Crystal Palace ends winless streak at Burnley's expense

Dyche It’s time for Burnley to get out the gloves and say bring it

Dyche It’s time for Burnley to get out the gloves and say bring it

Dyche remains optimistic about his side's development, saying: "The key for me is to get back to a performance level that can win games".

Without a win in six home games heading into Saturday's encounter at Selhurst Park, Palace took a deserved lead when McArthur's cross found its way into the net 16 minutes in. Burnley captain Ben Mee never got close to Townsend, who unleashed an unstoppable curling shot past a despairing Hart.

"We've got a hard period now, and we've got a lot of games in a short space of time", Townsend said.

"I didn't think we were going to relinquish our grip and let them back in".

"It feels good because it has been a long time coming, and only a curmudgeon person would deny Crystal Palace the right to have won this game".

Roy Hodgson kept the same team which had performed brilliantly at Manchester United a week prior and were unlucky not to leave with all three points.

Townsend cut in from the right flank on to his left foot and beat Hart with a magnificent shot from outside the box which flew into the top corner.

Some European allies suspect that Trump could give notice in coming months that the leaving the treaty. Three NATO allies on the Black Sea - Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey - are also taking individual measures.

"Andros has got that in his locker, so it is no surprise to me", added Hodgson.

"We have seen that move and shot fail to succeed many times before because the ball has either gone wide or over the crossbar or the goalkeeper has made an excellent save, but today the shot was so good Joe Hart can not be blamed in any way".

Sean Dyche believes that Burnley have lost the mentality that saw them finish seventh in the Premier League last term, after they were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace.

Burnley's success last season was built on a water-tight defence, but only Fulham have conceded more goals than Dyche's side this term and Meyer almost doubled the home side's advantage before the interval when he was afforded far too much time in the area.

"It might be a case of two steps forward, and one step back, but we have to keep building and get back to having that eye of the tiger".

"There's a good group of lads in there and we need to get together and sort it out and play with a bit more belief and confidence", the 29-year-old told the club's official website.

"We've got to back ourselves and get that confidence in how we play and what we're about".
