Preview: Crystal Palace vs. Burnley – Prediction, Team News

Oliver Glasner will manage his first game when Crystal Palace host Burnley in the Premier League. On Monday night, Ray Lewington guided the Eagles to a 1-1 draw with Everton. On a soggy afternoon at Turf Moor, the Clarets suffered a humiliating 5-0 loss at home against Arsenal.

The Eagles had a difficult time getting ready for Palace’s Goodison Park visit because Roy Hodgson’s illness during a training session left them rattled. The veteran manager resigned from his post rather than accept a beating from his bosses. Oliver Glasner, the former head coach of Eintracht Frankfurt and 2022 Europa League winner with Die Adler, would sign on the dotted line, defying earlier worries that a lack of willing and available candidates would lengthen Palace’s search for a successor. Glasner was present in the stands on Monday to watch the Eagles give Everton a serious run for their money.

Lewington saw Jordan Ayew give Palace the lead with an incredible long-range strike before resigning from his Selhurst Park duties as well. However, an Amadu Onana header in the 84th minute kept the Eagles from winning for the first time this month. Even so, a point was a commendable result for the capital charges. They now sit 15th in the table with 25 points from as many games, five points ahead of Luton Town. Glasner will soon become the second Austrian manager in the competition when he takes over in the Premier League.

But of the fifteen permanent head coaches who have managed a Crystal Palace Premier League match, only Alan Pardew emerged victorious in his first game in charge, a 2-1 triumph over Tottenham Hotspur in January 2015. Since then, the Eagles have conceded at least one goal in each of their last eight home games. Burnley’s day was as bad as the weather during last weekend’s visit from Arsenal. They followed up their 6-0 slaughter of West Ham United with a five-goal demolition of Vincent Kompany’s soldiers.

Owner of the three-man defense, Glasner saw Palace use a 3-4-2-1 formation for the match against Everton on Monday night, which appears to remain the starting lineup going forward despite the absence of seven players. Michael Olise and Emerechi Eze, two crucial attackers, are still tending to their thigh issues. Marc Guehi is having trouble with his knee. Despite this, neither player has been officially ruled out of Saturday’s game. Will Hughes’s foot issue might also resolve in time for Glasner to use the midfielder in this situation. The game will undoubtedly be missed by Cheick Doucoure (Achilles) and Rob Holding (ankle).

Not only was Burnley’s five-goal loss to Arsenal memorable in terms of the score, but in the second half, Aaron Ramsey appeared to suffer a very serious knee injury; the 21-year-old was given oxygen as he was led off the pitch to rousing cheers. Although Ramsey’s injury has not yet been diagnosed, the midfield player will undoubtedly be sidelined from Saturday’s game along with Lucas Koleosho (knee), Kyle Foster (surgery), and Nathan Redmond (thigh). Jordan Beyer (thigh) is also probably out. Due to Ramsay’s injury, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Jacob Bruun Larsen will battle it out. Additionally, Kompany might think about adding Vitinho.
