Burnley 0 - 2 Crystal Palace : Wilfried Zaha and Jeffrey Schlupp score to lift Crystal Palace into the top half with hard - earned victory over Burnley . Both sides failed to control the game in a quiet first half with few chances. Jordan Ayew thought he scored after 39 minutes but was ruled out for offside.

Wilfried Zaha said his season “starts now” after he scored in back-to-back games for Crystal Palace for the first time since February. The winger had been struggling for consistency since trying to force through a transfer in the summer, and had not found the net until last weekend against Liverpool.

Sean Dyche watched his team shoot themselves in the foot – twice – and marched towards the dressing room. You would not have fancied being in there when he arrived. 

The Clarets boss was furious, and rightly so, after a self-inflicted defeat in a game he may well have expected three points from. 

First, goalkeeper Nick Pope was beaten at his near post on the stroke of half-time by a low shot from a resurgent Wilfried Zaha which he should have saved.

Then, as the Clarets chased an equaliser, defender Ben Mee tried to clear the ball but succeeded only in booting it against himself.

  Crystal Palace 1-0 Bournemouth: Report, Ratings & Reaction as Schlupp Seals Win for 10-Man Eagles gles ​Crystal Palace have moved into fifth place in the Premier League table thanks to Jeffery Schlupp's brilliant second half goal at home to Eddie Howe's Bournemouth, who are now without a win in more than a month. The Eagles even had one hand tied behind their back for the majority of the match when Mamadou Sakho was sent off for a high foot on Adam Smith, being shown the red card mostly for the follow-through after initially winning the ball.It was a first-half that wasn't always easy on the eye, but Bournemouth had a bee in their bonnet after the break and were only denied an opening goal after an outstanding last-ditch interception from Martin Kelly.

 It meant Palace picked up their first win in six and left Dyche’s side, who came into this clash in seventh, wondering what on earth had just happened. 

If ever a game needed an early goal it was this one. With both teams, you know what you are going to get. Burnley, in their usual 4-4-2, will launch balls into the area at every opportunity.

Palace will sit deep and aim to use the pace of Zaha and Andros Townsend on the break. It does not make for a spectacle to warm the cockles on a freezing Lancashire afternoon.

  Aston Villa 1-4 Leicester: Foxes cut gap to Premier League leaders Liverpool to eight points as Jamie Vardy double inspires Brendan Rodgers' side to stylish victory over hosts TOM COLLOMOSSE AT VILLA PARK: Jamie Vardy was in scintillating goalscoring form once again as he extended his lead at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts.This was Leicester's eighth consecutive league win – something they had never achieved before in the top flight – and the eighth game in a row in which Vardy has scored. Extend that run by four, and Vardy will surpass his own 11-game scoring streak, set in the title-winning year of 2015-16.

Unfortunately, it did not get one. Other than a miscued Jack Cork volley and a deflected long-range shot from Dwight McNeil easily held by Palace keeper Vicente Guaita, there was little of note from an opening 30 minutes in which the Eagles rarely ventured outside their own half. 

The first sight of goal came when the impressive Robbie Brady dinked a ball through for Ashley Barnes close to the penalty spot, but the Clarets striker – usually prolific – could not dig it out and the chance passed.

On their first attack of note, Palace did have the ball in the net when Jordan Ayew tapped in a Van Aanholt cross but the Dutchman was yards offside, something we ridiculously needed VAR to confirm. It mattered little. 

On the stroke of half-time Zaha produced the only moment of quality to break the deadlock, shifting the ball from his right to his left after collecting a pass from Luka Milivojevic to create space beyond Phil Bardsley and rifling a shot past Pope.

The Burnley keeper, who made his full England debut in Kosovo, should have done better but could only get a weak hand to the Ivorian’s effort. 

For Zaha, denied a move to Arsenal in the summer, it was his second goal in as many games after a relatively barren start to the year. He had vowed to get his head down and concentrate on his football. 

It would appear that he is doing so. Burnley showed intent from the off after the break, with Erik Pieters crashing a volley into the side-netting at the far post.

In the 55th minute there was a flashpoint when Bardsley caught Zaha late. The former Manchester United men then had a frank exchange of views on the touchline with Roy Hodgson stepping in to separate. 

Bardsley was booked, while VAR ruled out a red card. Seconds later came the miss of the season when Burnley’s Chris Wood was unintentionally played in by a misjudged header from Palace’s Cheikhou Kouyate. 

It’s time for football to accept that racism is a football problem

  It’s time for football to accept that racism is a football problem It’s not football’s problem but a problem in wider society, we are told. Repeatedly. Yet why do the two have to be mutually exclusive? Is it not becoming obvious that the two are, in fact, intrinsically linked? Is it not clear that one of the most broadcast areas of society is being used to spread a message of hate?Watch: Solskjaer enjoys Man United's successful three days [Perform] require(["binding"], function (binding) { binding("wcVideoPlayer", "#video_player_4054876a-9b8c-4479-abae-f64e3aa61a9b").

The Kiwi, yards out, blazed his shot into the second tier before looking to the sky, presumably to curse his luck rather than to see where it landed. The hosts continued to press.

Ben Mee saw a header blocked and the hapless Wood reacted first only to see his follow up blocked on the line by James McArthur. 

However, they could not find a way through and the visitors wrapped up a much-needed three points when sub Schlupp capitalised on Mee’s disaster. 

Guaita did save brilliantly from Wood’s header but the win was never threatened.
