  1. Thanks for your company

    Right, I need a lie down after that one. 

    But I'm not going to get one, obviously. I'm instead going to put together a match report summing up all that craziness. It's available here.


    Burnley 3 Crystal Palace 2

    Tom Heaton

    Burnley 3 Crystal Palace 2

    That would have been too crazy even for this game. 

    Palace kicked of and went straight on the attack. The ball came to Andros Townsend on the edge of the area but his shot struck the post!

    So close to 3-3!

  4. GOAL for Burnley!!

    Burnley 3 Crystal Palace 2

    A great game gets a wonderful, wonderful finale as Ashley Barnes slots home what must surely be the winner in the fourth minute of five in added time.

    It was another counter attack from the hosts. Barnes was involved earlier in the move, releasing Berg Gudmundsson on the right and his cross was returned to Barnes who fired gleefully home. 

    Amazing stuff.

    Palace are camped in the Burnley half here. 

    We'll have five minutes of injury time.

  6. Zaha the key?

    If Palace are going to win this, you feel Wilfried Zaha will be key. 

    He's been brilliant in this half. Can he unlock Burnley again in what time remains?

  7. History repeating?

    Not for the first time this afternoon I'm going to have to hark back to the last Premier League meeting between these two in January 2015.

    Burnley led 2-0 on that occasion. Final score? Burnley 2 Palace 3.

    Surely not...

    Christian Benteke
  8. GOAL for Crystal Palace

    Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 2

    No mistake from 12 yards by Christian Benteke. 

    A slight stutter in the run up sends Tom Heaton the wrong way, and the Belgium striker slots the ball confidently into the bottom-left corner.

    Will they get a winner?

  9. PENALTY to Palace

    Matt Lowton inexplicably sticks out a hand to block Andros Townsend's cross.

    This game has been a belter.

    Christian Benteke to take it...

  10. Post update

    Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 1

    A great defensive header by Scott Dann denies Burnley another chance. 

    Resulting corner comes to nothing.


    Palace's Damien Delaney is the next man in the book for a trip on Jeff Hendrick.

    Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 1

    Wilfried Zaha is really hitting his straps in this second half. 

    Another surging run, this time down the left, creates another chance for the visitors, but Christian Benteke is unable to apply the finish.

    Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 1

    Midfielder Steven Defour off, defender James Tarkowski on for Burnley.  

    That gives you some indication of how this one is going.

  14. Post update

    Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 1

    It's a shooting gallery at the back for the hosts. 

    Palace win a corner after a concentrated spell of pressure with countless shots fired in on goal, and countless blocks made. 

    Really entertaining fare on show here.

  15. Post update

    Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 1

    A half chance for Burnley there. Vokes' through ball picked out Berg Gudmundsson but his attempted pass across goal for the unmarked Hendrick was cut out by Palace's last man Fryers.

    Palace's subs doing the business.


    Burnley's first change sees George Boyd come on for Scott Arfield.

  17. Post update

    Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 1

    Wilfried Zaha is getting plenty of joy down the right against Jon Flanagan and again he delivers a great cross for Yohan Cabaye, whose shot is charged down.

  18. GOAL for Crystal Palace

    Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 1

    Stunning introduction off the bench for Connor Wickham. He's scored with his first touch.

    Palace had just shuffled their pack by bringing the burly striker on to support Christian Benteke in attack, and he makes an instant impact. 

    Wilfied Zaha provided the assist after beating his Jon Flanagan with a lovely bit of skill and pace, and Wickham was there to drill home a fearsome shot. 

    Game very much on.

    Palace blink first with their personnel. 

    Connor Wickham and Zeki Fryers are on for Puncheon and Kelly.


    James McArthur is the first Palace player into referee Anthony Taylor's notebook for a pull back on Steven Defour.
