Crystal Palace failed to build on their victory at Anfield as they fell to a 1-0 loss against Tottenham Hotspur in the mid-week fixture earlier in the week. The Eagles have been in terrific form in the last few games and are on a meteoric rise in the points table. They are currently placed 12th in the points table, just two points away from the top half of the table and face a relatively easy fixture against Burnley at home this weekend. The Clarets lost to Manchester United in the previous round and will hope to put in a strong performance to get something from this game.
Connor Wickham, James Tomkins, Scott Dann and Pape Souare remain long-term absentees while in-form defender Mamadou Sakho picked up, what looks like an ACL injury and is ruled out for the rest of the season.
The first choice shot-stopper for Palace, Hennessey could not do much to stop Eriksen from scoring in the previous game and will hope to have a better time this weekend.
The English full-back has been solid at both ends of the field but will have hope to have an easy game against Burnley.
The former Liverpool man was superb against a tricky Spurs attack and he will have a slightly easier game against Burnley this weekend.
With Mamadou Sakho out for the rest of the season, Delaney is the obvious option for Allardyce at the back. Should start the game.
Schlupp has thoroughly established himself as a regular in the Palace lineup and there is no reason why he wouldn’t start the game against Burnley.
The 26-year old has been a workhorse in the midfield for the Eagles this season and should start this game as the deepest of the midfielders.
The versatile midfielder has done a decent job in a slightly deeper role and he will hope to put in a strong performance to help his side to a victory.
Was used off the bench against the Spurs. He adds some balance to the midfield for Palace and should start this game.
The exciting winger has been in terrific form this season and will be the danger man to Burnley in this clash.
The veteran winger has also helped Palace put in a strong performance in each of the last few games and will hope to help the Eagles get all three points from this tie.
Though he was not effective against the Spurs, Benteke will be a huge goal scoring threat for the Eagles against Burnley this weekend.
