Bakary Sako celebrates after netting against Burnley
Palace made the worst start to a top-flight English league campaign with no points or goals from their first seven matches, but they are now five points clear of the drop zone thanks to Bakary Sako's 21st-minute victor against the Clarets. "The margins were tight when we were winning games and the margins are tight now".
"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".
Burnley haven't come from behind to win in the Premier League under Sean Dyche ever, and almost found their task even more hard as James McArthur stormed into tap into an empty net, superb defending by Ben Mee keeping the midfielder out.
"Second half, we were at least decent and I thought we deserved to scratch a draw", saidBurnley manager Sean Dyche.
"But there's going to be lots more games like the one today where you think you do more than enough to merit the three points but you have to suffer during the second half".
The Eagles nearly doubled their lead moments later when Wilfried Zaha beat Pope to the ball and his cross trickled across the goal-line but James McArthur could not beat Ben Mee to the ball who managed to clear the danger.
Palace didn't take their foot off the gas and should have been two up when Benteke rose highest from a corner, heading narrowly over from just yards out. "He was in the team on merit - he chipped in with a goal, a good goal".
"They were better than us in the first half - but not by miles".
Benteke looked certain to score when he rose to meet Sako's left-wing cross in the 69th but again he proved why he only has one goal to his name this season by floating his header wide. Vokes went close to connecting with Tarkowski's low cross a few minutes later as Palace dropped deeper to protect their slender lead.
