Crystal Palace travel to Burnley on Saturday afternoon, as Premier League matters resume following the international break.

Having only lost to Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League this campaign, Palace sit tenth in the table after a hugely encouraging beginning to Patrick Vieira's tenure. The side have started to show a clinical streak in their play which allowed them to bring a run of four draws to an end before the break, firstly getting a fantastic 2-0 victory at Manchester City and then beating Wolves by the same scoreline.

Unbeaten in six, Vieira's men now face a Burnley side in high spirits themselves. Despite sitting a lowly 18th, Sean Dyche's side picked up their first win of the campaign against Brentford before earning a huge point at Chelsea last time out.


Crystal Palace predicted lineup vs Burnley - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Vicente Guaita (GK) - Very much the established number one, Guaita will continue between the sticks in search of a third consecutive clean sheet.

Joel Ward (RB) - Hasn't missed a minute of league action this term. Might not be as flashy as his peers but should be mentioned in that whole 'England right-back' conversation.

Joachim Andersen (CB) - Sustained a niggle while on international duty with Denmark, but he should be fine to feature on Saturday.

Marc Guehi (CB) - The England Under-21 captain scored against Georgia last time out, and will certainly continue at the heart of this established back line.

Tyrick Mitchell (LB) - The final piece of this defence is Mitchell who, like Ward and Guehi, has not missed a minute of Premier League action this term.

2. Midfielders

Cheikhou Kouyate (DM) - The midfielder has taken the anchor role for himself this campaign and, following two solid showings in a row, will surely continue there this weekend.

Conor Gallagher (CM) - Deservedly made his Three Lions debut during the international break and will inevitably dazzle at Turf Moor on Saturday.

James McArthur (CM) - Understated, but so vital. His positional intelligence is pivotal in keeping Palace solid out of possession

3. Forwards

Wilfried Zaha (RW) - The Eagles talisman has struck in each of his side's last two Premier League games.

Christian Benteke (ST) - Following Benteke's goal and assist for Belgium last time out, he could be called upon to lead the line once more.

Odsonne Edouard (LW) - Eberechi Eze could be back available for the trip to Burnley, although a start is very unlikely. Edouard has enjoyed a great start to his Palace career and will aim to build on his three Premier League goals thus far.
