Absolutely shit game so far, it’s like all the poor teams have become League 1-sides over night. It’s been a while since competitive football started again but the middle of the road teams are really struggling with the entertaining part of it all.

Noticed Palace have a couple of extra players on the bench compared to Burnley - are the latter undergoing a major injury crisis or something? Not even able to put youth players on the bench to make-up the numbers?

Those players would never play anyway, so I guess they are saving money for travel and hotel expenses after Corona maybe...

Good point, I guess normal traditions don’t really apply in the circumstances.

Jay Rodriguez is injured, Jeff Hendrix Joe Hart and Arron Lennon didn’t sign contracts...

Should have been a red, he knew what he was doing.

Burnley have two keepers on their bench as well.

Interesting VAR that, not sure what I think after a few replays and then it’s probably fair with nothing. The kind of incident where a player like old Joey Barton would 100% get a red card from every person looking at the monitor, whilst someone like David Silva wouldn’t.

Think Dyche is trying to make a statement to the Burnley owners, he's made comments recently and there's been talk off him walking away if they don't make big money signings, but to be honest Burnley have the least richest owners in the league.

Burnley are now 8th. Dyche has done well for them, and would be a tough act to follow if he left them

Luke Shaw looks like he is carrying a bit of extra timber. Seems chubby
