Timothy Fosu-Mensah: I'm enjoying my loan at Crystal Palace

Rangers linked with Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield

Sako's angled left-foot drive in the 21st minute was enough to take Palace to 12th on 25 points, five above the relegation zone after they made the worst start to a top-flight English league campaign with no points or goals after seven matches.

Roy Hodgson will look to continue that spell of good form by picking up three points against Sean Dyche's Burnley. "The margins were tight when we were winning games and the margins are tight now". At that stage things were looking very, very bleak.

Dyche believes Nkoudou is desperate to make an impression after having his opportunities restricted at Spurs, for whom he is yet to start a Premier League game since signing for a reported £11million from Marseille in 2016.

"It's nice now that it no longer looks so bleak, and we should enjoy that, but there are going to be lots more games like the one today".

"It is very good that he could chip in with another good goal and I thought his first half performance was very good".

The Eagles nearly doubled their lead nearly immediately when Ben Mee was forced to clear the ball off the line as James McArthur was about to close in on Zaha's chip.

The Eagles were much the better team before the interval but rode their luck after half time before clinching their sixth win of the season.

Christian Benteke headed a Milivojevic corner over the Burnley crossbar on 28 minutes, as Sam Vokes flashed a header, from a Johann Berg Gudmundsson delivery, just wide with the half winding down, ahead of a finger-tip save from a Barnes volley.

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. Benteke hit the side-netting on a counter-attack as another chance went begging for the Belgium striker, buy Palace saw out added time to seal their second successive league win.
