"We knew it would be very, very tough". I said when I came here that the only thing that matters to me is where we are on the final day in May.

The latest success was built on Bakary Sako's well-taken first-half goal, some sparkling moves before the break and a more resilient performance in the second half, when Burnley stirred and began to pose a threat.

"We have a lot of injuries at the moment, but we have what I think is a competitive starting XI and affects us mostly with regard to the players I can call on from the bench and are stretched to the limit and are badly wounded", said Hodgson.

"Anything else apart from that would be a huge bonus, especially after being four games, four defeats, no points, no goals when I came (as a replacement for the sacked Frank de Boer). I would like to hope he will be closer to one month rather than months".

"He has done well very recently for us". We didn't really deal with that.

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.

"Arguably we probably deserved to scratch something out of the game". "The margins were tight when we were winning games and the margins are tight now".

And that was the fine margin that separated the sides at Selhurst Park as Burnley's three-match unbeaten run away from home was ended by a Palace side which has seemingly banished its relegation fears under the former England boss. "I'm certainly not disappointed by the look at the league table".

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.

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 just not like that".
