Crystal Palace boss Hodgson hails matchwinner Sako: His contract?

Burnley defensive duo excited about upcoming fixtures despite challenging festive period

"For me it is good to be involved in this level of the game and it makes me stronger as a player and can only be to my advantage".

"Credit to Burnley because they are doing very well but for us it's another very important game and we will be going into it looking to get maximum points which is no different to any other week".

'It is interesting to see that very few transfers seem to have been actually nailed down in the middle of January.

"The only thing that interests me - and I have said it right from the start - is where we are on the final day of May and being one place above the relegation zone. Anything more than that would be a huge bonus".

However, while the latter's will not require any form of operation, Schlupp is set to go under the knife and, more worrying is the amount of time he would spend on the sidelines with Hodgson "talking months rather weeks". It was Sako's sixth goal of the season.

Bakary Sako shone in a rampant attacking performance during the opening half hour, when he scored the decisive goal, before an injury-ravaged Palace defence repelled a robust Burnley response in the closing stages.

The Lancashire club remain seventh after making a fine start to the season but they are without a victory from their past seven fixtures and risk undermining their previously impressive results.

It was a case of "close but no cigar" according to Sean Dyche as the Clarets lost out to Bakary Sakho's strike against Crystal Palace. We didn't really deal with that. "They were better than us in the first half, not by miles".

"I thought we probably deserved to scratch a draw out of the game at the end, but the margins don't change the record. I'm certainly not disappointed by the look at the league table".

"He has waited a long time at Tottenham but they have got a very deep squad so while he has tried to earn his chance there, it hasn't come round. The Premier League is just not like that".
