Burnley vs Crystal Palace H2H: Potential MVP

Jordan Ayew comes on the back of a first goal of the season. The 32-year-old might have had to wait 10 matches to get his opening goal of the season, but this might unlock a string of goals from the forward. Even in the middle of a goal down, Jordan Ayew has been able to hit decent numbers of two shots per match.

Ayew produced a stellar display in the 2-1 loss against Tottenham. Even though the quality of the opposition is not on par, Jordan Ayew is still expected a tough match. The Ghanaian has previously come up against on nine occasions, but he has never been able to get that crucial goal against this opponent.

Burnley: Players in focus

Zeki Amdouni on sparkling form

Luca Koleosho needs to step up

The absence of top scorer Lyle Foster due to injury puts more pressure on Luca Koleosho to come up with a strong performance. The young shoulders of the American will be seeking the first goal of the season. So far, he has had a hand in just one goal.

Johann Gudmundsson leading the example

The organisational work in the middle of the park will rely heavily on Johann Gudmundsson, who has been a regular for the team in the last few weeks. The 33-year-old comes with improving numbers of 1.2 key passes per match and an 83.5% passing success rate.

Odsonne Edouard is the top scorer in the Crystal Palace squad with four goals. Even though he has not been on the scoresheet for the last four league matches, the offensive contribution provided by the Frenchman will be key if Palace are to get three points

Cheick Doucoure keeping things under check

Cheick Doucoure has been a linchpin in the centre of the park for Crystal Palace. His performances have been crucial to the successes achieved by the team. In his nine league matches, the 23-year-old has had an 86.9% passing accuracy and a staggering 3.4 tackles per match.

Final Prediction

Despite the excellent recent record in this fixture for the host, the Burnley vs Crystal Palace stats will expect a tight match that does not involve a lot of goals even if the game produces a winner. Burnley are likely to get the edge in this match with Palace lacking a profound goalscorer.
