Burnley Loses 0-2 To Crystal Palace At Turf Moor

burnley-crystal-palace

Burnley makes history as the first team in English top-flight to lose their first 6 home games of a season as they were defeated by Crystal Palace at Turf Moor.

Jordan Beyer’s miscalculation was punished by Jeffrey Schlupp, who slid Jordan Ayew’s ball across the face of the Burnley goal to put Palace ahead.

In stoppage time, they completed the victory when Tyrick Mitchell, a replacement for Eberechi Eze, rounded James Trafford and kept the Clarets in the Premier League‘s bottom three, in 19th place.

Despite having far more possession of the ball and creating multiple good opportunities, Vincent Kompany’s hosts were punished once again for switching off, and those were Palace’s only truly clear-cut chances of the game.

After just two minutes, Zeki Amdouni wasted a clear header, and shortly after the break, Johann Berg Gudmundsson wasted their best opportunity by dragging a pull-back from the in form Luca Koleosho.

Palace keeper Sam Johnstone reacted quickly to deny Jay Rodriguez and substitute Wilson Odobert, and he also produced a fantastic fingertip save in the second half to stop Josh Brownhill’s 20-yard curler.

Burnley’s eight straight top-flight home losses set a new, regrettable club record. Burnley also lost their final two games at Turf Moor before being relegated from the Premier League in 2021–2022.

In the meantime, Roy Hodgson’s Palace, coming back from losses to Newcastle and Tottenham, move up into the top half of the table, to 10th.
