Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

That's all from Selhurst Park.

Our coverage of today's Premier League action continues here.

Thanks for joining me.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

We'll have four added minutes at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Wasteful from Christian Benteke!

He's in on goal and hits the side netting from a tight angle, when team-mate Wilfried Zaha was free to his left with an open goal to aim at.

CLOSE!

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Will Burnley get a better chance than this?

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Burnley make another change, with Johann Berg Gudmundsson off in place of forward Nahki Wells.

A last roll of the dice for the visitors?

YELLOW CARD - Charlie Taylor (Burnley)

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Ooh, a bit of needle in this one now.

Charlie Taylor nudges Wilfried Zaha into a TV camera, and the Palace man isn't happy. Jack Cork also gets involved, but just the one card is shown.

YELLOW CARD - Phil Bardsley (Burnley)

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Michael Oliver goes back to book Phil Bardsley for wiping out Bakary Sako.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Into the last 15 minutes of the match and Palace are doing their best to take the sting out of Burnley, whose debutant Georges-Kevin Nkoudou has been frustrated so far by the Eagles' defence.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

After that flurry of chances, we're experiencing a bit of a lull in what has been a fairly even second-half.

Burnley enjoying a good spell here under the lights at Selhurst Park.

Palace have achieved just one Premier League clean sheet at home this season - will that be playing on the minds of Roy Hodgson's defence as the clock ticks on?

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Burnley will hope that the introduction of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou affords them some more width on the left, and the Frenchman's first meaningful touch sees a decent delivery just evade Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

SUBSTITUTION

And here he is, as Jeff Hendrick goes off in place of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

We're about to see the introduction of Burnley's new loan signing Georges-Kevin NKoudou.

The Tottenham man is being issued with his instructions by Sean Dyche.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

You sense that the next goal in this game - without stating the obvious - is crucial.

But it's anyone's guess who will get it, as Palace's Wilfried Zaha is the latest to have an effort blocked.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

A good break by Burnley, which is instigated by Ashley Barnes, who finds Johann Berg Gudmundsson on the right.

The Icelander's near-post cross is good, but Sam Vokes heads into the side netting.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Timothy Fosu-Mensah has been a menace down the right for Palace so far in this match, and his crosses haven't been bad either.

This time he finds the goalscorer Bakary Sako, but he can't direct his header.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

From the throw, Johann Berg Gudmundsson's delivery picks out the head of Ashley Barnes, who puts the ball back across goal - but in the end it goes harmlessly wide.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

No chances for either side in this second-half so far, but some patient passing from Burnley wins a throw-in deep in Palace's half.

KICK-OFF

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

We are ready to get going again at Selhurst Park.

No changes for either side at the break, so here's a reminder of how they line up.

'Burnley running out of steam'

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Final Score

The closing down from Phil Bardsley is not good enough for the goal. Bakary Sako has ran at him, and the defender hasn't done enough to stop him - Nick Pope's got no chance. It seems like Burnley have really run out of steam recently.

HALF-TIME

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

And that's that for the opening 45 minutes.

Bakary Sako's goal is the difference at the break.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Just when Burnley looked to be coming back into it, Sean Dyche's side almost concede again.

This time it's a marauding run down the right by Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who gets a cross in which Bakary Sako volleys just wide of Nick Pope's left hand post.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

And from that free-kick, Martin Kelly, Patrick van Aanholt and Christian Benteke all see chances come and go and great work from Kelly out wide to launch the attack.

YELLOW CARD - Steven Defour (Burnley)

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Steven Defour is the first player booked, after a foul on Wilfried Zaha.

CLOSE!

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

That's better from Burnley!

It's another free-kick which is headed away from goal - but only as far as Ashley Barnes who hits a dipping half-volley which Wayne Hennessey tips over.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

A chance for Burnley now, though as Fosu-Mensah concedes a foul in line with the edge of the 18 yard box.

Berg Gudmundsson's first delivery is headed away, but the ball is recycled back to the Icelander who this time finds Sam Vokes lurking - but his header goes wide.

That's as close as the visitors have come.

Burnley are trying their best to feel a way back into this match, but Palace are in their faces whenever they find possession.

It'll be of no comfort for Clarets fans that their side are without a win in all 48 Premier League games under Sean Dyche when they have conceded the opening goal - losing 39 of those.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Another chance goes awry for the hosts as Christian Benteke thumps a header inches over the bar from Luka Milivojevic's corner.

The Belgian was allowed the time and space to get a free header, so will be disappointed not to have doubled Palace's lead from six yards.

CLOSE!

Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Palace so close to a second!

This time, James McArthur looks certain to tap in following Wilfried Zaha's clip over a stranded Nick Pope, but Burnley captain Ben Mee clears from underneath his own cross bar.

GOAL - Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley

Bakary Sako

Now we've had a shot on goal - and it's the opener.

Palace hit Burnley on the break, as Christian Benteke picks out Bakary Sako on the left.

The Malian international cuts inside and gets a shot away which goes straight through Nick Pope, possibly via a deflection.

A goalless opening 15 minutes at Selhurst Park, where we still await a first shot on target this afternoon.

Burnley have seen more of the ball, but it's a midfield battle so far.

PENALTY APPEAL

Crystal Palace 0-0 Burnley

Palace want a penalty after James Tarkowski goes in on Sako, but Mr Oliver is having none of it.

Replays show that Tarkowski won the ball - just - but there was a moment of doubt for the Burnley defender before the referee decided it was a fair challenge and waved play on.

Crystal Palace 0-0 Burnley

Palace seize a loose ball in midfield allowing Wilfried Zaha to tee up Bakary Sako, but his first-time effort from outside the box is blocked away from danger.

Crystal Palace 0-0 Burnley

Nothing to report from the early stages of this one, with Burnley shooting from left to right, towards the Whitehorse Lane stand in the first half.

The atmosphere at Selhurst Park is bouncing.

Steve Bower

Match of the Day commentator at Selhurst Park

This fixture brings together two English managers who are exceeding their respective expectations.

I watched Roy Hodgson's second match in charge of Palace, September's 5-0 defeat by Manchester City, and afterwards he spoke of the huge challenge ahead for team, who then had no points and had scored no goals. A tally of 22 points from 18 subsequent games is remarkable and this game will be in his winnable column.

Five league matches without a victory for Sean Dyche's Burnley shouldn't disguise their tremendous campaign so far. The fact they sit as currently the best of the rest says it all.

With 17 points from 11 games, their away form has been their biggest improvement and you wouldn't be surprised to see them add to that at Selhurst Park.

The turnaround...

Roy Hodgson
.

When Roy Hodgson sat disconsolately in a media room in Nice to announce his resignation as England manager after the humiliating Euro 2016 exit to Iceland, it looked like a career in coaching and management stretching back 40 years may be over.

Hodgson was then approaching his 69th birthday and looked broken by the pain of seeing England bundled out in the last 16 by rank outsiders.

And yet, a little more than a year on, Hodgson was back at Crystal Palace explaining: "Unfortunately, a long time ago someone injected the drug called football into my veins and I have never been able to shake it off. I am still an addict."

Fortunately for Palace, Hodgson's addiction has seen him conduct a quiet, confident reconstruction of a team stranded with no Premier League points or goals after seven games into the relative comfort of 14th position with 22 points after 18 league games.

So how has Hodgson lifted the Eagles off the ground?
