Crystal Palace 1 Burnley 0


"Anything else would be a huge bonus, especially having started with seven games, seven defeats and no goals".

Burnley mounted an admirable resurgence in the second half to steal an equaliser but were met by a typically well-organised Roy Hodgson defence.

"We have a lot of injuries at the moment, but we have what I think is a competitive starting XI and affects us mostly with regard to the players I can call on from the bench and are stretched to the limit and are badly wounded", said Hodgson.

Palace thought they should have been awarded a penalty when Sako appeared to be fouled by James Tarkowski, but the referee waved away their appeals.

After a very quiet opening to the Selhurst Park clash, Wilfried Zaha set up Sako whose first-time effort was blocked.

Palace started well with Wilfred Zaha and Bakary Sako looking lively before Wayne Hennessey was off his line quickly to stop Ashley Barnes from releasing Sam Vokes into the area at the other end. "They were better than us in the first half, not by miles".

Emergency helicopters airlifted about 50 people to safety on Tuesday, according to Kevin Taylor of the Montecito Fire Department. Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown added that the number was likely to increase as search and rescue operations continue.

Crystal Palace moved up to the 12th spot in the Premier League log with 25 points from 23 games, they are now five points above the relegation zone.

Burnley's new loan-signing from Tottenham, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou came on, playing a pivotal role on the left-flank against Timothy Fosu-Mensah who had been in top form in the first-half.

Burnley will head to South London with the hope of getting all three points from this game.

By contrast, the Warriors lead the league in scoring (115.7 points per game) and three-point shooting (39 per cent). The Cavaliers are hoping for a better outcome after their 133-99 loss to the Toronto Raptors in their last contest.

Tempers flared in the 84th minute when Taylor fouled Zaha and the Palace man collided with one of the pitch-side television cameras and cameramen, but calm was restored and Taylor was booked.

Benteke had a chance to bury Burnley under that second goal as he ran through the defense but waited too long to get the shot away and ended up hitting the side netting, only increasing the home fans nerves.
