Thank you for joining our coverage, we hope you enjoyed the game. Until next time, goodbye.
Palace travel to face Brighton and Hove Albion next, while Burnley host relegation-threatened Fulham at Turf Moor.
There goes the full-time whistle! Burnley cruise past Palace, going 2-0 up after 10 minutes as Gudmundsson and Rodriguez capitalised on defensive errors from the hosts, before a terrific Lowton strike just after half-time gave the visitors an unassailable lead. It finishes 3-0 to Burnley at Selhurst Park!
90' + 5' BLOCKS! Palace just can't break through! Riedewald curls a sumptuous strike towards the top-left corner, but it's blocked bravely away and Mateta's follow-up is also charged down!
90' + 3' Palace win three corners in the space of two minutes, but the hosts fail to test Pope in the Burnley goal, with Townsend seeing a shot blocked away.
90' + 1' Following the lengthy treatment required by Mee, we will have SEVEN additional minutes at the end of the second half.
89' Palace pin Burnley back in their own third, but the visitors repel each of the crosses, shots and penetrative passes that come their way. The Clarets can't get out, however.
P. Bardsley
E. Pieters
87' Bardsley now comes on to replace the injured Pieters and will fill in at left-back.
86' There's another delay in proceedings as Pieters now goes down with what appears to be a groin strain. He looks like he will also have to be replaced.
K. Long
B. Mee
84' Mee is stretchered off with his neck in a brace and will be replaced by Long in defence.
82' The stretcher is out for Mee and he's being placed onto it now. It looks like a serious injury for the Englishman, who continues to receive what is a lengthy spell of treatment.
80' There's some concern for Mee, who is down and in need of treatment after an accidental collision with Ayew. The central defender's injury appears to be to his neck and he has been on the turf for a couple of minutes. He will almost certainly need to be taken off.
78' OVER! Ayew sets Clyne up to cross into the box from the right and the delivery finds Townsend on the right corner of the six-yard box. His first touch is a little heavy but it takes the ball away from Mee and the Palace substitute can fire at goal from a tight angle, but he blasts over the top! He had to hit the target from that range!
J. Mateta
C. Benteke
76' Hodgson makes another change up front now, bringing Benteke off for Mateta as he looks for a route back into the game.
74' Barnes takes issue with Kouyate's challenge on him and there's an angry exchange between the two, but nothing comes of it and Burnley get the game going again from the free-kick.
R. Brady
J. Guðmunds­son
72' Dyche now makes his first change of the game, bringing Gudmunds­son off for Brady out wide.
70' WIDE! Palace just cannot get out at the moment! Another ball forward is intercepted and it's pinged over the top for Barnes, who races in behind before laying McNeil off for a low strike that fizzes just wide of the bottom-right corner! The flag then goes up belatedly for offside against Barnes, however.
68' OVER! Van Aanholt's ball down the left is cut out and Burnley work it forward quickly to Rodriguez on the edge of the box, but he fires narrowly over the bar! 
66' Van Aanholt pings the ball towards the far corner, but his looping effort is wide and nobody in a Palace shirt has gambled to turn it in at the back post.
64' Rodriguez goes for the spectacular as he hits one from some distance out on the left, but he gets it all wrong and balloons it high over the bar.
A. Townsend
M. Batshuayi
62' Hodgson makes his first substitution now, bringing Batshuayi off for Townsend and moving Ayew up front alongside Benteke.
61' WIDE! Burnley carve Palace open as they attack down the left, but Westwood can't finish the move off as he fires just wide of the top-left corner from the edge of the box!
60' SAVE! Pieters looks to cut back from the byline and his cross is blocked away to Barnes on the edge of the box. The striker takes one touch before thumping a left-footed effort that takes a wicked deflection, but it ends up in the grateful grasp of Guaita!
59' Palace attack down the left once more, with Eze looking to play Batshuayi in behind this time, but once again the timing of the pass and run isn't right and the flag halts play.
57' Van Aanholt tries to pick Benteke out in behind the Burnley defence, but the flag goes up for a clear offside.
55' Lowton's earlier strike is his first Premier League goal since April 2013, ending a run of 158 games without one in the top-flight.
53' OVER! Dann heads a clearance straight to Barnes, who advances with the ball before squaring to Lowton on the right. The right-back goes for the spectacular from outside the box, but he can't add to his tally and sends his strike over the bar.
51' SAVE! Palace try to grab one back as they throw men forward, with Ayew lofting the ball into the box for Benteke to head at goal, but it's too central and Pop hangs on!
49' Burnley have scored as many goals this afternoon as they managed in their previous 10 away league games combined - three goals from three shots on target.
J. Rodriguez
47' Rodriguez's one-touch assist was classy and composed, dropping the ball right into the path of the onrushing full-back.
M. Lowton
47' GOAL!!! LOWTON MAKES IT 3-0!!! The right-back storms down the flank, bursting past his man and feeding Rodriguez on the edge before racing into the box. The striker pops the ball over the Palace defence with one touch and Lowton thumps a sweet volley across goal and past Guaita! That's a lovely strike!
46' We're back underway for the second half!
Palace are certainly missing Zaha's ability to drag them up the field from an attacking perspective, but they've had no excuse for the lackadaisical defending that has gifted their opponents a two-goal lead. Dyche will have no complaints, however, and will surely expect his side to see out the victory in the second half.
There goes the half-time whistle! Burnley lead at the break courtesy of two defensive errors from the hosts, with Dann and Clyne failing to deal with a cross that led to Gudmundsson's opener, before some lax marking from a corner allowed Rodriguez to double the visitors' lead after just 10 minutes. It's 2-0 to Burnley at the break!
44' The end of this half continues to suffer from a lack of rhythm as the flow of the game is hampered by loose passes and cheap free-kicks.
42' Burnley are caught in possession in their own half and make a mess of attempting to stop Ayew from bursting towards the box, but the forward's half-volley from 20 yards out is bravely blocked away by Tarkowski.
40' Rodriguez upends Milivojevic on the Palace right, and the free-kick is in a promising position, but Palace take it short and the eventual delivery into the box is disappointing.
38' Eze works a short corner to Van Aanholt on the left and he swings a dangerous cross in towards the six-yard box, but Cork does brilliantly to dive and head the ball clear in a crowded box.
36' The foul count rises further as the game goes through another scrappy spell. We're up to a combined 16 fouls so far already.
34' BLOCK! Palace work the ball smoothly forward down the left and Eze crosses towards Ayew just outside the box on the left, but the forward's volley cannons off Pieters and spins behind for a corner!
32' WIDE! Palace play some neat stuff on the edge of the Burnley box and Eze is set up on the left before cutting inside and bending one towards far corner, but he places it just the wrong side of the post! He caught that strike well, but just set it too far outside the woodwork.
30' Palace have settled on the ball now and have finally pushed Burnley back into their own half, but they're struggling to penetrate the visitors' low block.
28' Mee gets his head to a McNeil corner from the right, but he can't direct it goalwards and can only flick back towards the edge of the box, where Lowton is waiting. He tries to strike the ball on the half-volley, but gets right underneath it and blazes it high over the bar.
26' SAVE! Palace launch a quick counter-attack down the left and Benteke gets past his man inside the box before drilling a low, left-footed effort across goal from a tight angle that Pope gets down to well!
24' BLOCK! McNeil swings a free-kick into the middle for Barnes, who gets his head to it and nods at goal, but Dann is there to block the ball behind for a corner!
22' The rhythm of the game is starting to get very disrupted now as more and more fouls are committed, bogging proceedings down. 
20' Batshuayi and then Benteke are penalised for fouls on Cork in the Burnley half as the two strikers desperately try to win possession back in advanced areas.
18' SAVE! Palace finally break out of their half and counter, but Benteke's low, drilled effort from the edge of the area is too central and Pope gets down to hold on!
16' This is the first time Burnley have scored in the first half of a Premier League game this calendar year, and the earliest they have scored two goals in a Premier League game since April 2018 (9 minutes against Leicester City).
14' Rodriguez has now scored five league goals against Crystal Palace, only against Nottingham Forest (six) has he bagged more in his English league career.
12' BLOCKS! Burnley are really piling on the pressure as a free-kick is lofted into the middle, but both Barnes and Cork see efforts from inside the box charged down!
D. McNeil
10' McNeil put a lovely, dipping cross into a dangerous area in the middle, but Palace's marking from the set-piece really let them down.
J. Rodriguez
10' GOAL!! BURNLEY DOUBLE THEIR LEAD!! McNeil swings the corner in from the right and Rodriguez is allowed to nod in virtually uncontested from inside the six-yard box! It's very poor defending from Palace again, and it's 2-0 to Burnley after 10 minutes!
9' BLOCKS! Gudmundsson has a pop from outside the area that is blocked, but it falls for Barnes to swipe at from inside the box, only for Dann to get his body in the way and deflect it behind for a corner!
7' Gudmundsson has now scored in consecutive Premier League games for the first time in his career. Prior to this, he had been on a run of 21 Premier League games without a goal.
J. Guðmunds­son
5' GOAL!! BURNLEY TAKE THE LEAD!! Pieters swings a cross into the middle, but Dann and Clyne get in each other's way and make a hash of it, allowing the ball to find Gudmundsson on the right side of the box. The winger cuts inside onto his left and curls a sumptuous strike into the left corner beyond the reach of Guaita! It's 1-0 to Burnley!
3' Riedewald wins the ball in midfield and bursts forward before sliding it left for Eze. The Englishman darts inside and feeds Benteke in the crowded box, but the striker's shot is blocked away.
1' We're underway at Selhurst Park!
Burnley are the first opponent to name a starting line-up with an older average age (29y 349d) than Crystal Palace (29y 148d) in a Premier League game against the Eagles this season.
Palace have lost 17 of their last 19 Premier League games in which Wilfried Zaha hasn’t played, with the Eagles failing to score in 15 of those 17 defeats.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche, meanwhile, only retains three players after naming a rotated side in the 2-0 FA Cup defeat by Championship side Bournemouth. Gudmundsson, McNeil and Rodriguez are the only ones to keep their spots as Dyche reverts to his usual first-team regulars. Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor miss out through injury.
Palace head coach Roy Hodgson makes three changes after his side were beaten 2-0 by Leeds United on Monday. Cahill, Mitchell and Mateta are the trio that drop to the bench, with Kouyate, Benteke and Batshuayi taking their places in the starting line-up. James McArthur, James McCarthy, Connor Wickham, Wilfried Zaha, Jeffrey Schlupp, Mamadou Sakho, Wayne Hennessey, Nathan Ferguson and James Tomkins make up an extensive injury list for the hosts.
Burnley substitutes: Phil Bardsley, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Anthony Driscoll-Glennon, Joel Mumbongo, Robbie Brady, Dale Stephens, Jimmy Dunne, Kevin Long, Josh Brownhill.
Burnley XI (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matthew Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Erik Pieters; Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Ashley Westwood, Jack Cork, Dwight McNeil; Ashley Barnes, Jay Rodriguez.
Crystal Palace substitutes: Andros Townsend, Martin Kelly, Jack Butland, Gary Cahill, Tyrick Mitchell, Joel Ward, Jean-Philippe Mateta.
Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Vicente Guaita; Nathaniel Clyne, Cheikhou Kouyate, Scott Dann, Patrick van Aanholt; Jordan Ayew, Luka Milivojevic, Jairo Riedewald, Eberechi Eze; Christian Benteke, Michy Batshuayi.
Crystal Palace host a Burnley side that, despite sitting 17th in the Premier League table, are eight points clear of the relegation zone and will hope to extend that gap as they visit 13th-placed Palace in London this afternoon.
