Such is the transformation wrought by Roy Hodgson, it is hard to envisage how Crystal Palace could not beg, steal or borrow a goal, let alone a Premier League match point, during the troubled early stages of the campaign. It became seven games, seven defeats.

"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".

Nkoudou joined the Clarets on loan from Tottenham for the rest of the season this week and is expected to go straight into the starting line-up as his new side look to secure their first win in six top-flight games.

Sako scored the victor against Burnley by side-stepping defender Phil Bardsley and driving a powerful shot past goalkeeper Nick Pope for his seventh goal of the season.

"I have enjoyed my time here and it's a great opportunity to play in the Premier League and has been a good experience for me", the Dutchman added.

"We will make a decision whether we think he should start, or start on the bench".
