English Premier League
Burnley FC vs Crystal Palace
Date: Sunday, September 10, 2017
Time: 8:30a ET
Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley
Burnley find themselves in the unusual position of still looking for their first home win, having won away at champions Chelsea and held Spurs to a draw at Wembley. They beat Crystal Palace home and away last season, though not easily, and are bound to find Frank de Boer’s side a different proposition, if only because the visitors are desperate to register their first points of the season, or even their first goal.
Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick is a doubt to face Crystal Palace after missing both of Republic of Ireland’s matches with a thigh injury.
Record signing Chris Wood could make his first Premier League start and Jon Walters is also fit for selection.
Crystal Palace trio Ruben Loftus-Cheek, James Tomkins and Yohan Cabaye are expected to be fit but Wilfried Zaha has not recovered from a knee injury.
Mamadou Sakho, a £26m signing, could play for the first time this season.
