    That's all from me today but we'll be back tomorrow for coverage of Brighton vs Manchester United (kick-off 20:15 BST).

    In fact, there's Premier League action for the next three nights in a row. We get a day off on Friday!

    See you tomorrow.

  2. Post update

    Phil Dawkes' report on this game is up so you can check that out here.

    And that interview between Joe Hart and Simon Stone is here.

    Here's the report from Northampton Town's play-off final victory over Exeter City too!

  3. 'We're not giving anything up'

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson, speaking to Amazon Prime: "Seventeen shots is good but I don't think we played anywhere near as well as we wanted to in the first half. We were better in the second half but unfortunately we conceded a goal from a set piece.

    "We did everything we could to find a way through but it didn't work out for us.

    "It was a very good header and a good ball in. I'm not going to blame the goalkeeper. He didn't have a lot to do all goals are defensive errors somewhere along the line.

    "Europe depends a lot on our personnel. We're certainly not giving anything up. The matches are coming thick and fast these days. There will be strange results along the way but this was a great opportunity for us."

  4. 'Dynamic of the club has changed'

    FT: Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley


    Burnley manager Sean Dyche, speaking to Amazon Prime: "We are pleased with the outcome. In the first half we were excellent. We kept the ball and kept proding. They came out a bit stronger in the second half.

    "We lost Jack Cork unfortunately which changed the feel of the performance a little bit but we responded well.

    "Ben Mee is a fantastic captain and we know his ability and strength in the air. It was a brilliant header.

    "We have a group that give everything and we saw that again tonight.

    "When you think that in the 100 days from the start of lockdown to the end the dynamic of the club has changed somewhat so that has been interesting to compute and to make sense of but you saw a group fully motivated, as am I.

    "We've got a group here who never go under. There are young players who are getting a view of what it means to play for Burnley.

    "I'll be working hard. You saw me committed in the last game and this game and you saw a team full of commitment to playing for Burnley."

  5. Post update

    More hints from Sean Dyche in his interview with Radio 5 Live and just then with Amazon Prime, which I'll put through shortly.

    He's just said the 'dynamic of the club has changed' during the 100 days (or so) of lockdown.


  6. 'We showed our togetherness'

    FT: Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley


    Burnley goalscorer Ben Mee to Amazon Prime: "We came into the game with a depleted squad so to play like we did showed our togetherness. To get the goal was nice. It wasn't a great ball from Ashley Westwood actually, it wasn't what we had worked on, so I tried to make the best of it and got a good connection on it."

    On the response to his interview following the plane carrying a 'White Lives Matter' banner last week: "I've been humbled by the response to the interview. It's nice to hear. The club got quite a few emails too which I read a few of. It wasn't a great night for us but we have responded really well to get two wins on the bounce. We want to move forward and make that change if we can.

    "Hopefully we can get some bodies back. The young boys have come in and trained really well with us. It's great experience for them to see how much they need to work to get into this team. That showed today."

  7. 'I'm still here'

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley


    Burnley manager Sean Dyche on BBC Radio 5 Live: "In the first half we played very well. We've had to change things with the stretched squad we have and we did very well.

    "In the second half Palace came out strongly and we lost our way a little bit but we stayed resolute and we had to change our shape, because we had kids on the bench and we didn't want to throw them in.

    "Against Watford we were good value and we worked hard for this one and just about edged it."

    On the threadbare nature of his squad: "I've had it easier. The good thing is that young players are getting a test and seeing what it means to play for us. It's tough when players are looking around and are only seeing youth-team players who haven't had a minute yet and that is probably confusing for them."

    On the prospect of European football: "There's a long way to go because of how thin our squad is. There are no excuses though and the mentality is good, the physcialtiy has to remain strong."

    On his own future: "Everyone keeps talking about my future apart from me. I'm getting on with my job as I always do - I'm still here."

  8. Post update

    FT: Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley

    Another good day for Ben Mee. Burnley probably deserved the win but Vicente Guaita will have trouble sleeping tonight.

  9. Post update

    While we wait to hopefully hear from the managers, Burnley fans it's worth checking out this interview with Joe Hart from BBC Sport's Simon Stone.

    For the first time in his 17-year professional career, goalkeeper Hart has no club.

    Released by Burnley this summer, Hart is convinced he will find his perfect footballing match - and that he still has lots to offer.

    He spoke exclusively to BBC Sport about his past, his future career and the importance of talking about mental health.

    Ben: What a great win - considering everything with this whole ‘chat’ around the club, money and Dyche. He’s still got 11 players on that pitch playing their heart out... can’t ask for more.

  13. Post update

    FT: Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley

    If you had said at the start of the season Burnley would be four points off Manchester United, level on points with Tottenham, above Arsenal and potentially on their way to a European spot with six games remaining, you probably wouldn't have believed it.

    Those around them have another game in hand, but that's brilliant from Sean Dyche's side.

    Here's how it looks for you Clarets!

    Chris Sutton

    Former Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 Live

    That is a huge three points for Burnley and now they can get European football. Who would have thought that at the start of the season?


    Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley

    Well-fought victory for Burnley. They move level on points with Spurs.

  18. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley

    Palace are in their own half and they need the ball up the other end. James Tarkowski hoofs one back to the keeper.

  19. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley

    Max Meyer puts it into the middle for Gary Cahill...

    His header is straight at Nick Pope! Roy Hodgson's head goes down.

  20. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley

    Another cross in from the left and it's not dealt with by the keeper. It bobbles around dangerously before Scott Dann's shot is deflected just wide!
