Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson keeps 'quiet' on Diafra Sakho deal

Hodgson confirmed Jeffrey Schlupp will not be available to face Burnley due to an injury

Schlupp, 25, has been a regular fixture for Crystal Palace having played in 19 of their 22 English Premier League fixtures this season.

Here is what the fans have to say about their respective clubs. While the first 11 looks strong, below the surface there is little beyond that which could influence games. It is baffling as to why he hasn't yet gone to a bigger club.

"Roy Hodgson's impact at the club has been nothing short of incredible".

"We didn't have enough of a certain type of player in areas of the field". Together with Ray Lewington, he has turned the team around.

The Clarets are winless in four Premier League away games, drawing each of their last three.

"It was at Selhurst Park where we achieved our solo victory on the road last season - but our away record this year has been exceptional in comparison".

Manchester United youngster Timothy Fosu-Mensah, now away at Crystal Palace, has said words that'll bring music to Jose Mourinho's ears. With twice as many league goals as Benteke this season despite featuring for only a fifth as many minutes as the Belgian, Hodgson may decide to use a player showing confidence as opposed to a player who has a style which perfectly suits the way Burnley are set up to defend.

When Hodgson succeeded Frank de Boer last September, it was widely believed that his back to basics 4-4-2 approach might bring the best out of the mercurial striker.

That is hardly an acceptable return for a striker Palace invested 27 million pounds ($36.91 million) in August 2016.

"In many people's eyes, Burnley have over achieved so far this season and were amongst the favourites to be relegated before the campaign got underway".

With few options available to Hodgson in the forward positions of his preferred 4-4-2 formation, midfielders Wilfried Zaha, Andros Townsend and Bakary Sako have already been used in this position. Without the goalscoring ability of Chris Wood and the crossing prowess of Robbie Brady, the Clarets could find their hosts tough to unpick. Johann Berg Gudmundsson has been in great form recently and will be a threat from the right, whilst the signing of Georges-Kévin N'Koudou presents an exciting prospect on the left.
