Commentary
  • 94'

    FULL TIME: It's all over here!

  • 90'

    Four minutes added on here.

  • 89'

    We should have a considerable amount of stoppage time at the conclusion of the half here.

  • 86'

    Booking: Taylor goes into the book for his push on Zaha, before we get back underway.

  • 84'

    Corner! The play sparks into life and McArthur goes close after exchanging passes with Zaha, before his effort is turned behind by Tarkowski.

  • 82'

    Distinct lack of excitement to the football in this half - Palace look like they'll be happy to see out this game with a 1-0 win, but Burnley just don't look like scoring.

  • 78'

    Vokes tries his luck with a shot/cross from the right, but Hennessey - again - doesn't have to break a sweat as it goes behind.

  • 74'

    Defour floats in a free-kick for the visitors close to the halfway line, but he puts far too much weight on the pass and it drops behind for a goal-kick.

  • 70'

    Chance! Benteke is up again to meet Sako's dinked cross from the left, but Taylor throws himself into the body of the frontman and helps take the shot over the bar. He's injured himself with an awkward fall, but should be good to continue after some treat

  • 68'

    Gudmundsson takes his corner for the second time after Michael Oliver pulled back the first; Mee meets the delivery, but Riedewald clears on the edge of the area.

  • 66'

    Dangerous ball in from the Spurs loanee after picking up Cork's pass, but Gudmundsson is being tracked by McArthur and can't create a chance. Lively start from the newboy.

  • 64'

    Substitution: Hendrick's afternoon is done as N'Koudou takes his place.

  • 62'

    Chance! Taylor goes down theatrically after Milivojevic trips him and Gudmundsson's free-kick is cleared. Sean Dyche's men aren't having much luck this afternoon.

  • 59'

    Chance! Bardsley gives away a needless free-kick close to the left hand corner flag after bringing down McArthur. It's flicked on and returned to the area by Benteke, but the second delivery is cleared for a throw by Ben Mee.

  • 57'

    Side netting! Sam Vokes gets his head to a ball forward from Gudmundsson and gasps go up from the crowd, but Palace fans cheer as the ball hits the side netting.

  • 55'

    Chance! Another slick counter-attack from the hosts, but this time Sako times his jump incorrectly and can't nod Fosu-Mensah's whipped cross on target.

  • 53'

    Burnley have a throw in the final third and Barnes manages to outmuscle Fosu-Mensah and divert Gudmundsson's cross towards goal, but it's a little too far out to trouble Hennessey and off target anyway.

  • 50'

    Much like the first half, it's taking a while for either side to get comfortable on the ball after the break so far. Nothing of note to report as the second half continues.

  • 46'

    SECOND HALF: We're back underway!

  • 46'

    HALF TIME: Palace go into the break with a one goal lead. Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley.

  • 45'

    Just one minute of added time.

  • 44'

    Chance! Sako goes close to scoring goal of the season when he allows Fosu-Mensah's cross to drop before smashes a thunderous angled volley across goal and behind!

  • 42'

    Booking: Defour becomes the first player to have his name taken after several unnecesary kicks at Zaha after the player had been fouled.

  • 40'

    Save! Barnes brings down Tarkowski's header and hits a volley goalwards, but Hennessey has to be alert to get fingertips to that. They are starting to ask questions now!

  • 38'

    Chance! Gudmundsson delivers a dangerous ball into the area from the left flank and an unmarked Sam Vokes manages to flash a header just wide of the mark. That's the closest Burnley have come this afternoon.

  • 31'

    Milivojevic has been hit by a stray arm from Ashley Barnes and heads to the byline for treatment. It's a chance for the hosts to grab a quick drink as we pass the half hour mark at Selhurst Park.

  • 28'

    Chance! Tarkowski to the rescue as he turns Zaha's cross behind with Sako lurking. Milivojevic swings the ball in and Benteke meets the cross, but his powerful header flies over the bar.

  • 24'

    Chance! Zaha is one-on-one with Nick Pope and he dinks a shot over the stopper - McArthur races into the area with what looks like the simple task of tapping home, but Mee sprints back to goal to slide the ball to safety!

  • 21'

    The hosts take the lead through Bakary Sako and it's a very well taken goal from the frontman, who drifts in from the left hand side, jinks past Phil Bardsley and arrows a shot through the legs of Tarkowski and past Nick Pope!

  • 19'

    Chance! McArthur spreads Milivojevic's pass out to the right for van Aanholt, but Gudmundsson keeps tight to his man and sees the ball out.

  • 16'

    Benteke goes down on the edge of the area after a foul by Bardsley, but again, Oliver waves his appeals away! The frontman was already on his way down by the looks of it.

  • 12'

    NO PENALTY! Sako breaks away from the Burnley backline and Tarkowski lunges in with a rash challenge inside the area. Appeals go up from the crowd, but Michael Oliver doesn't even flinch.

  • 10'

    Chance! Van Aanholt's corner finds its way to Milivojevic outside the area; he tries his luck with a thumping volley, but as one would expect with the amount of bodies in the area, his attempt is blocked.

  • 8'

    Neither side has been able to control the ball here as yet, but as Defour is dispossessed, Sako tries his luck on the edge of the area. James Tarkowski is out to block.

  • 6'

    First touch of the game for Hennessey as he races to prevent Sam Vokes latching onto Barnes' short pass.

  • 5'

    Gudmundsson makes good ground of his own on the right, though McArthur gives chase and wins a throw. The Icelandic international attacks again and pulls the ball back to Bardsley, but his team-mate's delivery into the area is weak and Nick Pope collects.

  • 2'

    The hosts try and attack early through Zaha and then Sako, but Mee is alert to prevent the latter making any further progress on the right hand side.

  • 1'

    KICK OFF: We're underway!
