Burnley welcome Crystal Palace to Turf Moor on Saturday, with the Clarets looking for their third win on the bounce to potentially take them as high as fifth. 

Burnley currently sit above Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham in the Premier League table.

With Burnley's strong home record, you would not bet things staying that way for another weekend at least. 

They host a ​Crystal Palace side six places behind them in the Premier League table, but such is the closeness of the division this season, a win for the visitors would put them level on points with ​Burnley

Palace have slipped down the table in recent weeks after a horrendous run of games that saw them play all of the top four in the space of a month. 

With a helping hand from Opta, here are all the stats and facts you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash...

Last on Match of the Day?

This fixture has the final slot on Match of the Day written all over it. Only Leicester (six) have kept more Premier League clean sheets than Burnley this season (five), while only Watford (seven) have failed to score in more games than Crystal Palace (six)​. 

Similarly, only Watford (eight) have scored fewer Premier League goals than Crystal Palace this season (eleven).

Burnley on the other hand have been in impressive goal scoring form of late, winning their last two Premier League games by a 3-0 scoreline. Sadly, according to the history books, the chances of them keeping this up are slim. Burnley last won three consecutive games by 3+ goals back in December 1926.

Route One Stuff


Burnley have had 36 open play sequences of 10+ passes in the Premier League this season, fewer than any other side. On top of this, 22% of the Clarets attempted passes this season have been long passes (over 30 yards), the highest ratio in the division. 

But with Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood upfront, who can blame them?

Life on the Road


Crystal Palace have won five of their last six Premier League games played outside of London (L1). 

Saturday's fixture is their first match outside of London since a 2-1 victory at Manchester United way back in August.

Shooting from Distance

Only the current top three of Liverpool (six), Leicester (five) and Manchester City (five) have scored more goals from outside the box in the Premier League than Burnley this season (four). 

Sean Dyche's side have a pretty impressive success rate too, with no side attempting fewer shots from distance this term than the Clarets​ (45).
