Sean Dyche says Burnley are progressing despite Crystal Palace defeat

Burnley have beaten Chelsea and drawn against Liverpool Manchester United and Tottenham this season

Bakary Sako's sixth goal of the season gave Crystal Palace a 1-0 win over Burnley and moved Roy Hodgson's side further away from the relegation strife that once threatened to engulf their season. "I thought they were better in the first half and they played a very simple format but delivered it well in a 4-2-4, getting the ball forward quickly and looking a handful".

But the hosts were soon ahead, through the Malian global, on 21 minutes.

They were fortunate to escape further punishment when Charlie Taylor's weak header was intercepted by Zaha and it required a brilliant last-ditch clearance by Ben Mee to prevent James McArthur from converting.

Burnley registered just two shots on target in the match as they struggled to supply Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes, and looked a shadow of their normal selves based on previous performances this season, but Dyche said he was pleased with what he saw after the break. In the first half we created enough chances to have made things more comfortable for ourselves in the second half.


A bouncing ball in the Burnley box caused confusion in the 57th minute and Taylor did well to block when the goal beckoned for Zaha.

Loan signing Georges-Kevin N'Koudou replaced Jeffrey Hendrick on the hour mark and immediately injected some skill to the Burnley attack, and so almost set up Gudmundsson with an incisive pass, only for McArthur to clear.

The Red Devils are now overstocked in the positions Fosu-Mensah would normally be considered to play in and so he was sent out on loan to another Premier League club to learn his trade.

Crystal Palace have the talent and squad depth to cope with their lengthy injury list and beat Burnley in Saturday's Premier League encounter, on-loan defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has said.

- Only Southampton (10) are on a current longer winless run in the Premier League than Burnley (6).
