According to premier leagues own website. Joe Hart has made the most number of saves and also managed to let the most goals in.

They seem to enjoy a good old barrage at the onion net.

Lets hope we keep the stats ringing up on sat.

Same site says AWB made the second highest number of tackles.

I wouldn't worry, they're playing us tomorrow.

Clean sheet guaranteed

Yeah, you gotta stop tempting fate with all these stats.

I think one time Burnley visited us and they hadn't won AWAY all season.....

Burnley bought centre-half Ben Gibson from Middlesbrough in pre-season for £15 Mill but he has not played in the PL this season due to injury.

They have Ben Mee playing in central defence but he isn't the quickest and it appears that left-back Charlie Taylor isn't the quickest off the mark and can be got at by a wide player.James Tarkowski has been injured so Kevin Long has been partnering Mee at the back - not sure if Tarkowski will be fit for tomorrow's game.

Shyte game. They went ahead early ish I think, sat back and just hacked the ball away for a throw in on the halfway line the whole game. It was like watching a decent side trying to break down a really bad pub team. Even the backs away were miscues. It looked really amateur.

It’s got 0-1 to them written all over it, until we find out how to win a game without scoring we’re doomed

Despite Burnley's poor form not many on here are predicting a win for us and I suspect quite a few of our supporters believe it will be a draw or a narrow defeat.Supporters have lost faith in our ability to win at home and this is understandable given our abject form at 'Selhurst'.

Could be a very uncomfortable walk for Hodgson from dug-out to the tunnel if we succumb to another defeat against a struggling team.Words will be shot out,purple-hot projectiles of bile.It really will be a terrible result.

Burnley's leaky defence versus our woeful,impotent attack.

Outcome?? No score,bore draw written all over it.

What was odd against Newcastle was that despite their slow defenders they played a relatively high line which was exploited time and again. They were also very slow at winning the second ball from set-pieces when defending. Playing away from home they are likely to play deeper though, I imagine. The two times I've seen them this season they've looked strong, physical and direct but lacking in quality. If Tomkins and Sakho are fit I think we'll be ok, but from set-pieces we are going to need to be brave at both ends as the likes of Vokes and Wood are monsters.

Newcastle played a 3-5-2 and Burnley a 4-4-2.
Newcastle had that extra man in the middle and perhaps Burnley's plan was to squeeze that space in that vital midfield area.
Burnley were at home then - against us I suspect they will play a lot deeper,get behind the ball and hope to nick a goal from a set-play or a long ball up to Vokes,Wood etc.

We’ve been playing well, but this is the game that, as you say, could really start to make things uncomfortable for Roy, no excuses of being gallant losers or scraping a good point against the big boys, if we can’t score and beat this Burnley team on current form, there’s a serious problem. I love Roy, but this is the time of year where SP might start getting an itchy trigger finger, with plenty of the season left and the transfer window looming.
