History of the Crystal Palace v Burnley fixture

Crystal Palace prepare to entertain Burnley at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 4 of the 12 previous games, with the Eagles winning just 2.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Selhurst Park was two seasons ago, in January 2004, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Division One match.
