terrific". We were chewing the fat over the realities and the non-realities of the modern game. It's not a surprise to me that Roy's work and the coaches' work has progressed the team. He's settled it down nicely.
