Sam Vokes starts for Burnley at Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace’s Jeffrey Schlupp set for surgery

He was a constant threat to the Clarets with his pace and power, forcing Tarkowski into an early challenge which saw the defender - whose first Premier League start had come on this ground in April in a first away win of the season which all but secured top-flight safety -get just enough of the ball to get the verdict from referee Michael Oliver as Palace appealed for a penalty.

Sako scored the victor against Burnley by side-stepping defender Phil Bardsley and driving a powerful shot past goalkeeper Nick Pope for his seventh goal of the season. "But he's done really well for us". The goal, celebrated with a collective puffing out of the chest, inspired Palace to kick on.

But Bakary Sako's first-half finish at Selhurst Park instead took them up to 12th and five points clear of the bottom three, and at a time when they have eight first-team players absent through injury.

Christian Benteke picked up a good assist with a flicked ball out to the left but it was all about Sako in truth, the winger driving inside and punishing Burnley for some nervy defending as they backed off and he drove the ball hard across goal and into the corner.

Burnley's best chance from the opening period was an Ashley Barnes effort that was palmed over the crossbar by Wayne Hennessey. They are still in seventh place in the table after all.

"We probably deserved to scratch a draw".

Fosu-Mensah, 20, is relishing his season-long loan spell from Manchester United, having made 17 appearances across all competitions for Palace so far this season compared to just 11 senior appearances for United in the entirety of the last campaign.

Dyche was asked about his thoughts on Hodgson's achievements and the younger Englishman did not hold back in his praise of the 70-year-old. "We met for a coffee before the game". It's not a surprise to me that Roy's work and the coaches' work has progressed the team.

"He's settled it down nicely here, but it's not a surprise to me; it is down to Roy and his staff putting in the work".
