Picking the Best Potential Burnley Lineup to Face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday

Burnley travel to the capital this Saturday to face Crystal Palace in what is a crucial game for both sides. 


Sean Dyche's side are currently on a six game winless run and will need to end that this weekend if they are to avoid dropping into the bottom three. 


They have struggled to keep clean sheets this season and will need to tighten up at the back if they are to halt that slide down the table.


Here is the team that is likely to line up this weekend against Palace.

1. Goalkeeper and Defenders

Joe Hart (GK): The England international is relishing the chance of regular game time while Nick Pope remains sidelined. 


Matt Lowton (RB): The dependable full back is one of the first names on the teamsheet for Sean Dyche.


Ben Mee (CB): Burnley's captain has been one of the heroes of this side in recent years, and will undoubtedly start this weekend. 


James Tarkowski (CB): The England international is back from injury and will once again partner Mee at the heart of Burnley's backline. 


Charlie Taylor (LB): In the absence of Stephen Ward, Taylor has impressed on the left of the defence providing a great attacking outlet with his delivery from wide. He will need to be sharp at the back too if he is to keep Andros Townsend quiet.

2. Midfielders

Aaron Lennon (RM): The tricky winger has recently returned to the Burnley team due to the untimely injury suffered by Johann Berg Gudmundsson. 


Steven Defour (CM): The creative spark for his side in the midfield Defour will be crucial to spreading the play and controlling the tempo of the game from the middle of the park. 


Jack Cork (CM): Cork provides the legs and the engine for his side and will be the key to winning the midfield battle in this crunch game


Robbie Brady (LM): The Irish winger has a wicked left foot and his set piece delivery will be a vital source of creativity for his side.

3. Forwards

Chris Wood (ST): The New Zealand international hasn't been as potent in front of goal as he was last season, and will be hoping to finally find some form this weekend. 


Sam Vokes (ST): The big Welshman been an integral part of Sean Dyche's side this season.
